Ingredients

  • 2 skinless wild-salmon fillets (each about 8 ounces, 1 inch thick)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 Ruby Red grapefruit, peel and pith removed, segmented
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • 2 cups sunflower shoots, watercress leaves, or a combination of both
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place in a 9-inch baking dish. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with half of scallions. Bake until salmon is partially opaque in center, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a dish and let cool.

  2. Break salmon into large pieces and divide among serving dishes. Top each with grapefruit, avocado, greens, and remaining scallions. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons oil with lime juice and season with salt. Drizzle dressing over each salad.

    I really enjoyed the video. It seems so healthy and I will try it this week. I just wish she wasn't so fake happy about it all. It's like the women that are smiling while eating a salad. lol
