Seared Salmon Salad Sandwich

Seared Salmon Salad Sandwiches

This salmon salad is a great way to use up left over fish or can be used to get a little more shelf life out of your salmon. You can make this with any fish; grilled, broiled, or fried.

My favorite way to do is is with wood grilled salmon or trout, depending on the season. You can save a lot of money by eating fish in season, that's when you get the best prices. You can substitute trout,  Arctic char, pollack, haddock, or cod. I like the meatier fish like trout, salmon, char, or swordfish. Farm raised salmon works great and is usually very economical. Remember that the fish oil is very good for your cardiovascular health and the protein is good for muscular development. This dish also contains lots of vegetable fiber and anti-oxidants.

  • 4 ounces of daikon radish (Optional, but adds some zing)
