Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice, 3 tablespoons olive oil, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Incorporate onions, mix, and let it sit so onions will pickle or macerate while the rest of the ingredients are prepared.

  5. Brush a baking dish with olive oil, place salmon in dish and pour chipotle mixture over it, spreading evenly. Bake from 10 to 12 minutes, until salmon is cooked through, yet still very moist. Remove from oven.
  6. In a large skillet or grill pan set over medium heat, cook bacon for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until crisp and browned. Transfer to a plate covered with a paper towel.
  7. When ready to make sandwiches, mix vinaigrette with red onions and incorporate baby greens, toss well. Toast bread. On bottom slice of bread, place a cooked salmon filet, top with 2 or 3 half-slices of bacon, a serving of baby greens, 2 to 3 avocado slices, and top with the other slice of bread to complete the sandwich.
