Your taste buds will come alive when you try this salmon that is marinated with the
sweet and sour flavors of orange, lemon, lime and honey and the
Asian flavors of sesame, soy sauce, garlic and ginger and topped with almonds.
In addition to the sweet and salty flavors of the citrus, honey and soy sauce, garlic and ginger there is sesame oil and almonds. and the salmon rests on a bed of mixed greens, oranges, lemons, limes and Asian dressing. All flavors come together to make the most moist, flavorful, delicious Asian Citrus Salmon Salad that you have ever eaten.
Make the marinate dressing and divide it in half. Marinate the salmon in half of the mixture and save the other half for the salad dressing.
This salmon was very moist. Five things come together to make salmon moist, delicious and with melt in your mouth goodness. The requirements for a moist piece of salmon are:
- Buy the best quality salmon possible. I prefer wild caught salmon but it is not always available. Many farm raised salmon are also very good.
- Salmon with more fat in it, that is more marbling will be better tasting.
- Purchase a piece that is at least 1 inch thick. The thicker the better.
- Marinate with a delicious combination of flavors like this Asian citrus marinate.
- Grill the salmon for about 5 minutes on each side. Salmon will be more moist if cooked on the rare to medium rare but if you only like it well done then grill for a few minutes longer on each side.
After marinating the salmon in the flavorful and delicious dressing, grill it in a grill pan. I really needed new cookware and while watching HSN one night I ended up purchasing this one. I actually purchased the whole set of cookware in red. Here is another version of the Curtis Stone grill pan. Ended up loving them so much that I purchased another set for my daughter in turquoise. I love the grill pan.
If you want a simple, moist, flavorful salmon salad recipe then this Asian Citrus Salmon Salad is the one that will make your taste buds happy!

Never tried cooking with a citrus soak, sounds so interesting, must surely try it sometime. sliced almonds must have given a good crunch.
It is marinated in orange, lemon and lime juice along with sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger and it is used as a marinate and a salad dressing.
I love how you combined all those great flavours together in one great looking and inviting assembly 🙂 citruses are always a great and invigorating aditions!
Thanks Mari. The flavors were great together.

I am a big fan of salmon – especially during the spring salmon runs in the northwest. Using the citrus to add flavor and help break down the meat to a nice moist texture is great! This looks like a lovely meal!
