  • Start by mixing the ingredients for the chive mayo.

  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • In the same skillet, fry the slices of bacon until caramelized but still chewy.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Reduce the flame to medium low and immediately place the salmon filet in the skillet, seasoned on both side with salt and pepper.

  • Place the sourdough slices, olive oil-side up, on a cutting board.
  • Spread a generous portion of chive mayo on both slices.
  • On one slice, add the lettuce leaf, the bacon, layer the tomato slices, and finally, top with the seared salmon.
