“This is a great recipe for when a light flavourful meal is what you want. It's quick & easy enough for weekday meals and nice enough for company. It's a recipe I adapted from one found in the Costco Connection by Karen MacNeil.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a sharp knife, cut the salmon filet into 8 equal strips. Pat dry with paper towel and lay in a large glass rectangular baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl combine ginger, garlic powder & cayenne pepper. Stir to mix. Add soy sauce, hot sauce and sesame oil. Mix well.
  3. Brush all the sauce onto each side of each strip of salmon. Cover with plastic wrap and leave in fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat oven to 375°F Remove plastic wrap and recover with tinfoil. Cook salmon for 30 minutes or until opaque and flakes with fork.
  5. Right before salmon is done, slice cherry tomatoes in half and mix in large bowl with salad greens.
  6. Toss all vinaigrette ingredients in a jar and shake well. **You can use more olive oil if you like.
  7. Drizzle small amounts of vinaigrette over salad and toss well until satisfied with covering. Set aside remaining dressing.
  8. Divide salad among 4 plates and top each serving with 2 strips of salmon. Drizzle with a little bit of remaining vinaigrette just before serving.
  9. Serve with an 8 or 12 grain baguette and a nice Pinot Grigio.
  10. Note: this salad is also nice topped with chopped plain peanuts or pine nuts.
  11. ** Preparation time does not include marinating time.
