Tequila Salmon with Salad
Citrus and cilantro make this a real Mexican-style treat. Just make the salad dressing, soak the salmon in the marinade, grill or broil it, and serve with the salad.
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper, with seeds
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
4 handfuls mixed salad greens (3 to 4 ounces)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, divided
- In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.
- Place the salmon fillets in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.
- In a large bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients. Set aside until ready to serve.
