I first shared this recipe for Quick & Easy Asian Salmon Salad on my facebook & instagram about a month ago. I got it from my friend, Robin, and it’s so good. It’s one of those ‘no recipe recipes’ that you all know I love so much. It’s more like a cooking hack, so to speak, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to find it just as clever (and delicious) as I do.

We’ve all seen those pre-made chopped salad kits in the produce department. They come in a variety of different flavors. This dish starts off with one of those – specifically the Asian chopped salad kit – and it’s genius.

First, take your favorite store-bought teriyaki sauce & brush it over your salmon filets. I like to add some sesame seeds & red pepper flakes to the teriyaki sauce before I brush it on for a little flavor boost.

Now, take the wonton & almonds packet that comes with the chopped salad kit & crush it all up. Top your salmon with that, to taste.

Bake the salmon at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Serve the salmon over the chopped salad & top the salad with the dressing that comes in the chopped salad kit.

How easy is that? And it’s super yummy! Thank you so much to Robin for sharing this awesome ‘recipe hack’ with me. I love making this (and eating it!).
