The post is in partnership with Sitka Salmon Shares. Opinions expressed and my Asian Inspired Cold Salmon Salad Recipe are that of my own.
Trying to keep up with those New Years Resolutions as well planning meals for Lent? Well if you are facing the same challenges as me, then you are also on the look out for ways to get more seafood into your family’s diet.
Plus lets be honest, the more salad and greens we can add to our meals, the better.
Thanks to Sitka Salmon Shares, getting fresh and delicious seafood just got even easier. To put this to the test, I was sent a media sample box of their freshly frozen fish. Featuring both Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon and Black Bass, this collection of Alaskan Seafood comes delivered to your doorstep frozen and ready to be incorporated into your everyday dishes or the recipes included in the box.
I decided to try out the fish by defrosting a piece of Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon in my fridge over night, and incorporating it into a Asian Inspired Cold Salmon Salad Recipe.
If you would like to recreate this dish, details are below.
Asian Inspired Cold Salmon Salad Recipe
4 ounces of Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon
2 Cups of American Blend Salad
1/2 Cup of Chow Mein Noodles
1 4oz No Sugar Added Mandarin Oranges
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp of Soysauce
1 Tbsp of White Wine Vinegar
In advance, bake the Salmon plain at 350 degrees for at least 15 minutes or until it is cooked through. Then, wrap this up and place in the fridge to cool.
Next up, drain the juice from the oranges into a bowl. This will yield approximately 1/4 Cup of Mandarin Orange Juice.
Then add the White Wine Vinegar, Soy Sauce, and Olive Oil to the juice and combine. This will be the dressing.
Next, place 2 cups of Salad in a bowl and add the chilled Salmon on top. (I sliced my piece in half since it was closer to 8 ounces and used the other piece the next day)
To finish, add the mandarin oranges, chow mein noodles, and the dressing. Serve Immediately. Tip: Only pour over half the dressing in the beginning. You may decide that you prefer the salad less saturated.

🏋️♀️ So, I am doing something special for myself and it started with me going back to the gym in February and setting a weightloss goal each week. In addition, since the beginning of the year I have been careful when it comes to making better meal choices and trying to cut out that after dinner snack. (Already put in an hour of exercise today! 🎉) . . . 🥬 One of my other 2020 health goals has been to add in more seafood and greens. Thanks to @sitkasalmonshares for sending me this sample box to review, my plan is to create a Simple Salmon Salad this week for my lunch. I am looking forward to sharing the recipe and taste testing their Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon! 👉Swipe to see what is inside. . . . So do you have a health goal for this year?
