"I have been wanting to make a version of salmon sliders for my blog for a while now, and since a ton of bloggers already have the BLT salmon sliders recipe covered, I decided to go with a version that is a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet. I am a huge fan of Jamaican Jerk spice with salmon. It goes great with the mild tasting fish, but doesn't over power it."
