  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon cannabis infused olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • Cooking spray


  • 8 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 4 seedless oranges each peeled and cut into segments
  • 1 medium avocado peeled and diced
  • 1 small cucumber peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1/2 small red onion thinly sliced


  • Prepare dressing by whisking all dressing ingredients together in a blender, food processor or by hand. Set aside.
  • Build a medium-hot grill fire.
  • Drizzle salmon fillets with lemon juice and sprinkle with black pepper.
  • Grill salmon, skin sides up, on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove and discard the skin from fillets (or the skin makes a great healthy cat or dog treat).
  • In a large salad bowl, toss together spinach, orange sections, avocado, cucumber, and red onion with the dressing until well coated.
  • Divide salad among 4 large plates and top each salad with grilled salmon. Serve immediately.
