This begins a short series of recipes I developed for your Sandwich Press, which is the most underrated cooking appliance in the kitchen. I don’t need a air fryer, a soup maker, a pie maker or a bread maker. I have all of those and they are called ‘the stove’ and ‘the oven’. But, I can’t live without a sandwich press. If you have one at home or at work they can make lunches and dinners so much quicker and easier. Toast your vegetables on there. Toast your meet on there. Or, in this case, make a kick ass wrap for lunch.
I love, love, love smoked salmon. It is one of those special foods that my family had at Christmas time only. So the idea of ‘adulting’ and buying smoked salmon for my lunches feels so luxurious. Salmon is rich in all those healthy fish oils and its a great source of protein. Because smoked salmon is preserved through smoking, I would suggest keeping it as an occasional lunch, rather than an every day occurrence. Every once in a while it can feel like such a treat to have a delicious smoked salmon lunch. Your workmates will be jealous!
