Japanese-style salmon and avocado salad : A low carb recipe

Doesn’t this rainbow coloured salad look good, it tastes good too 😋 Flaky salmon tossed with creamy avocado, crunchy veggies and finished off with a drizzle of punchy ginger and soy dressing. I hope you may try it.


Ingredients
Serves Four
1 tbsp oil
500g boneless half salmon side, skin-on
2 avocados, cut into chunks
240g radishes, topped and quartered
bunch spring onions (scallions), sliced
85g watercress
2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
For the dressing
25g piece fresh ginger, finely grated
5 tbsp lemon juice
1½ tbsp soy sauce
1½ tbsp sesame oil
Method

1. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the salmon, skin-side down, and cook for 4-5 mins. Turn and cook for a further 3 mins, or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate or board and remove and discard the skin. Flake the fish into large chunks.
2. Meanwhile, combine the dressing ingredients in a jug. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, toss the avocado, radish, spring onion and watercress.
4. Divide the salad mixture and flaked salmon between 4 bowls. Drizzle over the dressing and top with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds.

5. Enjoy …
