The most delicious salmon salad recipe with creamy avocado, crunchy cucumbers and spring greens topped with a poached egg and creamy dressing! This easy seafood salad is also low-carb and keto diet friendly! Plus, it’s super easy to make!
How to Make Salmon Salad
The juicy and flavorful salmon is the real star of this dish! I make a crispy salmon seasoned simply with salt, pepper, a touch of dill and smoked paprika. To get those nice and crispy edges, make sure to get your pan and oil super hot, then add the fish. The hot oil will sear the top and sides of the salmon beautifully!
I load it up with all the goods: creamy avocado, crunchy and refreshing cucumber and even a poached egg! I love how the creamy egg yolk combines with the rest of the ingredients. Use this recipe as a guide for ingredients, not servings! You can make this salad just for yourself, for two or for a crowd!
Dressing the Salad
I dress this seafood salad with one of my favorite seafood dressings: honey mustard dressing. If you’ve never tried this dressing, you’ll love it! It goes so well with seafood and not just this salmon! I also like to top my salmon salad off with sliced shallots, more fresh dill and a few briny capers to really bring everything together.
Dieting doesn’t mean you have to give up great flavor and good food! This incredible keto and low-carb friendly salmon salad recipe proves the point! I’ve omitted croutons and any veggies high in carbohydrates. This seafood salad is packed full of protein and nutritious ingredients without any flavor compromise and with limited amount of carbs!
