This recipe is inspired by my friend, Jessica's Crispy Salmon BLT Sliders with Chipotle Mayo. Love them so much because I love anything with bacon, lettuce and tomato! But seriously, I never would have thought to pair salmon and a BLT. A bunch of friends and I are celebrating a dear, sweet friend, Jessica. She has an amazingly creative food blog, a beautiful cookbook that was just released in September and a new baby on the way. I wish we could all attend a baby shower in person and since we can't, we're celebrating virutually, thanks to Bev and Ashley.
Side note: When I think of Jessica, I smile. She's hilarious, caring and amazingly talented and humble. I remember a couple of years ago spending time with her on a brand trip, I had just gotten laid off from my job and she was incredibly supportive and encouraging. I appreciate her so much! When I was thinking about what recipe I would make for this virtual (so sad we can't do it in person) baby shower, I thought of her Salmon BLT sliders and wanted to include avocado in some kind of way because she LOVES avocado. And the brie, it was an afterthought and it might sound really weird and strange but it's perfect. I'm a just a little too obsessed with brie cheese lately…
Add all of the ingredients with the liquids first for the aioli into a blender.
Blend until smooth and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
Cut the salmon into 8 pieces. It's up to you if you want to remove the skin.
Broil for 5 minutes on each side.
Stack the bacon, lettuce and tomato sliders. First spread the aioli on the bottom of slider or dinner rolls, then add the salmon, some brie cheese and then stack the bacon, lettuce and tomato.
I'm so excited for Jessica…she's an amazing person who is extremely supportive of her friends, so talented and humble at the same time, she's going to make an amazing Mom! I hope she enjoy the shower we threw for her and these Salmon BLT sliders!!
Salmon BLT Sliders with an Avocado Aioli & Brie Recipe

Salmon BLT Sliders
- 1 to 1 1/4 pound salmon

- 8 dinner rolls
- sliced bacon, cooked
- red or green leaf lettuce
- one plum tomato, sliced
- Turn on your oven broiler (mine goes to 550 degrees F).
- Add aioli ingredients to your blender (liquids first) and blend until smooth. Pour into a small bowl and cover and refrigerate until use.
- Cut salmon into 8 equal pieces and sprinkle salt and pepper on top. Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Broil salmon for 5 minutes on each side.
- While salmon is broiling, prep the other ingredients.
- Cut dinner rolls/slider buns in half and spread aioli on the bottom, place one piece of salmon, a few pieces of brie on top of the salmon and then stack the bacon, lettuce and tomato on top. Serve immediately.
Seriously, the oozy brie drives me crazy. Brie and salmon, it's a thing. 🙂
