Grilled Kvaroy Salmon Po’ Boy

Our PNW take on this traditional Louisiana sub uses grilled Kvaroy salmon served on fluffy French bread. We use Prosser’s spice to blacken the salmon and top it with Nancy’s plain yogurt and Heavenly Fire hot salsa to add a kick of heat to the creamy dressing. Add lettuce and ripened tomatoes for a well-balanced sub.
