Spicy Thai Salmon Chopped Salad with a Sriracha Peanut Dressing!

*This recipe is sponsored by Chicken of the Sea. All opinions are, as always, 100% my own.*

I am always begging Jorge to go out for Thai food. The nearest Thai restaurant to us is 30 minutes away and it is both a curse and a blessing. I’m pretty sure if it was any closer we would be having Thai at least once a week.
I love all the spicy flavors, noodles, peanut sauces and curries. Oh and you haven’t lived until you have had a Thai Crab Rangoon made with curry. Seriously.

So it should come as no surprise that I am always trying to find new ways to bring Thai flavors into recipes I like to make at home. I will be honest that it pushes me a bit out of my comfort zone and makes me combine flavors that I am not used to combining.

I have made a few Thai recipes over the years, but this Spicy Thai Salmon Chopped Salad is probably the easiest yet!

Jorge has a ton of short work trips coming up this month and I like to find healthy dinners that I can easily make just for myself when he is gone.

I accepted Chicken of the Sea’s challenge to Live Large and I am glad I did. I stepped out of my comfort zone and got exotic with my salad! If you take the #SeaThePossibilities Challenge Contest, you have the chance to win $5,000 towards your own Live Large Adventure! Whoop whoop!

The sriracha sauce on the salmon (with a little also added to the creamy peanut butter dressing) really spiced it up. I love how easy it is to open Chicken of the Sea’s Sriracha Flavored Salmon Pouch to add to my salads or just snack on with crackers.

Thankfully, this gorgeous Spicy Thai Salmon Chopped Salad is not only full of flavor, it is also guilt free. It has tons of protein to fill you up from the salmon and peanut butter dressing.

It is also packed with veggies and has some healthy fats too. This isn’t one of those salads you eat and then are hungry an hour later. Those are the worst!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    If my local Thai place would deliver I would eat it at least twice a week. Everything from their soup to their noodles lures me in…yum! This salad looks awesome and totally something I would devour 🙂

    Oh! This looks and sounds fabulous! There aren’t too many Thai restaurants near me, either, so this is a great recipe to have on hand – yum!

    I never knew Chicken of the Sea had such great little pouches!  Thanks for sharing!  I’ll be looking for those in my grocery store!

      I used to have the same problem with my kids, but it was because I tried to introduce them kale in a raw form. Since I remove a hard rib and blanch the remaining parts they eat it quite willingly.

    I absolutely love peanut butter dressings used in a variety of Thai dishes. I can’t wait to make this thank you for sharing.
