Spicy Fish Salad

Genny Bortner


This is one of my favorite quick dishes year round. Healthy and fast. The seasonings I use below may be too much, so adjust to what you like. Always easier to start of with a little chili powder then add later if needed. The dressing does not taste good by itself, but goes so well with the spicy fish and sweet fruit blend.
So delicious and I promise, you will love love love!

1 or more


15 Min


20 Min


mixed lettuce (red, baby spinach, etc...)
1 c
seedless red grapes (sliced)
avacado (sliced)
1 can(s)
garbanzo beans
favorite white fish - i love cod
greek goddess dressing or ranch
goat or feta cheese- crumbled
1 tsp
oregano, dried and onion powder
fresh garlic
olive oil, extra virgin

Directions Step-By-Step

The Dijon Dressing: Serves 1 to 2
1. 2 Tablespoons of Dijon mustard
2. 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar
3. 1 to 2 teaspoons of lemon juice (start with 1 then add if desired).

Stir to blend well. If you taste and find it too vinegary, add more dijon. It will be a bit on the "sour" side, but goes really well with the spicy and sweet combination on the salad.
Garbanzo Bean Mix:
1 can of beans, drained
2 Tablespoon of Greek Goddess Dressing (or Ranch)
1 Tablespoon of Oregano or mixed Italian seasonings
Goat or Feta, to taste

Mix well and chill until ready to go on salad.
Spicy Fish:
Heat skillet with Olive Oil (enough to coat) and minced garlic.
Rub about teaspoon of olive oil and more garlic on both sides of the fish.
Sprinkle the following seasoning on each side.
- 1 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- 2 teaspoon of chili powder
Once hot (sizzling), lay fish in pan. Cook each side and add more seasoning if you choose.
Lay the lettuce, sliced avocado and grapes on a dinner plate.
Add a about half a cup of the garbanzo mixture. Then top with the fish (hopefully in one piece).
Top it off with goat cheese crumbles over the fish.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad (not too much).
