A Day of Detox: Dinner

Image: Joyous Health This week I’m sharing my favorite recipes from Julie Daniluk‘s and Joyous Health's new detox programs, and arranging them up into one day of good, clean, healthy detoxing.

Now it's time for dinner!

This salmon recipe from Joyous Health is quick, easy, and packed with all the good stuff - omega 3s in the salmon, anti-inflammatory ginger and vitamin C-rich in the dressing, and laid on a bed of spinach for iron.

Bon Appetit!

Orange Mint Baked Salmon with Spinach by Joyous Health


  • 2 small salmon filets 6 oz (170 g) or 1 large one (cut in half)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups raw fresh spinach


  • 2 tbsp fresh mint
  • 1/2 tsp fresh raw ginger
  • Juice from 2 oranges, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar

NOTE: Give the dressing a taste test. Does it need more ginger? Feel free to adjust it to your liking.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place salmon on baking dish and drizzle with lemon and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 20-24 minutes. Check center and cook until light pink or less time if you like it darker in colour.

Toss all the dressing ingredients into a food processor and blend until mint is finely chopped.

Divide spinach equally between 2 dinner plates. Once salmon is cooked, place it on top of the spinach. Pour dressing on top of spinach and salmon.
