Jeffrey Saad’s 10 Minute Rolled Salmon Sandwich Recipe
1 piece flatbread or naan
1 salmon filet (3 oz)
1 pinch salt
1 Tbsp chopped green onion
¼ tsp dried sumac
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp sesame seeds
¼ Peeled and diced English cucumber
1 Tbsp yogurt
1 Tbsp fresh mint (optional item)
Side of Zucchini
1 Zucchini (cut it into ½ in cubes)
1 Tbsp pine nuts
½ tsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp dried oregano
1 pinch of salt
1. Cut the salmon on a 45-degree angle (1/4-in thick slices.)
2. Lay the slices flat towards the center of the bread.
3. Add a pinch of salt. (Don’t need much because the dish is already flavorful).
4. Sprinkle the salmon (evenly) with the green onion, sumac, thyme, and sesame seeds last.
5. Place the bread in the toaster oven and turn to the broil setting. (Broil for 3 minutes. Salmon should be thoroughly cooked to desired temperature-3 minutes will yield a pink salmon.)
6. While salmon is cooking, combine yogurt and cucumber.
7. Carefully remove bread from the oven and lay on a plate.
8. Spoon the yogurt and cucumber mixture evenly across the salmon and sprinkle with the mint.
9. To roll the sandwich, fold the sides towards the center so that you have 2-in flaps.
10. Press down over the ingredients and pinch.
11. Bring the flap of bread closest to you across the top of the ingredients and touch the far side of the bread, then tuck and roll like a sleeping bag.
12. Cut in half.
13. Garnish with a pinch of mint (optional).
14. For the zucchini, turn toaster oven to broil and then mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
15. Pour out flat onto a foil lined toaster oven pan.
16. Place in toaster oven and broil (approximately 3 minutes or until slightly golden.)

If you can’t find or don’t prefer flatbread, a tortilla works great too! For tortillas, fold the sandwich like a taco or you can add a handful of chopped lettuce and eat open face.
