Rich salmon with slightly sweet garlic mustard, and local raw honey. There’s crunchy vegetables included that makes this fresh salad a more flavorful one than tuna salad. Children, teens, and adults alike will enjoy it on some crackers, or as a sandwich. We enjoyed our “Honey Mustard Salmon Salad” with some crackers made from red, yellow, and green lentil flour.
Wild caught salmon is in season from April through November, during which time you can find it fresh at your local markets and it is the least expensive. Wild salmon not only provides exceptional flavor and nutrition found in few other foods, but is easy to prepare and enjoyed even by those who are not always fond of fish (WHF).
Skinning and Boning A Salmon Fillet
Though we used canned salmon from The Whole Foods Market, you can use fresh cooked salmon as well.
If you happen to buy some with the skin still on and you wish to remove it and not really sure how to do it, just follow these instructions from The World’s Healthiest Foods – Salmon Bones and Skin Removed.
Start with a sharp knife and hold one edge of the filet with your fingers and slide the knife between the skin and meat at about a 45° angle facing the edge of the blade toward the skin.
Position the blade so that the fish is in the middle. Do not move your knife back and forth, but rather move the salmon back and forth on your knife blade holding the skin.
Keep the edge of the knifes blade at an angle so it cuts between the meat and skin without cutting through the skin.
To remove the bones, run your fingers over the top of the fish too find a line of bones. Remove them one at a time with a pair of tweezers, pliers, or your fingers. Pull them out going with the grain of the fish so they slide out without tearing the meat.
It takes some practice, but with a sharp knife it can actually be quite easy.
