This dish includes a quick marinade and great sources of healthy fats and protein. Toss it on a bed of raw leafy greens and fresh cucumbers and taste the punch of the delicious salmon!
I think it was hard to determine a title for this recipe there are so many components, all so fresh and bursting with flavor! I learned about hot chili pepper oil by reading some blogs, and I incorporated my own spin on it with marinating the salmon and adding mint and cilantro. This recipe is light and refreshing, definitely a hit for a summer dinner or entertaining friends. I can’t wait to make it again.
The arugula adds a spicy, peppery flavor to accompany the avocado cilantro dressing. The cucumber adds a crisp, fresh finish to the dish. The salmon is the all-star of this dish, and the marinade does not overpower the flavor of the fish. I suggest using Bolthouse Farms Avocado Cilantro dressing to cut down prep time. However, if you’re a wiz in the kitchen and feel that making your own dressing that’s even better. I like this dressing because it’s low in carbs and high in fat.
Salmon is such a great protein, and I recommend incorporating it often if you like fish. It’s full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and may help protect against heart disease. It’s also high in fat– so yay, Keto!
