Delicious! These sandwiches are packed with flavor. The salmon marinade is wonderful and very tasty. It pairs really well with the mayo/sirracha mixture. I chose to toast our buns before spreading on the mayo mixture. The slaw is fantastic and was great on the salmon sandwiches. If you are short on time, though, the sandwiches would still be excellent if you skipped the slaw. I made the slaw in the morning so it was ready to go at dinner time. It took me more time to prep than the time listed. I know I will be making these delicious sandwiches again. Thank you for posting such a quality recipe! Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
Really liked the salmon in the sandwich. Served the slaw on the side. I made it ahead of time and was wilted. Would like it better crisp so will not make ahead next time.
