I’ve been workout a lot lately so I increase my protein intake. This blackened salmon sandwich is a great way to meet my goal of increasing my protein.
The sandwich is great if keep the fillets thin ~ a thicker fillet over powers the other ingredients. Also, grill each side to have a nice crust on it.

4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
2 teaspoons blackening or Cajun seasoning (see Ingredient note)
1 small avocado, pitted
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
4 crusty whole-wheat rolls, split and toasted
1 cup arugula
2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
Oil grill rack, preheat grill to high. Rub blackening (or Cajun) seasoning on both sides of salmon. Grill until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Mash together avocado and mayonnaise in a small bowl. To assemble sandwiches, spread the avocado mixture on the bottom half of each roll. Top with the salmon, arugula, tomato and onion.
