Crispy Vietnamese Salmon on Cucumber Herb Salad

Here’s a delicious, easy-to-prepare salmon dish inspired by the healthy cooking of Vietnam. Seared salmon served over a fragrant fresh herb and cucumber salad is bursting with the exotic flavors of Southeast Asia. The sweet flavors and delicate texture of the AquaBounty salmon in this recipe are perfectly complemented with fresh cucumbers, crispy fried shallots, and aromatic basil. Chef Barbara Alexander from The Culinary Institute of America shows us the secret to achieving perfectly crispy salmon: making sure the skin side of the salmon is completely dry before cooking!
