Ingredients

Ingredients

1 T. extra virgin olive oil
4 6-oz. Alaskan wild-caught salmon filets
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 c. mixed salad greens
1 c. cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 medium English cucumber, peeled, cut in half and seeded
4-5 fresh dill sprigs, roughly chopped

¼ c. fresh mint leaves, chopped
¼ c. fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 T. Dijon mustard
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1 fresh lemon, cut into wedges

For garnish:
1 fresh lemon, cut into slices
2 sprigs fresh dill


Instructions

Directions

Preheat the olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Season the salmon with some salt and pepper on both sides and place skin-side down in the hot pan. Sear for 3 - 4 minutes before carefully flipping the filets. Cook for another 3-4 minutes before removing from heat.


In the meantime, combine the mixed salad greens, tomatoes, cucumber, and fresh herbs in a large bowl and toss to combine. Set aside.

 

To make the dressing, whisk the Dijon mustard, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar in a small glass bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Pour dressing over the salad and toss to combine.

 


To serve, season the salmon with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a few dill sprigs. Serve with herb salad and enjoy!

Notes

Tip: Sauté the salmon for 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or up to 5 minutes on each side for well done. Total cooking time will vary depending on thickness of the filets.
