I was at a loss with what to cook for dinner tonight night so I grabbed a tin of wild smoked salmon from my pantry (I always keep a stash handy) and this is what I came up with:
- Tinned wild salmon (in brine as opposed to oil which tend to be rancid or toxic)
- Rocket or lettuce
- Snow peas
- Cucumber, cut on the diagonal
- Avocado, cut into chunks
- Red capsicum
- Shallots, thinly sliced
- Sesame seeds (preferably activated to remove phytates found in all seeds)
- Nori seaweed, cut into thin strips with scissors approx 2cm in length
- Cracked pepper
Assemble vegetables on plate or bowl. Break up salmon into chunks (removing central bony spine and drained of brine) and add to plate. Drizzle Miso Dressing (refer to recipe below) over salad. Garnish with a scattering of sesame seeds and nori strips. Season with cracked pepper. (Additional salt is not necessary if Miso Dressing is used).
Variations: instead of tinned wild salmon, you could use cooked or raw fresh wild salmon or wild smoked salmon or rare sliced lamb or beef.
Miso Dressing Ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon tamari (wheat free soy sauce)
- 2 teaspoons (1/2 tablespoon) miso paste
Blend ingredients together with hand held blender until well mixed.
I teamed all this with a cup of home-made fish broth with some butter blended through it to drink as entree.
Tip: avoid farmed fish and only consume wild fish. Why? Farmed fish are farmed in unnaturally crowded conditions ("hatcheries") which breed illness and disease and are fed a very unnatural diet including soy pellets, fire retardants (can you believe it?!) and (in the case of farmed salmon) colour dyes. Sick fish = sick humans who eat the fish. Check on the tins that you buy that it says "wild" salmon. Tinned wild salmon can be purchased in supermarkets. When in a fish shop simply ask which fish are wild and which are farmed. Here's another tip: when in a fish shop or restaurant be aware that all salmon and ocean trout in Australia is farmed other than the salmon you can buy from The Canadian Way. To place an order with The Canadian Way simply go online or call David directly (and tell him I referred you) and he home delivers. His salmon is also sold at Wholefoods House, Bondi Wholefoods and GRUB. No- I don't get any commission from David....though maybe I should ;-)
