So. This sandwich?
I’m starting to think no matter what the preparation is, Copper River salmon is going to be delicious. Every way we’ve eaten it so far has been absolutely perfect and this was no exception.
Avocado is mashed with pesto, spread over fresh ciabatta bread, and then topped with a luscious piece of salmon. The flavors are incredible.
It isn’t exactly the easiest sandwich to eat, but I promise that you won’t even care. The ultra-rich, plentiful good fats and food favorites completely make up for it.
