cup dry white wine or chicken broth
6
cups shredded lettuce

cup croutons

teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves

Dash freshly ground pepper
  1. In 8-inch square microwavable dish, arrange fish, thickest parts to outside edges. Sprinkle with salt. Pour wine over fish. Cover with plastic wrap, folding back one edge or corner to vent steam. Microwave on high 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. Let stand covered 3 minutes; drain. Remove skin and bones; break salmon into 1-inch pieces.
  2. In large bowl, gently toss salmon with lettuce, croutons, parsley and onion. In container with tight-fitting lid, shake vinaigrette ingredients until well mixed. Drizzle over salad; gently toss until evenly coated.

Salmon is packed with omega-3 fats, the good-for-you fats that are beneficial to overall health. Salmon is a fatty fish, so using it in a salad is a great way to enjoy salmon but keep the calories down. Other fish high in omega-3 fats, such as mackerel, lake trout and albacore tuna, can be used in this recipe.
