How to Make Cabbage Salad With Salmon and Soy Sauce
- Cut the carrot into sticks, peel the orange, shred the red cabbage, slice the red onion into roundels.
- Prepare the soy sauce vinaigrette. Add the honey in a small bowl. Next, add the soy sauce, white wine vinegar, and sesame seeds. Crush the garlic and add it to the vinaigrette. Peel and shred a piece of ginger (0.6-inch/1.5 cm). Stir and set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Lay the salmon fillets skin-side down and cook them for 4 minutes. Flip the salmon and drizzle 1 teaspoon of soy sauce mixture over the fillets. Cook for 3 more minutes.
- Prepare two plates. Chop the lettuce and place them on the plates, then add equal quantities of cabbage, carrots, onion rings, orange pieces, and the salmon fillets. Drizzle the remaining soy sauce vinaigrette on top of the salad.
