What do you enjoy in a salad? Do let me know in the comments below it may be something I haven’t tried yet or it might give others some inspiration.

Can I make this in advance for a work lunch?

If you are happy to eat the salmon cold then this is a great way of having a nice interesting salad for your lunch at work. All those who bring the same boring sandwich every day will be jealous of your lovely healthy salad too I am sure.

If you want to have it hot then why not bring the salmon raw with the glaze and cook it in the microwave? Salmon cooks easily in the microwave but needs steam to cook it well so is best taken in a suitable plastic tub then microwaves with the lid loosened.

Cook for around 3.5 minutes depending on the size of the piece of salmon. Ensure that there is no bright orange fish in the middle of the piece before serving.

Tasty and nutritious honey and soy salmon salad for a great lunch and easy meal for one.



Half a tbsp clear honey

Half a teaspoon Balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp Light soy sauce

125g piece of salmon fillet

Handful of salad leaves

6 cherry tomatoes


Mix the balsamic vinegar, honey and soy sauce together in a bowl.

Spread the marinade over the salmon and leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes. If it marinates longer this won’t be a problem.

Using low-calorie cooking spray if needed (you shouldn’t need it in a non-stick pan) fry the salmon fillet for around 3 minutes each side on a medium high heat until cooked through.

Meanwhile, prepare the salad.

Serve the warm salmon over the salad.

If there is any remaining sticky marinade in the pan after frying this can be poured over the salad for extra flavour.

  1. Simple but so tasty! I have had it both hot and cold – no preference actually. Often, I’ll make two salmon fillets on the Sunday and have one warm that day and the other cold to take the work. I like grapes in my salads too – chunks of apple and celery, too.
