Grilled Salmon Salad with Baby Kale and Spinach Greens and Strawberries

The new year calls for resolutions and healthy choices and me being such a grilling fanatic decided to create this taste salad using fresh wild caught Alaska salmon paired with baby kale greens, baby spinach, red onion rounds and fresh strawberries. Grilling for me is a year round thing either grilling inside or outdoors depending on the weather. Salmon is a fish that is rich in vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids , considered a very healthy option and a good source of protein. Salmon is firm and buttery and is it great for grilling, so let’s cook some grilled salmon salad!

Wild Caught Salmon Fillets #ABRecipes

Wild Caught Salmon Fillets


  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of dried ground garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground dill
  • 4 cups of baby kale and spinach mix
  • 1/2 red onion cut in rounds
  • 2 yellow lemons cut in rounds
  • 8 fresh strawberries cut in halves
  • 1 cup of fresh chopped cilantro

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground pepper

Preparation Time: 30 minutes. Serves 4 guests. Cost per person $4.00 dollars depending on the price of the ingredients at your local supermarket. You will need a grilling pan, a mixing bowl, cutting board, knife, spoons and four salad plates.

Place the salmon fillets in a bowl and add the olive oil, cover well, then add the condiments this is the ground garlic, the pepper and the salt. Season on both sides. Place your grilling skillet on the stove and let get hot. Place the salmon fillets facing down, this is grill first the side that has the skin. This will allow for proper cooking and to avoid the salmon get dry. When the skin get the grilling marks turn the fillet and grill the other side for 3-4 minutes maximum. A good salmon is the one that is flaky so try not to over cook. When the salmon fillets are ready placed them in a serving plate. preferably you will be serving those warm.

Then prepare the dressing using a clean bowl or a salad dressing bottle  combining all ingredients and stirring or shaking until getting an emulsion. The emulsion is when the olive oil and the lemon juice marry together. This dressing is very simple and will have enough acidity to go perfect with the fresh greens and the grilled salmon.
