Instructions

 

Get the dressing ready:

  • Place all of the dressing’s components in a measuring cup or small bowl. Mix until a smooth and velvety dressing comes together.

 

  • To make the dressing, you can use a tiny blender, like a Magic Bullet or Nutribullet.
    Until you’re ready to use it, keep the dressing in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Make the Crispy Salmon:

  • Whisk together the ingredients for the coconut aminos, sesame oil, garlic, and rice vinegar in a small bowl or measuring cup. Set aside until ready to use.

 

  • Remove the salmon from its packaging and place it on a cutting board. Pat off any excess moisture with a paper towel.

  • Chop the salmon into cubes using a sharp knife. If you prefer your salmon skinless, you can cut the skin off and discard it before chopping it. I like leaving the salmon skin on because it adds to the crunchy texture.

 

  • Heat the avocado oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and allow the skillet to heat up for a few minutes.

  • Carefully place the salmon, skin side down, on the hot surface of the skillet. Allow the pieces to cook undisturbed for 2 to 4 minutes before flipping them to another side and cooking for an additional 2 to 4 minutes, until two sides are deeply golden brown.

 

  • Pour the sauce into the skillet and gently swish it around until all of the salmon is exposed to the sauce. Cover the skillet and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes, stirring and flipping occasionally, or until the salmon has cooked through. The FDA considers salmon to be cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 130 degrees Fahrenheit. If you’d like, use a meat thermometer to spot check the fish by inserting the thermometer into the largest pieces. The exact cook time will vary depending on the size of the salmon chunks, their temperature going into the skillet, and your desired level of doneness.

  • Taste the salmon for flavor and add more coconut aminos (or soy sauce), rice vinegar, or a splash of fresh lime juice, and a sprinkle of sea salt to taste.

 

Put the salad together:

  • Chop or grate the salad’s vegetables. Grate the carrots and cabbage using a food processor fitted with the grating attachment.

 

  • To a large mixing bowl, add all the salad ingredients (excluding the cooked salmon). 3. Add as much peanut dressing as you like, tossing to coat everything in the sesame ginger peanut dressing.

  • Arrange the salad onto sizable dishes or bowls and top with the grilled salmon. If preferred, serve with lemon halves so that guests can squeeze fresh lemon juice over the salad.
