Cooking Lab - Pan Seared Salmon Sandwich with Mushroom Pate

This pan-seared salmon sandwich on sourdough is one of my favorites. It tastes smoky, tangy and makes a great quick meal. With a healthy portion of omega 3 salmon which is essential for good health. 

Grilling the salmon makes it moist and tender. Top with a healthy dose of mixed salad and a splash of vegetarian pate, It can't get any better than this.
