Jalapeno salmon sandwich

Whenever we have salmon for dinner, I always buy an extra fillet to make this sandwich for the following day. It’s definitely easy to open a can of tuna sometimes but this salmon sandwich is just as easy (I promise!) No matter what the labels say on canned tuna, at the end of the day you’re eating something that’s been sitting in a can for months or even years.  Instead…do your body, skin and brain a favor and get yourself a fresh salmon fillet for a sandwich rich in omega 3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants and many more. Follow the steps below for an easy and delicious sandwich.


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 4 green onions
  • 2 tbs mayo of choice
  • 1 lemon or lime
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper



  1. If you are using leftovers then skip this step, if you’re making the sandwich from scratch then preheat oven to 400 and place your salmon fillets on a sheet pan, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 15-20 minutes until they are fully cooked. Let the salmon cool.
  2. In mixing bowl, add the salmon and mash with a fork. Mince the jalapenos removing the seeds if you don’t like it too spicy and chop up your onions.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl and mash until combined very very well.

4. Add the mixture in a sandwich and enjoy. This could be done the night before as well.
