Salmon BLT at Neopol Savory Smokery
1309 5th St. NE, (202) 543-1864
It’s easy to find Neopol Savory Smokery in Union Market. Just make like Toucan Sam and follow your nose. The smokery serves an array of sandwiches, but the salmon BLT is top of the line with its house-smoked Duroc bacon, thick flaked salmon, greens, tomato, red onion, and lemon-dill aioli ($9.95). Unlike thinly shaved lox, this sandwich calls for a whole salmon filet that’s been smoked using apple and cherry wood, so you really have something to bite into that will satisfy your hunger for the rest of the day.
