Salmon BLT Wrap with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Okay, so I’m not picky about many foods.  I’ll eat just about anything.  I mean, there are a couple of foods that I’m not super crazy about, but even those surprise me from time to time when they are prepared well.  Salmon is one of them.  I’ve never been a salmon person.  Salmon patties, lemon salmon, sesame ginger salmon…  Even a garlicky heavy cream laden salmon didn’t do it for me!  But then I discovered this…salmonblt_retouched

  • 4 4oz salmon fillets
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 4 Ole Mexican Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb tortillas
  • 2 cups romaine
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion

Place bacon on a cookie sheet or casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.  Do not preheat oven.   Once bacon is crisp, remove from oven and set aside on paper towels

Turn on broiler.  Season salmon fillets generously with salt and pepper, and place them on a baking sheet or casserole dish lined with heavy duty aluminum foil.  Broil fillets for ten minutes, flipping them over halfway through cook time.

Finely chop one or two chipotle peppers and mix well with mayonnaise.  Add some of the sauce from the can too, but be careful…  A little goes a long way with this stuff!  Be sure to taste test as you go.

Spread the chipotle mayonnaise on a tortilla (or ciabatta or piece of lettuce or whatever) along with a salmon fillet, two pieces of bacon, a few slices of tomato, chopped red onion, and a small handful of romaine.

This is seriously so good!  Salmon fillets are now always on hand in my kitchen, and this recipe is the only reason.  Also, those little canned chipotles are so wonderful…  I am finding new uses for those things all of the time.  Enjoy!
