Instructions
 

Making Dressing

  • Crack your egg into a small microwavable bowl and add 2 tablespoons water.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds until egg white has firmed and yolk is runny but thickened.
  • Pour off the excess water with a slotted spoon. Add to blender.
  • Add all dressing ingredients to blender EXCEPT OIL. Blend until smooth.
  • While blending, add oil in a slow, steady stream until all combined and smooth.
  • Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
  • NOTE: If the par-cooked egg is not your thing, you may substitute:
    Pasteurized Egg Yolks or Heavy Mayonnaise (2 tbsp. for each egg)

Pan Searing Salmon

  • Heat a Non-Stick pan over medium high heat. Add oil to coat pan.
  • Season the Salmon with salt and pepper just before ready to cook. Salmon should sizzle when placed in pan.
  • Add Salmon Portions and pan-fry 4 minutes to a deep brown, crispy exterior.
  • Flip Salmon, lower heat to medium and cook until done, about 1 more minute.
  • Salmon is done when it flakes easily, or internal temperature has reached 145 F.

Plating Your Salad

  • Combine all salad components and toss with desired amount of dressing.
  • Sprinkle on some grated parmesan cheese.
  • Top with your crispy salmon.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
