Serious Sandwiches: Salmon BLT

Over at Serious Eats, there's a daily feature called A Sandwich a Day. This is one of my submissions for that feature.

This isn't a filet 'o mystery-fish sandwich. The Fresh Salmon BLT ($11) at Mike O'Shays in Longmont, Colorado, includes a nice-sized salmon fillet served on a substantial baguette. It's topped with an herby garlic mayo, applewood smoked bacon, tomato slices and lettuce.

The salmon definitely plays the starring role but the green, garlicky mayo is just the right accompaniment. You also get a choice of fries (regular or sweet potato!), cole slaw, or salad.
