Salmon BLT

This post is a short one! Just a recipe from last weekend's dinner. I keep meals as easy as possible throughout the week and try to have a bit more fun/variety on the weekends. I'm not adding quantities for the ingredients. Seriously. It's a salad. The more ingredients you add...the bigger the salad. Modify the quantities depending on your needs and hunger level :)

This salad is high in protein and fat, which means that it will keep you fuller for longer. You won't miss the traditional bread of a BLT.

Salmon BLT

Ingredients

  • salmon fillet
  • romaine lettuce, sliced/diced 
  • cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • red onion, sliced/diced
  • avocado, diced
  • bacon, cooked
  • sea salt and pepper to season
  • dressing: ranch

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F. Prepare two separate baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  2. Lay strips of bacon on one parchment lined baking sheet. Cook in oven for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Place salmon fillet on the other parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with sprinkle of sea salt and pepper. Cook for 12-15 minutes. The fish is done when it easily flakes. I've seen these recommendations: 4-6 minutes per half inch thickness of salmon.
  4. While the meats are cooking prepare the salad. 
  5. Dice the bacon once it has cooked and sprinkle over salad. 
  6. Allow salmon a few minutes to cool before adding it to the salad. No one likes wilted romaine lettuce. 
  7. Add a light drizzle of your favorite ranch dressing. You don't need a lot! This salad is already full of flavour. 

Hope you enjoy!
