    1. Cook the bacon in a large deep frypan over medium-high heat until evenly browned; about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
    2. Preheat a barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grill. Evenly coat the salmon with the olive oil.
    3. Cook the salmon on the preheated barbecue with the skin side down for about 5 minutes before turning and cooking on the other side until the skin can easily be lifted off the flesh; about 5 minutes more.
    4. Flip the salmon once more and continue cooking until the salmon flakes easily with a fork; another 2 to 3 minutes.
    5. Whisk the mayonnaise, dill and lemon zest together in a small bowl; divide between 2 of the toasted bread slices.
    6. Top each toasted bread with a piece of cooked salmon, 2 tomato slices, 2 bacon slices, 1 lettuce leaf and a then the remaining slice of toasted bread.

    Delish! I thought the mayo sauce was a tad on the bland side the original way so I modified it to my liking, which is great about recipies! I used the same amount of mayo, 1 tsp of dill, 1/2 tsp lemon pepper, tad bit more cracked black pepper, salt, and it was PERFECT!!!!! I think the lemon pepper was key. Just a few shakes goes a long way. Turkey bacon for a little healther fat, and whole wheat buns, added sauce to fish and to buns.... THANK YOU!! =)  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    10 star recipe! This was absolutely fantastic. I don't think I've ever had salmon and bacon together and wow, what a perfect pair. The dill sauce was a perfect compliment. Definitely will be making this again. Thanks!  -  27 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was an excellent recipe. I made one small change - I applied the sauce to the salmon BEFORE grilling, and also used it as suggested on the sandwich itself. Yum!  -  11 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
