Makes 4 servings

2 Tbs brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

4 (5-ounce) wild salmon fillets, skin and pin bones removed

"To keep sandwiches from becoming dreaded deck food throughout the long summer salmon season, I came up with this flavorful spicy salmon sandwich from my husband's love of his salmon hot and sweet," says LaDonna.

Directions:

In a small bowl, stir together jalapeƱos and mayonnaise. Spread on cut sides of rolls.

On a plate, stir the brown sugar, chili powder and cumin. Press tops of salmon fillets into spice mixture.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add oil, heat until hot. Add salmon, spice side down, cook 2-3 minutes or until browned. Turn salmon and cook another 3-4 minutes or until salmon begins to flake. Place salmon on bottom half of roll, top with lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Cover with top half.
