Saucy Mama + Nila Rosa's First Giveaway
A heavenly piece of salmon transformed into my favorite sandwich.
Salmon is a pretty amazing fish to me. The flavors are bold on their own and unlike most white fishes, you don't have to add alot of seasoning to make it taste amazing.Usually the rule is to cook salmon with something acidic such as lemons to cut through the fattiness, but when paired with bold items such as bacon and avocado, it can turn into quite an amazing meal.
There was a call for foodbloggers awhile ago to try out Saucy Mama's products and come up with a recipe to be entered into a contest. I was very interested in her sauces, so I decided to enter my name and give it a shot.One day, I was pleasantly surprised to find a package on my doorstep. Thank you, Saucy Mama! She has a line of several marinades and vinaigrettes that are seriously amazing. For the salmon, I paired it with the parmesan-garlic marinade. The marinade was the perfect addition to the fish. When I have the sandwich next time around, I will be sure to have bottles of Saucy Mama parmesan-garlic in stock.
Salmon,Avocado,and Bacon Sandwich

1. Season salmon with salt and pepper. On a preheated grill, place the salmon. While cooking, baste salmon with parmesan garlic marinade. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side.*
2. On the ciabatta roll, place the salmon fillet. Flake the salmon, so it covers most of the bread. Layer on the bacon, avocado, and tomato and enjoy.
