Something bad has happened
Seven ingredients and fifteen minutes gets you a profusion of flavor, texture, and temperature in one spectacular sandwich.
- 4 (4 ounce) boned, skinned salmon fillets
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 Safeway SELECT Artisan Onion or Plain Focaccia, halved horizontally
- 3/4 cup Russian-style salad dressing
- 2 cups mixed greens, rinsed and crisped
- Pickled Onion
- 1 (8 ounce) onion, peeled and cut lengthwise into slivers
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
Rub your fingers over salmon pieces to locate any bones and pull them out with tweezers. Rinse fish, pat dry, and rub lightly with oil.
Set a 10- to 12-inch ovenproof nonstick frying pan over high heat. When hot, lay salmon pieces side by side in pan. Cook until fish is browned on the bottom (lift a corner with a wide spatula to check), 1 to 2 minutes.
Transfer pan to a 400 degree F oven and bake until salmon is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), 4 to 5 minutes. When fish goes into the oven, put bread (cut sides together) on rack alongside fish, and bake until hot, 3 to 5 minutes.
Pickled onion : In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over high heat, bring onion, 1/4 cup water, and 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar to a boil; stir often until liquid has evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. Pour into a small bowl and add salt to taste.
With halves still together, cut focaccia into 4 equal rectangles. Spread cut sides equally with Russian dressing. Mound 1/4 of the lettuce on the bottom half of each rectangle and set a piece of salmon on the greens. Top fish equally with pickled onion and season sandwiches to taste with salt. Cover with top half of bread.
