Twin Salmon Salads: Asian & Mediterranean
 
Created and presented by Rebecca Katz

Asian Salmon Salad
This dish gets its zesty flavor from ginger, lime, sesame oil, and scallions. It takes only about five minutes to prepare and makes a healthy, tasty, portable lunch! Makes about 1 cup.
Serves 4
 
1 can Vital Choice Wild Red sockeye salmon (7.5 oz "traditional" style with edible skin and bones, or 6 oz skinless-boneless sockeye)
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped scallions, green parts only
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Drain the salmon in a fine-mesh strainer and remove any bones (if using "traditional" style). Place the salmon in a small bowl and use a fork to break it up.
  • Add the ginger, lime juice, scallions, salt, and sesame oil. Mix well and taste. You may want to add a pinch of salt or a squeeze of lime.
  • Serve on top of salad greens, sesame rice crackers, dark pumpernickel bread, or rye bread.
