I have mentioned before that I like seafood and salmon is one of my favorites. It is hard not to like seafood when you live in Florida. There is so much seafood to enjoy. I made this for a quick lunch. The salmon literally took minutes to prepare.
- Thai Dressing (see website)
- 2 salmon filets, skinned
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- pinch of sea salt and pepper
- 1 romaine heart,chopped, divided
- 1/2 c cherry tomatoes, quartered, divided
- 2 tbsp slice almonds, toasted, divided
- 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped, divided
Prepare Thai Dressing if you do not have any on hand. Prepare plates with a bed of lettuce.
Pat dry salmon filets with paper towels. Season both sides of filet with salt and pepper. Melt coconut oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Place show side (the side that you want to look at when it is on your plate) down. Leave salmon filet alone and let it get a pretty seared color. This will only take 3-5 minutes. Turnover filet and only cook it for a bout 1 minute. That is all it takes to have a perfectly cooked salmon filet.
Place cooked salmon filet on top of greens. Scatter tomatoes on greens. Sprinkle cilantro and toasted almonds on top of salad.
I like to put the dressing on the side. It lets you control the amount you want to use on your salad. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
