The most Parisian sandwich : grilled salmon club sandwich

Parisian grilled salmon sandwich_002Most of the time, I just like to make quick and simple dish for dinner. And what is easier than a sandwich ? According to TNS Sofres, the most popular dish in Paris is grilled salmon coming first before the fillet of duck breast, the most popular dish in France. Also for the most Parisian sandwich, I imagined a salmon club sandwich revisited. I used a low carb yogurt sauce for a healthy and diet-friendly recipe.


  • 3-4 once piece of salmon, preferably wild, bones removed
  • 2 tablespoons of yogurt/fromage blanc
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 pinch of 4 spices mix (nutmeg, peppercorn, ginger, cloves)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sliced rye bread
  • Chives
  • Red mustard leaves (or salad)
  • Olive oïl

In a bowl, mix the yogurt and the lemon juice. Peel and finely chop 1 inch piece of fresh ginger. Chop chives. Stir in the chopped ginger and chives, 1 pinch of 4 spices mix, salt and pepper to the sauce.

Toast the bread in the toaster or in the oven.

Remove the skin from the salmon, then flake into small pieces.

Spread rye bread with a bit of lemon yogurt sauce. Layer on the salmon, more sauce, and red mustard leaves. Sprinkle on chopped chives.
