This salad dishes up a wonderful blend of flavours with a very Japanese feel. Savoury yet sweet salmon full of omega-3 fish oils, beautiful greens, crunchy fennel, spicy mustard, and tangy soy vinaigrette. It's one of those quick dinners that you can toss together in 10 minutes but is totally impressive to friends and family if they are lucky enough to have you make it for them!
Finely slice 75g fresh fennel bulb into long shaved slices, then cut these into 1-2 inch long strips. Add these to a bowl or plate, then finely slice 1 large stalk celery and add to the fennel along with 25g mixed salad greens (supermarkets sell pre-mixed packs made from things such as baby spinach, rocket, arugula, mustard greens, lamb's lettuce, etc). Toss with 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, then set aside.
Place 1 tsp coconut oil into a sautee pan and warm over medium heat. While this is heating, slice one fillet salmon into 1-2 cm sized cubes and chop one green spring onion. Once the oil is hot, add the salmon and onion along with 1/2 tsp whole ground mustard and 1 Tbsp liquid aminos (Bragg's or coconut aminos). Mix the mustard into the liquid in the pan and lightly stir-fry everything until the salmon is just cooked through. Add the mixture and liquid to the salad and mix lightly to incorporate. Enjoy!
