  • 1 16 oz. wild salmon fillet (enough for 4 servings)
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 cups fresh salad greens
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 8 fresh figs
  • 2 avocados

Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • coarse sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Toss freshly washed greens with honey-balsamic vinaigrette and arrange on serving plates.
  • Top with fresh quartered figs, blueberries and sliced avocado.
  • Brush salmon fillet with 2 teaspoons oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place skin side down diagonally on the grate of your gas grill. Lower the lid and cook for 2 - 4 minutes. 
  • Gently lift the fillet with a fish turner. If it releases, carefully flip it over to the other side. If not, let it cook a little longer, then try again. Lower the lid and grill for 5- 7 minutes on the other side or until fish is no longer opaque, it flakes easily with a fork, or it has reached an internal temperature of 125°F.
  • Brush with 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup and grill 1 - 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Slice salmon into bite-sized pieces and arrange on salad. Drizzle with honey-balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Serve immediately.
