Blackened Salmon Sandwich

Continuing the #avocado theme, here is a recipe that uses a simple avocado-based sandwich spread. The salmon has a bit of Cajun flair that adds a hint of heat, as well as a peppery sharp arugula (or rocket for those of you not from the US).

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


  • 1/2 haas avocado
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 8 oz salmon, skin on
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 4 hamburger rolls
  • 1 oz arugula
  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 1/2 medium red onion


  1. Take the avocado half and spoon over the mayonnaise into a bowl. Mash it together with a fork.IMG_20140921_202817

  4. Cut the salmon into 4 pieces, then pat them all dry.IMG_20140921_204011
  5. Rub each salmon fillet with the Cajun seasoning thoroughly. Heat the the pan over medium-high, then add the salmon skin-side down.IMG_20140921_205056
  6. Cook the salmon for 5-7 minutes with the skin side down. The skin should get crispy, and it should be easy to use a spatula to move. Flip the salmon and cook another 2-3 minutes or until the salmon is cooked, being careful not to overcook.IMG_20140921_205839
  7. Spread the avocado mash onto the buns, and add the salmon, arugula, tomato and onion slices.IMG_20140921_205929
  8. Close the sandwich and serve!IMG_20140921_210016
