Simple Roast Salmon Salad with Tahini Dressing

posted on: March 18, 2013

Last week I was lucky to buy a huge piece of wonderful farmer salmon, so fresh and flavorful and... healthy pink - I just couldn't resist it!

And now I would love to share with you what I call "the ideal dinner". Greens, proteins and a lovely dressing. Perfect!

Simple Roast Salmon Salad with Tahini Dressing

Ingredients (serves 2):

2 x 200 g salmon pieces (try to buy farmer salmon, the difference is just huge!)
2 big handfuls of your favourite greens (I took arugula and leeks)
good quality olive oil and sea salt

For tahini dressing:

3 teaspoons tahini paste
3 teaspoons water
1 garlic clove
a lemon for squeezing
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Brush your salmon with a little olive oil and rub it with paprika and sea salt. Place the pieces on a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, it should be enough.

For the dressing finely chop a clove of garlic, take 3 teaspoons tahini paste, 3 teaspoons water, squeeze a little bit of lemon juice, add a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well. Taste it and adjust the quantity of lemon juice and salt if necessary. Play with the taste until you get what you like. For me usually work even quantities of tahini paste, water and lemon juice and about half of teaspoon salt but it's all to personal taste.

Serve your salmon over a light green salad, add segments of lemon and top with this wonderful tahini dressing. This is a perfect evening meal!

Bon Appétit!
