Try Salmon Salad with Butternut Squash for a new weeknight dinner. Marinated salmon and roasted butternut squash give this bistro-style spinach salad terrific flavor. If you love seafood, this Salmon Salad with Butternut Squash dish is for you.
Marinate the salmon for 10 minutes with 2 tablespoons of dressing. Refrigerate.
Take the salmon out of the fridge, discard dressing and season with cumin and ground pepper on both sides. Heat grill pan on stove; grill salmon filet on high 5 min. on each side and set aside. The Keta salmon comes in a thin fillet so it cooks fast.
To make the salad, add spinach, then salmon, butternut squash and garnish with a slice of roasted jalapeño, a thin slice of a lime and parsley leaves to a salad bowl.
For serving, drizzle remaining dressing and enjoy.
I am using Keta Salmon instead of Pink Salmon since it is my preference to use wild caught fish and this type of salmon was the one available in my local market. Yet you can use any salmon of your choice or a white fish like Mahi Mahi that can be found easily on the frozen aisle at the supermarket.
This salad can also use canned salmon or tuna and you can replace the butternut squash for sweet potatoes.
