Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes
3/4 lb salmon filets cut in 4 pieces
2 TBS chopped fresh mint
3 TBS chopped fresh basil
2 TBS chopped fresh cilantro
2 TBS lemon juice
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
3 TBS chopped pumpkin seeds salt & pepper to taste
1 head romaine lettuce, rinsed and chopped
1 medium tomato, seeds and excess pulp removed and sliced
1/2 medium avocado cut into 1 inch chunks
2 TBS lemon juice extra virgin olive oil to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
Cut salmon into 4 pieces, season with salt and pepper, place on a plate and set aside. Preheat broiler on high and put stainless steel skillet (make sure handle is also stainless) for about 10 minutes until very hot. Do not use glass or pyrex for this.
Mix together mint, basil, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, chopped pumpkin seeds, salt and pepper. Set aside. This is your herb mixture.
Prepare lettuce, tomato and avocado and toss with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Remove pan from heat and place salmon on hot pan.
Broil salmon for about 4 minutes. Do not turn. Because pan is hot salmon will cook very quickly.
Place on a plate next to salad and top with herb mixture. You will have some herb mixture left over. It is so good you may also want to drizzle it on the salad greens.
