BLT Sandwich with Salmon and Avocado

At this time a few years ago I was working at Glacier Bay Alaska and the memories of that experience reminded me of a sandwich I made then using the local king salmon. It was a variation of the classic bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich with the decadent addition of the salmon and creamy sliced avocado. Today I recreated that same sandwich but using another salmon then the absolutely fresh king salmon that was in abundance there. Lots of color, textures and very good flavors.

Alaskan BLT Sandwich
3 ounces thin sliced salmon fillet, King if possible
3 strips smoked bacon, crispy cooked
3-4 slices heirloom tomatoes
1-2 leaves lettuce
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
2 slices good quality sliced bread, toasted
1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1. Saute the salmon fillet, allow to cool
2. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on both bread slices.
3. Layer all ingredients between the bread slices.
4. Slice in half and enjoy!
