Cook the Book Maggie Mariolis 4 comments

Kimberley Hasselbrink's eye-catching bahn mi from her new cookbook, Vibrant Food is super-appealing: she uses fish-sauce-marinated salmon instead of traditional pork, which lightens the sandwich while still providing a touch of fatty richness. It's a sandwich I can see myself making many more times this summer. More

J. Kenji López-Alt 29 comments

Bánh mì with its crisp, moist vegetable filling and delicate-crusted bread can't sit for too long before it starts to lose quality. But the folks behind the sandwich counter at the Tien Hung Oriental Foods market in Orlando's ViMi district (one of the finest Vietnamese food scenes in the country) seem to know this and have come up with an ingenious workaround: rather than selling the 100% assembled sandwiches, they'll give 'em to you as DIY kit.

Sandwiched: Canned Sardine Banh Mi

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 2 comments

Sardine banh mis are usually made with canned sardines packed in a spicy tomato sauce. The rich, meaty flavor of sardines along with the spice and tang from the tomato sauce can lift a baguette in ways that other fillings can't. And since canned sardines are used, this particular type of Vietnamese sandwich is a cinch to make at home. More
