Maple Asian Salmon Salad

I swear I eat other things other than salmon, but when the hubby is working for dinner it’s easy to make a quick salmon recipe.  This one takes the cake because it’s healthy and delicious.  Plus, it looks pretty!  So yummy!
Salmon fillet
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
Spinach leaves
Red pepper julienned
Zucchini sliced
Grape tomatoes
Slivered Almonds
Mix the soy sauce, maple syrup, sesame oil and grated fresh ginger for a quick marinade for the salmon.  Submerge the salmon in the marinade.  Spray the grill with cooking spray and place the salmon on the grill.  Cook for about 8 minutes brushing with the marinade throughout the cooking time.  While the salmon is cooking, mix the ingredients for the dressing.  Prepare the salad with the desired vegetables.  I would have added julienned carrots and sliced mushrooms if I had them in the house, but I used what was available to me.  Once the salmon is done, break it apart and place it on top of the salad.  Add the dressing over the top.
One quick tip is to keep your fresh ginger in the freezer after the first time you use it.  It’s much easier to grate this way and it keeps for months!

    We are salmon lovers as well, and I love salad in the summer. Grilling, too. It’s healthier and doesn’t heat up the house!
