Salmon, Walnut & Apple Salad
Miss fruit while in your fat-burning days? This little bit of apple will cure that right up! Grating the apple makes the flavor, sweetness and crunch get mixed well throughout without going overboard on carbs. This meal can be whipped up in about 10 minutes.
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil, divided
- 1 (3 to 4oz) wild-caught salmon filet
- Pinch sea salt
- Pinch freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons crushed walnuts
- 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
- 1/4 medium red apple, grated
Add the spinach, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and ½ tablespoon oil to a bowl and toss well. Set aside.
Preheat oven to broil.
Drizzle ½ tablespoon avocado oil into a heavy broiler pan or medium-size iron skillet.
Place salmon skin side down. Squeeze remaining lemon juice on top, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Broil in the oven for 6-8 minutes per inch of thickness. Check after 6 minutes, and either remove or continue cooking until salmon is medium, or to your liking. Let rest for 2 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill the salmon on a BBQ or grill pan.
Add the walnuts and hemp seeds to a small, dry skillet and toast over medium for 2 minutes.
Add the grated apple to the spinach and toss, then plate. Lay salmon on top and sprinkle with the walnuts and hemp seeds.
