Grilled Salmon Salad with Lemon dressing


I like meals like this one ,healthy, yummy and without the carbs. Not that I don’t like carbs its just there is too much of them every where.Plus, helps you to be in shape( minus the bacon ,prob.) This salad is full of lemon flavor which is a great combination to slightly sweet and salty salmon fillets.For my salad I used Wild Sockeye salmon, I prefer Atlantic salmon,but finding «wild» one been a problem for me.
6 Salmon fillets:
3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley ( dry OK too)
2 leaves fresh basil
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey

Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Marinade for at least 30 minutes.
Grill the fillets.

Lemon salad dressing:
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper cup olive oil
1/3 cup Olive oil

Mix everything in a blender.

5 oz. Green salad like Fresh Herb mix,Spring mix,etz.
15 cherry tomatoes halved
½ red onion thinly sliced
4-5 slices of bacon (cooked any way you like, I grilled it) crumbled
Mix salad with dressing.transfer on to a serving plate and place grilled salmon on top. Enjoy


  1. Great looking salmon marinade. Did you try trout before? I just bought a big fillet yesterday so I'm looking forward to trying that. The taste is so much more delicate than salmon so I'm looking forward to trying something similar to this on my trout!

  2. Thank you Charles. Yes I tried trout before and I love it.but again it's farmed.Otherwise I think it will be great and taste will be more delicate.
