This recipe had its origins in my very favorite BLT. Not your classic bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich, but a BLT all spiffed up with added salmon and avocado. 

I’d been eating the sandwich at a local restaurant for ages. With a balcony overlooking the river and craft beer too, it’s a favorite stop.

But then I decided to go keto. Yup, keto throws a monkey wrench into any sandwich. Add in restaurant closures from Covid-19, and it’s all over.  With crunchy bacon, creamy avocado and tasty salmon, the Salmon BLAT Lettuce Wrap turns a classic sandwich into a low-carb dream meal. 

So when my Sunday blogging group decided to feature BLT’s, I wondered how I’d manage.

I decided the answer was turning it into a lettuce wrap. Yum! 

Ingredients

Now I admit that the idea of doing a lettuce wrap was a little intimidating. I remember some pretty awkward lettuce wraps in my past. But when I look online, most of the lettuce warps were simply folded over like a taco. No fancy burrito wrap at all. I can do that, I thought.

When I finished, well, it wasn’t super cute, but it was absolutely delicious. In fact even when I stop keto, I think this is going to be my go-to version.

Bring on swim-suit season!

Ingredients
  

  • 12 ounces salmon filet 3 ounces per lettuce leaf "sandwich/wrap"
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 4 large lettuce leaves I used Romaine
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 4 slices cooked bacon drained
  • 1/2 avocado sliced

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in frying pan on medium heat.  Salt and pepper salmon, then sauté until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.  If the salmon has skin, discard it.
  • Lay out the first lettuce leaf and drizzle the front half with ½ Tablespoon mayonnaise.  Top the mayonnaise with 1-2 tomato slices, 1 slice of bacon broken in half, a couple avocado slices and ¼ of the cooked salmon (about 3 ounces). 
  • Fold the back half of the lettuce forward to make a “top” for your wrap.  Secure with a toothpick if needed.
  • Repeat with the other 3 lettuce leaves and remaining ingredients. 

Notes

Unless you have very large lettuce leaves, these will make 4 wraps--and I serve 2 per person.

      I was kind of shocked at the calories in this, even without the bread. So that’s some real incentive to keep doing it this way!

    My first thought when I saw the salmon and avocado was “my mother would love this!”. And now I really want to have one for her.
