This Curried Salmon Salad in Lettuce Cups is an ideal choice for a spring detox. Packed with nutrient-rich ingredients like salmon, vegetables, and spices, it offers a refreshing and satisfying meal that supports detoxification.

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for reducing inflammation and supporting liver function, a key player in detoxifying the body. The curry spices, such as turmeric, cumin, and coriander, not only add delicious flavor but also contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that promote detoxification.

Here's how to cook this amazing detox recipe:


  • 1 six-oz can wild-caught salmon (boneless and skinless)
  • ¼ fennel bulb, tough root removed and diced 
  • ½ stalk celery, chopped into small pieces 
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped 
  • 1-2 tsp Dijon mustard 
  • ¼ C parsley, finely chopped 
  • 1-2 tsp curry powder 
  • Sea salt and pepper 
  • 3-4 large lettuce leaves, washed and dried (Butter lettuce works especially well here) 
  • 6 cucumber slices 


  1. Drain salmon and place in a bowl. Use a fork to mash the salmon. Add fennel, celery, spring onion, mustard, parsley and curry powder. Mix well and season with a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper. 
  2. Scoop 1/3 of the salmon mixture into each lettuce cup and top with cucumber slices. Roll up and eat.

Using lettuce cups instead of traditional bread or wraps keeps this dish light and low in carbohydrates, making it perfect for those looking to cleanse and reset their body during springtime.

Overall, this Curried Salmon Salad in Lettuce Cups provides a flavorful and nourishing option for anyone seeking a detox-friendly meal that's quick and simple to prepare.
