Loaded Fish Salad

Loaded Fish Salad

We love salads and not just because they are tasty. No, salads are also very beautiful, almost too pretty to eat. However, some may say that salads are not that filling and satisfying, but you can change this easily by adding ingredients that have really good nutritional values, such as avocado. This salad proofs that salads can be filling! If you are not a big fan of fish, then you can always replace the fish with chicken, tofu or halloumi cheese. Besides, you can add any toppings that you love, the options are endless! 

Ingredients for 2 plates:

  • 8 shrimps 
  • 100 g smoked salmon
  • 300 g of mixed salad/lettuce
  • 10 cherry tomatoes 
  • 100 g of cucumber (around one third)
  • 1 avocado 
  • 2 tsp of sesame seeds
  • 4 tsp of yoghurt mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp of wasabi paste
  • 1 tsp of oil 

Ingredients for the croutons:

  • 6 slices of baguette
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic 


Preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Sprinkle the slices of baguette with the olive oil. Put the bread in the preheated oven for around 5-7 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. When it is done, take it out of the oven. Take the clove of garlic and cut off the top. Now rub the garlic on the slices of bread.

Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in a pan on high heat. When heated, fry the shrimps for about 5 minutes, while tossing it so now and then. When this is done, put it aside. 

Mix in a small bowl the mayonnaise with the wasabi paste and mix it well together. 

Half the cherry tomatoes and slice the cucumber into thin slices. Peel the avocado and take out the seed. Slice the avocado in thin slices as well. 

Divide the salad mix over two plates. Place the cucumber, cherry tomatoes, avocado and shrimps on the plates. Cut the smoked salmon into 6 parts, top it with some of the wasabi mayonnaise and fold it. Place this also on the salad. Finnish the salad by placing the croutons on top and by sprinkling the sesame seeds. Enjoy!

Optional: if you don’t want to use the mayonnaise dressing, then you can also make a dressing with olive oil, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice and fresh dill. Yummie!
