Salmon Pinwheel Salad
Your dinner guests will marvel at these charming pinwheels—they look like they require more effort than they actually do.
1 1/2 pounds fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillet, 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine or water
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups torn curly endive
4 cups torn red-tipped leaf lettuce
2 medium oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Fresh Orange Dressing (see recipe below)
- Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut lengthwise into 6 even strips. Sprinkle lightly with salt and black pepper. Starting with the thick end of each strip, roll up into a pinwheel. Secure with a wooden toothpick or skewer.
- In a medium skillet combine white wine, bay leaf, the 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to boiling. Add fish pinwheels. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once. Using a slotted spoon, remove fish from cooking liquid. Cover and chill for 2 to 12 hours. Discard cooking liquid.
- To serve, divide the endive, leaf lettuce, orange sections, cucumber slices, and almonds among six dinner plates. Spoon the Fresh Orange Dressing over lettuce mixture. Top with the fish pinwheels.
Makes 6 servings.
