For all my life, I’ve always been a huge sucker for BLT sandwiches. I could still remember heading to the deli down the street from my elementary school, sitting behind the counters, and watching the guy make the sandwich. He always had this stash of super crisp bacon hidden away and he’d always whip it out during sandwich-making time. I’d think about stealing that tray of what seemed like an infinite amount of bacon but then again, I could never come back to the store for his awesome BLT sandwiches.

Little did I know that more awesomeness existed, like these salmon BLT sliders.

I mean BLT sandwiches are amazing in and of itself, but then think about adding a freshly baked salmon along with a liberal spread of chipotle mayo. Yeah, you have something 100x better, right? Jason and I loved this so much that I actually made this twice in the span of 2 weeks! The second time around we added some pickled jalapenos and extra bacon, which just tipped the scale to absolute perfection. I’ll be sure to make these again, and perhaps add some avocado and a fried egg, that is if space permits on these little babies!

So here’s how you make these sliders:

Let’s start by broiling our salmon. We’ll broil for about 5 minutes first,

then flip them,

and broil for an additional 5 minutes.

While that’s going in the oven, let’s crisp up some bacon.

Then we’ll toast some bread.

Now let’s make the chipotle mayo. It’s a bit complex so pay attention guys.

Take a bowl, add some mayo and adobo sauce, and give it a good stir. So yeah, I lied. Super easy, super simple, but oh-so-freaking-tasty. I could put this on everything.

Go ahead and put a liberal amount of this chipotle mayo on your slider buns. You won’t regret it.

  1. Can these be served cold? I’m looking for a salmon slider recipe as a non-meat slider option for a party of 40. I’m serving pulled chicken out of a crock pot. Would this work to make ahead or do you have any other suggestions?

  2. These were DELICIOUS!!  I made these for lunch and my 13 year old ate his in record time.  I had 3…but I was super hungry and I just couldn’t get enough of the flavors.  These will be in steady rotation for my weekly menus.  Can’t say enough how tasty these were and they were beyond easy and fast to assemble and with 5 kids, I need quick.

  3. We have a mayo/cream cheese/sour cream allergy/sensitivity….
    Has anyone tried Greek yogurt or have an other option?
    Thank you!!!!!

  4. Do you leave the skin on the salmon?

  5. Apparently I skimmed over the directions and missed the chili part and thought it was just adobo sauce. Read it more closely as I was making it and figured it out. Hands down, one of the best dishes ever. The husband and kids didn’t leave a crumb behind. Thank you for the amazing recipe!

  6. I can’t wait to make this!! I’m going to do sandwich sized for dinner though….extra amounts of salmon and bacon…yes please!! One question: Do you recommend using only the adobo sauce and not the Chili’s? If yes then do you have any ideas for what to do with the unused Chili’s? I’d hate to see them go to waste.

    • I use both the adobo sauce and peppers. As for the leftover peppers, I throw them in a food processor and use it with the leftover sauce.

  7. this recipe is delicious and very simple. I feel like a chef!

  8. Tried this recipe last night and was sooooo soooooo soooooo good! I sent my sister to the store for the slider buns as I was prepping and she came back with Asiago cheese bagels from Panera! But they worked anyway. The key to all of this, I think, is the mayo. I’ve had a couple of cans of the adobo in my pantry just waiting for a recipe like this. I’m thinking that mayo will now be a standard. That combo along with the salmon and the rest of the BLT? So.many.yums!!!!

  9. I’m trying these tonight but have a question. Will the Chipotle mayo be spicy or more smoky with that amount of the adobo sauce?

  10. Living in Alaska we have a freezer full of salmon! Because of this, I am always on the hunt for some other way to fix other than my brown sugar marinade. My friend directed me to this recipe because she and her husband tried it and couldn’t get enough. I can’t wait to try this for Sunday dinner tomorrow!

  11. These look great! Way easier than they appear! And I LOVE a good chipotle mayo. Yum!

  12. This looks great, but something about this website cause my computer(s) to freeze up. Too bad, looks like there’s lots of good stuff here.
