This recipe for Smoky Ginger & Orange Salmon Salad is so easy and fun to prepare and is so delicious! I made this recipe with a portion of cedar planked Orange Ginger salmon from Cedar Bay Grilling Company. The frozen portion of salmon came pre-seasoned with orange rind, brown sugar, ginger and other spices. The salmon came with its own pre-soaked cedar plank! To prepare the salmon, all I did was defrost it and heat it up on the grill for about 15 minutes. This salmon is simple to prepare and yummy! I like cooking on the grill — I adore the added flavor the grill lends, and I like that cooking outside on the patio means less kitchen cleanup!
I got my Weber Propane Gas Gril a few years ago. Little by little I’ve been learning how to cook new recipes on my grill. I’ve always wanted to grill salmon on a cedar plank on my Weber grill, and have pinned several salmon plank recipes to my Recipes Pinterest board. I recently received a Orange Ginger 24 ounce cedar planked salmon from Cedar Bay Grilling Company™ as part of the Blogger Recipe Challenge from Cedar Bay Grilling Company! The top prize for this recipe contest is $1,000! So today, my recipe for the Pinterest Challenge will be a Smoky Ginger & Orange Salmon Salad. (Wish me luck in the contest!)
Cedar Bay Grilling Company salmon can be purchased at Kroger, Publix, Hannaford, Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, Ralph’s, Giant, Giant eagle, Stop n Shop and Roche Bros.
The Pinterest Challenge is hosted by Erlene of My Pinterventures once a month. In the challenge, my blogging friends and I get together to challenge ourselves to try a pin that we’ve pinned — whether it be a recipe, DIY project, craft, etc. Scroll down below to see my friends’ projects and recipes for this month!
For my smoky ginger and orange salmon salad, I first made some homemade orange ginger salad dressing. I then heated my grill to 425°F.
While my grill was heating, I washed and prepared all the salad greens, fruit and vegetables for this main dish salad recipe and put the salad into a beautiful large wood salad bowl. I like to pair the salad bowl with a colorful pair of salad servers.
Once the grill was hot, I cooked the salmon according to the package’s directions.
I love the orange/ginger taste of this perfectly seasoned salmon from Cedar Bay Grilling Company! Grilling the salmon couldn’t be easier – I didn’t have to season the fish or soap the cedar plank. All I did was place the salmon on its plank into the heated grill, and I was ready to go!
Once the salmon was grilled, I sliced it and placed it on top of the fresh salad and topped everything with my homemade vinaigrette.
