So if you have read my other blogs you would know I belong to a local farm CSA. Well this week share had some great organic in season vegetables. I incorporated some of them into my meal tonight.. and made a delicious season salad to top my grilled salmon. This meal has lots of different flavor and textures.
I love to grill all year round. My neighbors know this as they see me out there usually four to five times a week even in rain or snow. I have grilled lots of different vegetables but never tried grilling beets until tonight. Grilling beets adds a great, smoky flavor. After tonight I know I will be doing it more often! I love to include some type of salad in my dishes. This time I topped my salmon with the peppery goodness of radishes paired with a sweet apple and pea shoots. I made this dish for the first time and it ended up working out great. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did.
Combine salmon marinade and salmon and refrigerate at least and hour or overnight
Combine and whisk beet marinade and salad dressing. Set aside
Peel and slice beets into 1/2" thick medallions. Marinade with 3/4 of the beet marinade for at least and hour or overnight. Reserve the rest of the marinade to use for salad dressing
Make the seasonal salad. Dice the radishes, apples and combine with pea shoots or micro greens. Dress and toss salsa with the reserved beet marinade/dressing. Set aside
Heat grill to medium high heat. Grill beets for around 7 minutes on each side. Depending on the thickness of your salmon grill 4-6 minutes on each side till cooked medium or medium well.
Serve salmon with seasonal salad on top or side. Serve with beets and a lemon wedge.. enjoy!
