Smoked Salmon Reuben Panini

Start to finish: 30 minutes (15 minutes active)

Servings: 4



Ingredients:



¼ cup low-fat mayonnaise

2 tablespoons chili sauce (the kind served with shrimp cocktail)

2 tablespoons finely chopped dill pickle

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

8 slices rye bread

4 ounces thinly sliced Gruyere, fontina or Swiss cheese

4 ounces thinly sliced smoked salmon

14½-ounce can sauerkraut, drained, rinsed and gently squeezed to remove excess liquid

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil



Method:



In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, pickle and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread one side of each slice of bread with some of the dressing. Arrange half of the cheese on 4 of the slices. Divide the salmon, sauerkraut and remaining cheese among the cheese-topped slices of bread and top each with one of the remaining bread slices, spread side down.

In a large skillet over medium, heat the oil until hot. Add the sandwiches and something heavy (such as a cast iron skillet, flat saucepan lid, or heat-safe plate and a weight such as a can of food) to firmly press the sandwiches down. Cook for 6 minutes per side, or until golden and the cheese has melted.
