It’s nice to eat a big sandwich out in the sun. And if you get to have one while sitting on the side of a dock, even better. Fishermen’s is a deli right on the Salmon Bay Marina, and they indeed make excellent sandwiches. It might seem refreshing to order a cold pastrami or chicken-bacon-havarti (both great choices), but what you really want is the Corleone or the king salmon melt.
The king salmon melt is the best sandwich here, involving flaky mashed pink fish pressed between slices of wheat bread with cheddar, dijonaise, and pickles. Sauce, salmon, and pickle juices combine to make a creamy salad-like spread, and the entire thing is one of the very few examples where seafood and cheese can not only work together, but thrive together.
And if you're not in a fish kind of mood, the Corleone is a toasty-hot baguette filled with Italian meats like ham and capicola, smoked gouda, chopped cherry peppers, and a dijon mayo. It's perfect if you're in a pork kind of mood, or perhaps wanted to cosplay as Tony Soprano for the afternoon.
