Sustainable Choice: Wild Alaskan salmon is a sure sustainable choice. Avoid farmed salmon. The gingery vinaigrette is also delicious with a steak salad.
8 teaspoons canola oil, divided
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon white miso (soybean paste)
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 1/2 cups shaved English cucumber
1 (9-ounce) package fresh baby spinach
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
How to Make It
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons canola oil; swirl to coat. Sprinkle fish with salt. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; keep warm.
Combine remaining 2 tablespoons canola oil, miso, and next 4 ingredients (through sesame oil) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add cucumber and spinach to bowl; toss well. Arrange 1 fillet and 2 cups salad on each of 4 plates. Sprinkle each serving with 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds.

Could not find white miso so not sure how much that affects the recipe. Substituted with tahini after searching the Internet for a solution. Either way, the fish tastes bland even if the miso vinaigrette were to turn out right.
