Recipe

Serves 2

 

Ingredients
  • 2 salmon darns
  • 2 Avocados
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • 1 tomato
  • Small cucumber
  • 1/4 Red Onion
  • Lemon + Lime
  • Coriander (cilantro)
  • Olive Oil
  • Apple cider vinegar

 

Instructions

For the Salmon

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F/191°C.
  • Take 2 salmon darns and place on aluminum foil in a baking tray.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and dried dill weed. Place a lemon slice on top.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 20 – 25 minutes, depending on how well cooked you prefer it.

 

For the Salad

  • While the salmon is baking, make the salad.
  • Dice a little cucumber, tomato, and iceberg lettuce.
  • Finely dice 2 slices of red onion, and a few sprigs of coriander (cilantro).
  • Finally,  cut 2 ripe avocados into large chunks.

 

For the Dressing

  • Mix 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
  • Add a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
  • Stir in the juice of a fresh lemon quarter and fresh lime quarter.

 

Combine the salad and dressing in a bowl and mix until the avocado is softening – creating a thick style salad. I like to pack some of the mix into a small round or square bowl, then turn upside down on a plate to serve. Pop the salmon on the plate and you’re all set!

 

Enjoy,
