Delicious Fishwich

by in Recipe Reviews

This salmon burger is as classic as a sandwich gets–meat and veggies on bread. With salmon and avocado, however, you get an excellent amount of healthy fats. Serve it on good whole-wheat rolls or bread for nutty, hearty, whole-grain goodness.

Delicious and nutritious – who could ask for more? This Cajun-spiced salmon sandwich is cooled by creamy avocado-mayo, making it a wonderful source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

    Love this sandwich, I made it last week using leftover salmon and
    avocado and tomatoes.  I would recommend skipping the mayo and
    spreading the softened avocado as though it were the spread!
