honey glazed salmon weight watchers recipe

Ingredients listed per serving:

6 to 8 ounce portion of fresh salmon
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 cups organic baby green
1.5 teaspoons raw honey
1 tablespoon dried goji berries
1.5 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

WW Honey Glazed Salmon on salad (3)

Directions:

Thoroughly wash and dry the salad greens, plate and chill in the refrigerator until the salmon is done.
Make sure the salmon is fully deboned before cooking (it’s easier to do now vs after it are cooked).  Turn a pan onto medium and add the olive oil.  When heated up, add the salmon to the pan skin side down-do not touch the salmon for about 3 minutes.  When it is ready to turn over it will easily slide around in the pan.  If it is not yet doing that, do not scrape it, let it continue cooking for another 30 seconds or so until it does move without help or just a tiny nudge.  After flipping put the honey in the pan, it will instantly melt and start to bubble, swirl the salmon around in the pan so it is coated in the honey.  Cook on both sides for about 2 to 3 minutes each.  Turn the filet over once to quickly brown the both sides in the honey.  Remove from the heat and let rest for about 5 minutes on a clean and dry cutting board or plate (this will help prevent the greens from wilting when the hot salmon goes on).   When ready, add the fish to the salad and sprinkle with the seeds and dried goji berries.
