Mexican Grilled Salmon Salad with Avocado Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing

I’m suddenly hooked on salmon salads. They are healthy, filling and perfectly flavorful. Last time I shared a Greek version and this time around I added Mexican flavors. I can’t say which I like better so be sure to try them both! Like I mentioned before you can substitute chicken for the salmon for a cheaper alternative (cooking times will be longer), but I’d definitely recommend trying it with the salmon at least once.

This dressing can also be made as a delicious veggie dip, simply omit the milk/olive oil. If you are looking for an easier dressing you could use this recipe here and just add milk (and a little olive oil if desired) to thin.

You are going to love the way this Avocado Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing pairs with this seasoned and grilled salmon! If you don’t want to do the extra work of getting all the ingredients for the salad you could just eat it as salmon with the dressing then have some sort of rice or something as a side. Or you could have it in tacos, I’m always game for tacos. The salad is a great way though to get a generous serving of veggies in your diet plus it’s perfect for summer! And once you try this healthy avocado dressing you’ll be hooked!

If you haven’t cooked fish before, this is the perfect place to start. Then again, if you have been cooking fish for years, this is still perfect for you.

This 30 minute meal will turn salmon skeptics into salmon lovers and will win a permanent spot on your regular menu. And cleanup is a breeze. You can use that foil to wrap up any leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch, or toss the whole thing right in the garbage – no pan scrubbing required. It’s a busy weeknight cook’s dream.

Salmon and Summer Veggies in Foil

You can never have too many salmon recipes, right? I could eat salmon every day, so now if only they could sell it for the same price as chicken. I have been trying to eat more fish lately, and salmon is definitely my favorite type of fish so it’s almost always my go to choice. I should expand my horizon and broaden my palate and cook with different types of fish like swordfish or tuna, but salmon is just my favorite so I don’t venture out much. Plus I’ve finally gotten my kids to love it.
This salmon is packed with flavor, full of nutritious ingredients, it’s easy to make and clean up is a breeze! I love cooking with ingredients that are in season and we all know this summer everyone will be overflowing with an abundance of zucchini, squash and fresh from the vine tomatoes so why not make a dish that combines all of those? In the past I’ve always thought tomatoes and salmon were such a strange combo (who knows why), then I finally got over that and tried it and I totally love it, as long as things are seasoned right. This is like an Italian spin on salmon in foil and you are totally going to love it! My picky 4 year old couldn’t get enough of it!

  • 2 small zucchini (13 oz) sliced into half moons

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried marjoram

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut 4 sheets of aluminum foil into 17-inch lengths.
  2. Toss zucchini, squash, sliced shallot and garlic together with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste and divide among 4 sheets of foil, placing veggies in center of foil.
  3. Brush salmon fillets with 1 Tbsp of the olive oil, season bottom side with salt and pepper then place one fillet over each layer of veggies on foil. Drizzle lemon juice over salmon and season top with salt and pepper.

SALMON QUINOA CAKES

Moist and fall apart salmon cakes made with fresh roasted salmon and superfood – quinoa. This recipe is an easy way to transform leftover salmon into next day meal! Serve these warm or cold as a sandwich, main course or over a salad.
Salmon cakes or salmon patties are quite possibly the best way to give leftover salmon a second chance. It’s an absolutely different twist on leftovers that I look forward to eating every single time. These cakes are wonderfully easy to make.
Traditional salmon cakes are normally made with breadcrumbs, I basically replaced the breadcrumbs with cooked quinoa, for extra nutrition and texture. The base is just roasted salmon, quinoa, chopped green onions and parsley, mayo, Dijon, paprika, and an egg. All formed into a patty, which are then quickly sautéed in a skillet.
These cakes are slightly crispy on the outside and fall apart moist on the inside. Plus they are filling and are perfect over a simple salad or some roasted vegetables. Shape them into slightly larger patties, and you have some great salmon burgers ready to go. These cakes are also good the next day! Stuff them in a pita pocket with some crunchy lettuce and lunch is ready to go.
Secret to getting these moist and tender? Not overcooking the salmon (super, duper important). I made that mistake the first time I made these. You want the salmon just slightly undercooked. And don’t forget to add all the juices and oils from the pan into your mixture. It’s golden 🙂 Secondly – do not skimp out on the mayo! It adds the necessary fat to make these taste just perfect.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. fresh salmon, skin removed or cooked leftover salmon*
  • 1½ cups cooked quinoa, completely cooled
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. Rub salmon with olive oil and lightly season with salt and pepper. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. You want the salmon just slightly undercooked. Flake with a fork and cool enough to handle.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flaked salmon, quinoa, green onion, parsley, mayonnaise, Dijon, egg, lemon juice, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper as needed.

SWEET CHILI GARLIC GLAZED SALMON

A five star salmon recipe with a delicious sweet chili garlic glaze on top.  The glaze caramelizes the salmon as it broils and will become an instant favorite that you will make again and again!
I am so excited to be an ambassador this year for The Salmon Council. If you have been following the blog, then it is no secret that I love salmon. I love working with companies that I am truly passionate about. Salmon is such an important part of maintaining a healthy diet. February is American Heart Month and it is so important to add Omega 3 fatty acids to your diet. Salmon is perfect for adding in your Omega 3 fatty acids and it is also enriched with protein and Vitamin D. Did you know that adding in salmon to your diet can help to reduce cholesterol and lowers your risk of a heart attack by one third?
Yeah, salmon is awesome. I declare this recipe the BEST salmon glaze ever. I made it three days in a row it is so good! Even if you aren’t a huge salmon fan, start with this recipe. The glaze is so good you won’t be able to get enough.
Sweet Chili, soy sauce, orange marmalade, and garlic all come together to create one amazing glaze.   These beautiful pieces of salmon soak up the marinade and get broiled in the oven.  The marinade caramelizes on top while they are being broiled, creating an amazing crisp flavorful crust on the top.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6 oz) pieces of salmon
  • ¼ cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1½ Tablespoons Orange Marmalade
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons green onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. In a shallow baking dish, combine sweet chili sauce, orange marmalade, and soy sauce. Whisk to combine and add minced garlic and green onions. Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper and place facing down with the skin side up in the dish and allow to marinate for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat the broiler and make sure the oven rack is 5-6 inches down and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Crispy Bourbon Glazed Salmon

I am always looking for new and exciting ways to eat fish.
It has turned out that I’ve made at least one new seafood dish every week for the last month. We love seafood so much and now that the spring is coming, I find myself craving it more and more. If only we lived in an area where fresh seafood was accessible. Pittsburgh… that is not you.
I really don’t discriminate when it comes to seafood. Okay, well I have a hard time actually eating the tentacles when it comes to calamari, but a good bit of breading always helps. When it comes to salmon, I love it two ways: grilled and broiled. When broiled, it develops a crispy, crunchy crust that I absolutely adore. You just can’t beat it!
It’s my go-to way for preparing salmon. Especially because I am afraid of the grill. Perhaps this summer I will set a goal to get more comfortable with the grill? Girl meets grill. Then grill will meet bacon.
When my mom made that romano crusted fish last week, she also baked some store-bought bourbon glazed salmon that left us all less than impressed. But I loved the sound of bourbon glazed salmon and was dead set on creating my own glaze this past weekend.
I was thrilled with the results. Even Mr. How Sweet, who moaned and groaned and refused to try the glaze on it’s own, stating that he “doesn’t eat bourbon” absolutely loved the salmon. And I think that the glaze will be delicious on chicken and shrimp and maybe even… dare I say it? Vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound fresh salmon
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup bourbon
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

directions:

  1. Combine the bourbon, sugar, mustard, garlic, honey, vinegar and worcestershire in a small saucepan and whisk. Heat over high heat and allow it to come to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and let simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until mixture reduces by about half. Pour mixture in a bowl and let sit at room temperature while the salmon cooks. The glaze will thicken a bit at this time.
  2. Preheat the broiler in your oven. Make sure the salmon is dry and season it with the coarse salt and pepper on both sides. Lay it on a non-stick baking sheet. Broil for about 5-6 minutes on each side, until the top develops a crispy crust. If your salmon is very thick, you may need to go a little longer.

Garlic Herb Roasted Salmon

My pre-schooler little G has been doing very well at school and after school programs, and I can’t be prouder and happier. I want to think that it’s all the salmon that I have been feeding him. Well, we all know that salmon is loaded with omega-3 and an excellent source for a child’s cognitive development.
I am just happy that little G loves salmon. In fact, he would ask for salmon as his dinner whenever he has a craving for fish. A few days ago, he asked me to serve salmon with his favorite garlic noodles, and here it is the garlic herb roasted salmon I made for him.
This recipe is literally what it says: garlic, herb (I used Italian parsley), and salmon roasted in an oven. It’s a great Fall/Winter recipe and definitely one of the easiest salmon recipes I have attempted. So easy, completely fuss-free, and I didn’t even have to marinate.
When you have pretty fresh salmon, you don’t need a lot of seasonings or ingredients. Let the natural flavors of salmon shines. A little butter, herb, salt, black pepper, and lemon juice are all you need. Dinner is done in about 20 minutes, and hurray to more brain power for the little ones!

INGREDIENTS :

  • 12 oz salmon fillet, cut into two pieces
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 dashes ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Combine the melted butter, garlic, parsley, salt, cayenne pepper (if using), lemon juice and black pepper together. Stir to combine well.
  3. Arrange the salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Spoon the garlic herb mixture onto the salmon, coat well on the top and sides of the salmon.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes. Dish out and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
