Baby Greens with Orange Flavored Salmon and Citrus Dressing


How is the fish market in your home town? ours is not the best…

If I want fish I have to make 3 decisions:

1. do I want to drive 30 minutes to go to a fish camp and get fresh fish?

2. Do I want to pay overprice for a small piece of fish at the local market?

3. or do i want to buy a whole filet at the local Costco and eat days in and out of that fish?

Well the answer is often the latter, because I rather save some money and eat good quality fish. The fish at Costco is always fresh and top quality. And NO, I do not own any stock in this store;-) I just did my homework and know where to get good quality food for a good price…

The problem of course is that a whole filet is a bit much for me and my child. So what do i do? Well I often end up fixing the whole filet and eat it for lunch.

Sometimes i make sandwiches and dress my salmon with fresh tomatoes and  aoili. Sometimes I just make a salad and top my salad with my salmon. Yummy:-)
