For the Lemon Miso Dressing
- 2 tablespoons honey raw
- 2 teaspoons ginger fresh peeled, grated
- 1 lemon small, organic, peel, use flesh and juice from lemon
- 2 tablespoons white miso non-genetically modified
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon filtered water
To Make the Salad
- If you purchased fresh salmon fillets remove any pin bones and place salmon fillets skin side down on top of lemon slices in a baking sheet lined with parchment or lightly greased. Drizzle salmon with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season to taste with unrefined sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.
- Set salmon aside at room temperature for around 15 minutes while you preheat the oven at 250 ̊ F (120 ̊ C).
- Once oven preheats place salmon in oven and cook for 25-30 minutes depending on thickness of fish. To check doneness of fish stick a knife in center of the fillets and remove. Fish is done when knife slides out easily. The fish will still look slightly translucent in color but it is done.
- Remove fish and cool. Remove fillets from skin and break into pieces. If using canned salmon, drain and flake into small chunks. Set aside while you assemble the salad.
- Place lettuce on plates and top with all the remaining salad ingredients. Drizzle with lemon miso dressing and enjoy!
To Make Lemon Miso Dressing
- Makes around 1 cup.
- Add all ingredients for dressing in blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Set aside the dressing while you put together the salad.
- Store leftover dressing in glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Hi I am actually researching recipes for a yacht trip my sister, sevral others, and myself are going to make. I am not sure if miso will be around so I was wondering if we cannot find it is there an alternative we can do?
Missy, Sounds like fun!!! The closest substitute would be soy sauce and tahini combined.
