Salmon BLT Wrap with Chive Aioli by Mom De Cuisine

When I was in college, I got my first job waiting tables. There was a small Pub across the street from where I worked that had a great salmon BLT. At the time I thought it was the best sandwich I’d ever eaten in my life. While I think my tastes have matured a bit since then, I still remember what a great sandwich it was.

Fast forward several a few years later and I was going through the ‘fridge trying to decide what to do for dinner. I realized I had some “use-them-or-lose-them” items. You know, those things that are still good but give them another day and they will be freezer-burned, wilted, moldy, slimy, or just gross. As I pulled them out, I realized I had the makings for another great salmon BLT.

The best part of this dinner was that it come together like an easy weeknight, wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am meal but tasted like it took hours to prepare.
