Salmon Salad Recipe

Yield: Serves 3-4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
2 lbs salmon
1/3 cup sliced scallions
1/3 cup loosely packed fresh dill, chopped
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp dijon mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper (or to taste)
water crackers, for serving

Directions:
First we want to cook the salmon. And frankly, you can do it however you want to, and it doesn’t have to be pretty since it’s getting flaked up anyway. I usually cook mine in a skillet, which takes about 5-10 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon. You may also grill it, poach it, bake it, etc. When the salmon is cooked through to 140 degrees F, flake the salmon with a fork (discard the skin, if your salmon has skin on it).

In a big bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add the salmon to the dressing, and toss. Taste and check for seasoning. It is now ready to be enjoyed warm, or you can pop it into the fridge until fully chilled. Enjoy!
