If you want a light meal that is filling, healthy, and most of all, delicious then Blackened Salmon BLT Salad is for you! Karyl from Karyl’s Kulinary Krusade created this tasty dish that your whole family will love.
It’s difficult to cook a salmon filet evenly because most pieces aren’t uniform throughout. Karyl solved this problem by cutting the salmon into two-inch chunks before cooking.
She adds roasted tomatoes, avocado, bacon and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to make this dish a delicious bonanza of flavor!
