Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Salmon Salad

  • Servings: 4
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10-15 minutes



  • 4 (4-ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon, halved and sliced


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 shallot, minced

  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • Fresh dill, for garnish


1. For the salmon: Preheat the oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Place the salmon skin-side down on the baking sheet and sprinkle with the red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Arrange the lemon slices over the fish. Broil for 10 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through.
3. For the vinaigrette: Meanwhile, combine the oil, vinegar, mustard, and shallot in a jar with a lid and shake. Divide the mixed greens among 4 plates and drizzle some of the vinaigrette over the greens.
Place a salmon fillet on each plate and serve, garnished with fresh dill.

I like to make salmon on Sunday to eat later in the week. Put in a sealed container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
