Ingredients

  • 1 Cedar Bay Applewood with Orange & Ginger Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon Filet (24 ounces)
  • 5 ounces Spring Mix Greens
  • 2 ounces goat cheese crumbled
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup candied pecans
  • 6 large strawberries sliced
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 t. garlic finely ground (about 2 cloves)
  • 1 t. fresh ginger finely ground
  • 1 t. sugar
  • 1 t. pepper
  • Dash of salt
  • 2. T. lemon juice
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinaigrette
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

Salad Dressing:

  • Grate garlic and ginger with a fine grater or zester, place in a small mason jar or similar container that closes securely.
  • Add sugar, pepper, salt, lemon juice, orange juice, white balsamic vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil to the mason jar and shake to mix well.
  • Set aside.

Salmon:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place Cedar Planked salmon directly on the middle rack and place a foil-lined baking sheet on the rack below to catch dripping juices.
  • Cook 18-20 minutes, until the flesh becomes flakey. It is perfectly cooked when it is still slightly pink in the center of the fillet.
  • Cut into 4 pieces.

Salad:

  • While salmon is cooking, place spring mix greens in 4 bowls or plates.
  • Top greens with goat cheese, dried cranberries, candied pecans, strawberries, and bacon.
  • When salmon is done, drizzle with Citrus Ginger White Balsamic Vinaigrette and top with salmon.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Discard the plank after 1 use.
  2. Keep the salmon frozen until 24 hours before cooking.
  3. Once Salmon has defrosted, do not re-freeze!
