  • 2-3 slices of tomato
  • 2-3 leaves of romaine lettuce
  • 3-4 slices of cucumber
  • salt & pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Lemon Juice

  • Place the romaine and the cucumber in the fridge for a few minutes, this enhanced the crunchiness.
  • Slice the tomato, the cucumber and cut the romaine so it fits nicely on the bun (use the lighter part and discard the dark green part of the leaves).
  • Spray a grill pan with a little extra virgin olive oil, medium-high heat.
  • Season the salmon or chicken with salt & pepper& lemon juice place in the grill pan, skin side down. Grill for about 3-4 minutes, flip over, grill for another 2-3 minutes (depending on thickness) Chicken will take a little longer.
  • In the meantime toast the bun in an oven or toaster oven.
  • Arrange everything on the bun, tomato first, then romaine, then fish or chicken and cucumber.
  • This can be served with a dipping sauce, like balsamic yoghurt, or a light yoghurt-cocktail sauce, for the chicken honey mustard.
