Roasted Salmon Sandwiches

My family and I have been enjoying some concerts in the park this past summer. It’s been fun getting out, packing a picnic dinner and listening to live music. We usually go with friends and all our kids will run around, exhausting themselves by the end of the evening. I’ve had the fun challenge of coming up with dinners that can be eaten with little or no utensils. The last concert was just before Labor Day and we ate these sandwiches. They were delicious and so easy to make.

Start with a 1 1/2 pound salmon filet. Brush it with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. I baked it in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes and it was perfectly tender and juicy. While the salmon was baking, I made a yogurt dill sauce.

The sauce is made in a food processor with very little chopping involved. It’s an incredibly flavorful sauce, but doesn’t over power the salmon. Once the salmon is cooked, cut it into quarters, put it on some good ciabatta rolls with the sauce and some salad greens. I loaded the sandwiches with the yogurt sauce and still had some leftover. I ended up using the leftover sauce as a veggie dip. We’ll definitely be having these sandwiches again, even if our picnicing days are coming to a close.
