Asian Citrus Salmon Salad

In addition to the sweet and salty flavors of the citrus, honey and soy sauce, garlic and ginger there is sesame oil and almonds. and the salmon rests on a bed of mixed greens, oranges, lemons, limes and Asian dressing.  All flavors come together to make the most moist, flavorful, delicious Asian Citrus Salmon Salad that you have ever eaten.

Make the marinate dressing and divide it in half.  Marinate the salmon in half of the mixture and save the other half for the salad dressing.

This salmon was very moist.   Five things come together to make salmon moist, delicious and with melt in your mouth goodness.  The requirements for a moist piece of salmon are:

Buy the best quality salmon possible.  I prefer wild caught salmon but it is not always available.  Many farm raised  salmon are also very good.

Salmon with more fat in it, that is more marbling will be better tasting.

Purchase a piece that is at least 1 inch thick. The thicker the better.

Marinate with a delicious combination of flavors like this Asian citrus marinate.

Grill the salmon for about 5 minutes on each side.  Salmon will be more moist if cooked on the rare to medium rare  but if you only like it well done then grill for a few minutes longer on each side.

After marinating the salmon in the flavorful and delicious dressing, grill it in a grill pan.  I really needed new cookware and while watching HSN one night I ended up purchasing this one.  I actually purchased the whole set of cookware in red. Here is another version of the Curtis Stone grill pan.   Ended up loving them so much that I purchased another set for my daughter in turquoise.   I love the grill pan.

If you want a simple, moist, flavorful salmon salad recipe then this Asian Citrus Salmon Salad is the one that will make your taste buds happy!
