Richy’s Salmon Salad

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • ½ cup of walnut halves
  • 2 oranges, peeled, white pith removed
  • 1 bunch watercress, sprigs picked, washed, dried
  • 1 x small pkt baby Asian greens
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, halved, stone removed, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the salmon on a large sheet of non-stick baking paper. Fold the edges over to enclose the salmon. Tuck the edges under to seal. Place on a baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes or until just cooked through. Unwrap and set aside for 15 minutes to cool.

Step 2

Distribute the walnuts over a baking tray and bake for 4 minutes or until toasted. Set aside to cool and then chop coarsely.

Step 3

Holding one orange over a bowl to catch juice, use a small sharp knife to remove the segments. Repeat with remaining orange and reserve the juice.

Step 4

Combine the orange, watercress, Asian greens and avocado in a clear bowl.

Step 5

Combine the olive oil, vinegar and the reserved orange juice in a measuring cup and whisk. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss to combine then season with salt and pepper. Arrange the salad among serving plates.

Step 6

Flake the salmon into large pieces. Arrange salmon over the watercress salad. Sprinkle with walnuts and serve.
