Salmon sandwiches with spicy apricot sauce

Preparation time: 5–10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

Salmon sandwiches with spicy apricot sauce

Nonstick cooking spray
Aluminum foil
1 pound skinless Atlantic salmon, cut into 4 square fillets
1 small lemon
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 98% fat-free light wheat sandwich buns
4 lettuce leaves (leaf lettuce)
4 tablespoons low-sugar apricot preserves
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce (Asian style)

Heat indoor or outdoor grill. Spray nonstick cooking spray on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the four fillets. Place fillets on foil and sprinkle with juice of the lemon and black pepper. Grill on foil approximately 5 minutes on each side until cooked through (flesh bounces back when pressed lightly, and juices are milky). Toast buns on grill or use a toaster. Place a lettuce leaf on each of the bottom halves of the buns, then top with one salmon fillet. In a small bowl, stir together apricot preserves and sweet chili sauce, then spoon approximately 1 heaping tablespoon onto each salmon fillet; add the top half of each bun to complete.
