Bonus: leftover Green Goddess Dressing doubles as a dip and spread for wraps, sandwiches, burgers and more!
- 1 fillet uncooked wild caught salmon (about 130-140g raw weight)
- 1 tsp olive oil + 1/4 tsp minced garlic + sea salt + black pepper
- 2 big handfuls mixed baby greens
- 2-3 radishes, thinly sliced
- 1 boiled egg, peeled + slices
- 1/2 cup cucumber slices or ribbons
- 2 tbsp loosely packed fresh dill
- sliced avocado, sprouts and lemon slices, to garnish
For the green goddess dressing:
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 2 tbsp each extra virgin olive oil, minced shallot, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice
- 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh parsley and dill (or whatever herb combo you like)
- generous pinches of sea salt and black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Make the dressing by blitzing all ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. Transfer to a jar and set aside.
- Place the salmon on the baking sheet. Whisk together the olive oil and garlic. Brush it over the salmon and sprinkle with sea salt + black pepper.
- Arrange a few lemon slices on top of the salmon. Season again, then bake for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare the salad ingredients as directed above. Toss everything except the avocado and garnishes together, squeezing a few lime wedges and a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on top. Then transfer to a serving bowl/plate.
- Switch the oven to its broil setting and let the salmon cook for about 5 more minutes. It should start to darken and get a bit crispy on top.
- Once cooked, plate the salmon on top of the salad. Add avocado, garnishes, and spoon green goddess dressing over top.
