Sandwiches… where does one even start?! Can you find something more versatile that can be both very complex or super easy to make? I would almost dare to state that there’s no one who doesn’t love a good sandwich. Since you can vary the bread and toppings endlessly and top it with whatever you like and prefer a sandwich is really something everyone can enjoy. I don’t make them that often I have to admit. But I do enjoy making them during the weekend. When you really have the time to prepare something special, with maybe not fancy or complicated ingredients, but still something you might not make during the week. And then to just sit and enjoy a good and delicious breakfast/brunch/lunch for a long while. This recipe is for sandwiches made two ways, having fish as the theme. I guess you might know that fish is my favorite food, no questions asked (or ok, I love seafood as well). So making a delicious, tasty weekend sandwich topped with two different fish salads is one of the best things I can come to think of. But actually you can make these sandwiches during the week as well. They really don’t take long time to prepare, and you can actually both boil the egg and combine the ingredients for the salads in advance. I used a gluten free whole grain bread for these sandwiches, and would recommend you yo use the same. The whole grain bread makes a lovely contrast to the creamy salads.

A few tips:

  • I used gluten free whole grain bread when making these sandwiches. I would recommend you to use a whole grain bread since it adds a nice texture and taste to the sandwich.
  • The amount of dijon mustard can be adjusted in the tuna salad depending on how spicy you prefer your salad.
  • The mayonnaise in the salmon salad can be skipped to make it lighter. But you might want to add just a little dijon mustard instead in that case.
  • Cook the eggs according to how you prefer your boiled eggs. For this sandwich I prefer a full boil yolk so it doesn’t get too runny.
  • I love to dry roast my bread before topping it. You can also use a bread roaster or the oven. But it can also be served cold and not roasted.
