Glazed Salmon With Spinach & Radish Salad Recipe

A healthy salad from Food Network star Gordon Ramsay.


4 lightly smoked salmon fillets, 4-5 oz. each
3-1/2 oz. baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
8-10 radishes, washed, trimmed, and finely sliced

3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp grated gingerroot

1 tbsp grated gingerroot
3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
2-3 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)


Step 1: Remove the skin from the salmon and check carefully for pin-bones, pulling out any with kitchen tweezers. Place the fillets side by side in a shallow dish.

Step 2: For the marinade, mix the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour over the salmon to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to permeate.

Step 3: For the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Step 4: Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Step 5: Arrange the spinach leaves on individual plates and top with the radish slices.

Step 6: Lift the salmon from the marinade and arrange on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Cook in the oven for 4-6 minutes until medium rare, basting after 2 minutes. The fish should feel slightly springy when pressed.

Step 7: Place a salmon fillet in the middle of each plate and drizzle the ginger and tahini dressing over the salad to serve. (If you’re preparing this salad for a packed lunch, let the salmon cool and pack the dressing and salad leaves in separate containers. Assemble just before eating.)
