Easy Mediterranean Salmon Breakfast Sandwich: This Zesty Salmon Sandwich Recipe Takes Lox & Bagels to a Whole New Level by Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds
Salmon is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, and is part of a heart-healthy Mediterranean diet that promotes health and longevity. A 3.5-ounce serving of salmon contains a whopping 22 to 25 grams of protein, is high in B vitamins (think niacin, riboflavin, folic acid), has 59 to 67 percent of the recommended daily allowance of selenium and is a good source of potassium, which may reduce high blood pressure.
My husband and I try to eat salmon a couple times a week, and we usually have leftovers. I used our leftover salmon to make an incredibly tangy and zesty salmon breakfast sandwich that can be eaten any time of day. This sandwich is creamy, lemony, tasty goodness that is crave-worthy. Leftover salmon just became an easy, healthy and delicious main course that I’ll be making again and again.
