The Perfect Fish Side Salad

Fish is the best summer food, and a perfect meal is not complete without a fresh salad.  This Hula Ginger Vinaigrette Salad, adapted from Half Baked Harvest, is the best salad to have with some grilled fish or shellfish.  


  • 20square wonton wrappers cut into strips (use corn tortillas to make this gluten-free)


  • 4-8cup spring greens
  • 1/2cup fresh cilantro
  • 1cup fresh pineapple diced
  • 1avocado, sliced
  • 1jalapeno or red chile sliced


  • 1/2cup hot chile sesame oil or toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4cup soy sauce
  • 2tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 2tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1teaspoon chile garlic sauce or sriracha or more to taste
  • 1tablespoon tahini
  • 1lime zested + juiced
  • 2teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1clove garlic grated or minced
  • back and white sesame seeds toasted


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Arrange the wonton strips in a single layer (or as best you can get them) on a greased baking sheet. Spray the wontons with olive oil spray and a good sprinkle of sea salt. Bake in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, watching them closely to make sure they don’t burn. They are done when they are a light golden color and crisp.
  3. Combine the spring greens, cilantro, pineapple chunks, avocado, and jalapeño (or red chile) in a bowl and toss.
  4. In another small bowl make the vinaigrette. Combine the hot chile sesame oil, soy sauce, pineapple juice, rice vinegar, chile-garlic sauce, tahini, 1 teaspoon lime zest, and the juice of 1 lime, the fresh ginger, and garlic. Add 1-2 tablespoons black and white sesame seeds.
  5. Divide the greens among plates. Top with tuna, avocado slices, and wonton crisps. Drizzle with the vinaigrette. Dig in!
