For the salad:

  • 2 salmon fillets frozen or fresh
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 pineapple slices
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8-10 large shrimp
  • 1 cup clementines peeled and separated
  • 3 cups mixed greens I prefer basil in mine for maximum flavor!
  • Avocado slices

For the mango salad dressing:

  • Juice of one lemon
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • ½ cup agave
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt or coconut cream for dairy-free option
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 mango cubed
  • ¼ cup red onion diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped


  • Sprinkle the salmon fillets with salt and pepper on each side. Grill the salmon cuts until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. (It's important to cook to temperature with salmon so it isn't dry.) Salmon should be pink inside and barely flaking. Pineapple should be caramlized and soft.
  • Mix the butter, garlic, paprika, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add shrimp to grill and baste with butter mixture, cooking until pink and barely curled.
  • While meat is grilling, make mango salad dressing. Pour lemon juice, avocado oil, agave, Greek yogurt, salt, and ½ mango in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Pour in a medium bowl, and mix in remaining chopped mango, red onion, and cilantro. Chill in refrigerator to thicken and develop flavors.
  • Prepare the bed of greens on a plate. Place the pineapple slice first, then top with salmon, shrimp, and avocado. Pour the mango salad dressing and clementines on top and serve immediately. Enjoy!


If you don't want to grill your salmon or shrimp, you can bake the salmon on 450°F for 15 minutes, and grill the shrimp in a skillet on the stovetop.
