CITRUS GLAZED SALMON SALAD


Comforting soups and stews are a great way to warm up over the fall and winter months, but as the dreary weather drags on I find myself craving something lighter and brighter.


The most refreshing fruits are in season during the darkest and coldest time of the year and the perfect ingredient to turn to when longing for warmer days. This citrus salmon salad hints of spring while using the best in season winter produce.

You can serve citrus salmon for dinner one night and use the leftovers the next day as a base for the salad. Or, make the salmon strictly for the purpose of serving a light dinner.

Gather your ingredients

for the salmon 1 salmon filet, 2 oranges (1 zested and juiced, 1 thinly sliced), 2 tablespoons dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/4 teaspoon dried tumeric, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon, salt and pepper.

for the salad Assorted greens (you can add shaved brussel sprouts, endive, kale and/or collard greens to use more in season produce), pecans, 1 segmented orange, 1 carrot shaved into ribbons, 2 scallions sliced on the diagonal


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk the orange zest, orange juice, honey, mustard, turmeric, salt and pepper to make citrus glaze.

Pour half the glaze over salmon and sprinkle with dried tarragon, reserve other half. Top with thinly sliced orange.


Place in preheated oven and bake until it easily flakes when poked with a fork through the thickest part. About 10-15 minutes.


Whisk olive oil into reserved glaze to make citrus honey mustard salad dressing. 

Prepare your salad, tossing greens with the citrus honey mustard dressing and topping with carrots, scallions, pecans, orange segments and baked salmon.
