Salmon Zucchini Salad Recipe

  • 8 zucchinis small or medium are perfect
  • 8 radishes
  • 4 200gram salmon fillets skin on or off
  • cup teriyaki marinade
  • ½ cup flaked almonds
  • cup capers
  • cup balsamic garlic vinaigrette


Salmon Zucchini Salad Method

  • Add salmon fillets to a zip lock back, pour in teriyaki sauce and seal bag (optional step)
  • Peel zucchinis into long thin strips rotating in hand until only core remains (dis-guard or keep for other recipe) 
  • Slice radishes thinly using a sharp knife or mandolin
  • Toast almonds for approximately 3 minutes on the stove or in the microwave (optional step) 
  • Cook salmon for 4 minutes before flipping to other side for a further 4 minutes 
  • Use 2 forks to flake into small pieces 
  • Add zucchini, radishes, flaked salmon, toasted almonds and capers to salad plates. Dress with roasted garlic dressing and serve 


  • Marinating the salmon in the teriyaki sauce is an optional step. You do get a bit of extra flavour when you do this step (and I do it because I love teriyaki salmon), however, the dressing will also flavour the salmon so if you don't want to take this step, it won't ruin the whole dish to leave it out! 
  • I use a store bought roasted garlic balsamic dressing for this recipe. It has great flavour and doesn't compromise on taste. You will be able to find it in your supermarket, sauces section.
