The Za’atar strikes back in this amazing grilled salmon salad with fresh farmers market vegetables! I taught this fantastic recipe in our Healthy On You® online cooking class today and we had so much fun cooking together. I am still in awe of everyone cooking away in their own kitchens. It’s hard enough cooking sometimes, but having to keep up with me, well, that can be challenging. You have to do some prep work ahead of time but it is soooo worth it. Seriously, though, this salad was great and didn’t require a ton of ingredients. Our Healthy On You While My Za’atar Gently Weeps spice blend rocked it in the dressing. And if you are vegan or vegetarian, swap out the salmon for tofu.

  • 4 (5–6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp Healthy OnYou While My Za’atar Gently Weeps Middle Eastern Spice, plus more for serving
  • 5 ears corn on the cob, husked
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil + 2 tbsp separated
  • 2 medium heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups baby arugula or other baby greens


  1. Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan to low heat
  2. Set a pot filled halfway with water or steamer large enough contain the corn on the stove under medium heat.
  3. Wash and pat dry the salmon. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp of the olive oil and add ¼ tsp sea salt and pepper
  4. Massage the mixture onto the salmon fillets and set aside
  5. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining ½ cup of oil, 3 tbsp of lemon juice, 2 tbsp While My Za’atar Gently Weeps, garlic, and 1 tsp salt in a small bowl.
  6. Add corn to boiling water and cook until bright yellow and tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  7. Increase the heat on your grill to high and add the salmon. After 2 minutes, reduce the heat to low
  8. Meanwhile, slice corn off cob into a large bowl. Add tomatoes and onion, then toss with ½ cup dressing
  9. Turn the salmon after 5 minutes and cook for another 5 minutes on the grill-about 10 minutes total depending on thickness.
  10. Remove from the grill and flake into small chunks. Add the salmon to corn mixture and toss very gently just to coat with dressing.
  11. Transfer to a serving platter or divide among plates. Top with arugula, then drizzle with remaining dressing. Serve with additional za’atar alongside.

Savory Smoky Salmon on a bed of Leeks and Fennel

fish you were here youre so spain

Salmon is one of the easiest, healthy meals to prepare on a weeknight but sometimes we need to put a new spin on it. This week I made a delicious salmon with my Fish You Were Here and You’re So Spain spice blends. The spices added a nice smoky flavor and paired wonderfully with the tried and true favorite herby vegetable mix of leeks and fennel. The leeks and fennel help to cut the richness of the salmon and is a perfect compliment.
