Salmon Salad with Spinach & Brussels

chicken & seafood recipes May 08, 2019
Meal prep at it's finest! This salad is super quick to throw together for a busy weekday lunch or dinner. It's a staple in my weekly menu and never disappoints! Be sure to get Wild-Caught Salmon so you're consuming beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and astaxanthin — the potent antioxidant pigment that accounts for their red-orange flesh. Stay away from farm-raised salmon!

Ingredients

For the Salad:

  • 1 pound brussel sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning, divided
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt divided
  • 4 Wild-Caught Salmon Fillets
  • 4 cups baby spinach

For the Garlic Parsley Dressing

  • 1 cup avocado oil or light olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

For the Salad:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • Rinse and cut brussel sprouts into quarters and lay on baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and toss to combine.
  • Season brussels with 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare salmon fillets by drizzling with remaining oil and seasoning with remaining lemon pepper seasoning and salt.
  • Once the brussels have cooked for 15 minutes, remove pan from oven. Carefully move brussels around to form 4 "pockets" on the pan.
  • Place salmon fillets in the "pockets" and return to oven, cooking for another 15 to 20 minutes or until salmon is cooked through and brussels are tender.
  • While salmon and brussels are cooking, prepare the Garlic Parsley Dressing.
  • To assemble, layer 2 cups of spinach on a plate, top with 1/4 of the brussels, 1 filet of salmon, and drizzle with dressing. Enjoy!

For the Garlic Parsley Dressing:

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy. Store in refrigerator.
