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.
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!
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!
- 12 ounce salmon filet
- 1 Tablespoon oil
- 4 large lettuce leaves (I used Romaine)
- 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tomato, sliced
- 4 slices cooked bacon
- 1 avocado, sliced
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 few avocado slicesband 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.
