Red-Hot Sesame Spinach Salad

Red-Hot Sesame Spinach Salad


  • 1/4 cup scallions (about 2 medium), thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • 6 scallions, trimmed and sliced into 1-inch batons (white and green parts)
  • 3/4 pound shiitake mushroom caps, sliced
  • 3 cups corn
  • 6 4 ounces salmon fillets, about 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 18 cups cleaned spinach leaves
  • 3 cups bean sprouts
  • 2 sweet red peppers, cored, seeded, and thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat broiler. Whisk dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. To make salad, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions and mushrooms. Saute for 6 minutes. Stir in corn, cover, and set aside.
  3. Spray each salmon fillet with cooking spray. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil for 8 minutes or until salmon is juicy and just cooked through.
  4. Divide spinach, bean sprouts, and peppers among 6 dinner plates. Top with an equal portion of warm mushroom mixture. Slide a spatula under each piece of salmon (skin may stick to the foil) and place atop the mushroom mixture. Top with dressing and serve immediately.
