Sesame Salmon Salad

Sesame Salmon Salad

I’ve got a great summer salad for you today. It is light but still substantial enough to be a main course. For the dressing I came up with a sesame-ginger combo whose flavor stays in the background but still ties the different salad components together nicely.

This is so far my favorite Spice Train recipe, if you make it, let me know what you think!

  • one 8-ounce salmon fillet
  • 4-6 fresh strawberries



  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Brush the salmon with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake salmon in a baking dish until cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes.

      Thank you, Maggie! I was surprised at how well the different flavors came together. I hadn’t originally planned on strawberries but they looked really good in the store so I put them in. :-)
