  • Two 5-ounce wild salmon fillets, skin on or 2-6 ounce cans of wild salmon*
  • 1 small lemon—cut into ½-inch slices
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups baby romaine or mixed baby greens—rinsed
  • 1 cup Napa cabbage—rinsed and thinly shredded
  • 2 green onions—thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot—shaved and diced
  • 1 Persian cucumber—thinly sliced in rounds
  • 1 sheet of Nori seaweed—cut into small pieces (optional)
  • 1 recipe for Lemon miso dressing—make while cooking the salmon

    For the Lemon Miso Dressing
  • Makes around 1 cup
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons fresh peeled ginger—grated
  • 1 small organic lemon—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


  1. Serves 2 Entrée Salads
  2. To make the salad:
  3. 1. 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.
  4. 2. Set salmon aside at room temperature for around 15 minutes while you preheat the oven at 250 ̊ F (120 ̊ C).
  5. 3. 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.
  6. 4. 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.
  7. 5. Place lettuce on plates and top with all the remaining salad ingredients. Drizzle with lemon miso dressing and enjoy!
  8. Lemon Miso Dressing
  9. Makes around 1 cup
  10. 1. 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.
  11. 2. 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.
