This salmon lettuce wraps are fuss-free, fork-free meal with plenty of flavor packed into a cute little bundle!
- 1 pound ( 500 grams) skinless salmon fillets
- 1 large cucumber, diced
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, diced
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 1 avocado, sliced or diced
- 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives or black olives, sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Black pepper, as needed
- Lettuce or your favorite Asian salad
- Lemon wedges
- In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade/dressing.
- Pour half of the sauce into a large, shallow dish. Reserve the remaining dressing to use later.
- Add the salmon to the marinade and mix to coat. Air fry at 400 F| 200 C for 8-10 minutes. Alternatively, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a grill or pan over medium high heat. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and flaky.
- While salmon is cooking, prepare the salad. Simply mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
- Serve salmon on top of salad in lettuce leaves.
- Drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve with lemon wedges.
- First of all, we strongly encourage you to make this salmon your favorite way, whatever that is. Any method, including air fried, baked, grilled, pan seared, or poached. We chose to air fry the salmon for this recipe but it’s really up to you and what you find easiest, and tastiest.
- As we mentioned, it’s great to use leftover salmon for this recipe, too. It’s easy to find salmon fillets sold in portions of two pounds or more, so if you’re serving a smaller group of people, just cook the whole salmon and enjoy your leftovers in these wraps the next day.
- When you’re baking salmon, your cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon. Thicker cuts will require a longer cooking time, and thinner ones will need less time to cook. The best thing to do is remove all doubt and simply use an instant read meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of your salmon to ensure it’s cooked all the way through.
- It can be tempting to overload your salmon lettuce wraps like you might do with a burrito. That can make a lot of mess. We recommend that you start by making your wraps with a little less salmon and salad than you think you need. See how the first, potentially undersized, wrap goes, and add more filling if need be.
