Blackened Salmon Po' Boy

From: EatingWell

Mashed avocado mixed with reduced-fat mayo creates a cool, creamy spread--the perfect counterpoint to the spicy salmon and peppery arugula in this sandwich. Catfish is another tasty choice.

Servings: 2 servings
Prep: 25 mins
Total: 25 mins
Rated : Not yet rated
1/2   small avocado, pitted (see Tips for Two)
1 tablespoon  reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon  blackening or Cajun seasoning
8 ounces  salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 2 portions
2   crusty whole-wheat rolls, split and toasted
1 cup  arugula
1   plum tomato, thinly sliced
1/4 cup  thinly sliced red onion
1. Preheat grill to high. Oil grill rack (see Tip).
2. Mash together avocado and mayonnaise in a small bowl with a fork.
3. Rub blackening (or Cajun) seasoning on both sides of salmon. Grill until just cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
4. To assemble the sandwiches, spread the avocado mixture on the bottom halves of each roll. Top with the salmon, arugula, tomato and onion.
Tips for Two: Although browning is inevitable, less browning is possible if you keep the pit in the avocado half you're storing and wrap it tightly in plastic wrap. Mash with reduced-fat mayonnaise and use as a sandwich spread; dice and sprinkle on top of scrambled eggs; toss in salad.
Tip: To oil the grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray.
