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.

Serves 4

Marinade
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or Vital Choice Macadamia Oil
3 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper, with seeds
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin


Dressing
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or Vital Choice Macadamia Oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

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.
