Salmon Salad

This is a great way to use salmon. I love the marinade that is used, It would be even better with some passion fruit added to it. Sadly it's not as easy to come by unless you order it online. I've thought about doing this!


Salmon Salad

4-6 salmon fillets, deboned

Marinade:
 
4-6 tablespoons orange juice
salt and white pepper
blackened red fish seasoning
citrus grill seasoning

1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons dill weed {fresh}, chopped
3 scallions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place the salmon on a baking pan and pour orange juice over each fillet. Season with the salt and pepper and the blackened red fish and citrus grill seasonings.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until the salmon is flaking. Once it's done, separate the salmon from it's skin and place in a bowl.
  • Break up the salmon and let cool down.
  • Add in the remainder of the ingredients and mix well.

Condiments:

bread
mayonnaise
tomato, sliced
alfalfa, broccoli or daikon sprouts
feta
lettuce

  • To assemble each sandwich, take a piece of bread and spread some mayonnaise on it, layer with the salad, tomato, sprouts, feta and top with lettuce.

I've got another suggestion for this salmon, take the fillets and leave them as is. Take your bread and toast it, spread hummus over it and add cucumbers, tomato, onion, feta and greek dressing. It's such a great sandwich, one of my favorites that I used to make at work when I lived in Florida.
