kick-in crispy salmon sandwich

Recipe by

One of my best sandwiches. Salmon and avocado are perfect marriage. Also those work very well with yogurt so I made exotic flavored yogurt sauce. Crispy salmon, tender buttery avocado and sliced almonds are smothered with the sweet spicy (but not too spicy) creamy sauce. To make it more delicious, I picked croissant so this sandwich has nice butter flavor yet not too heavy because of the light yogurt sauce. You would never be tired of this sandwich.
