Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spread the diced sweet potatoes and quartered Brussels sprouts in a single layer in a baking pan. Toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt and pepper.
  2. Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes until they are tender. They can be more or less roasted depending on how you like them. When they are done, set them aside.
  3. While the vegetables are roasting, mix all the dressing ingredients together in a food processor or blender for 30 seconds. If you like it thinner you can add a little more water. Set aside.
  4. Heat the 2 tablespoons of butter and olive oil in a non-stick frying pan. When the butter and oil are sizzling hot, add the salmon to the pan. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and squeeze the half lemon over the salmon. Pan fry for 5-7 minutes on the first side until the salmon is 3/4 cooked through. The time will depend on the thickness of your piece of fish. Turn the salmon filets over and continue cooking an additional 2-3 minutes until the salmon is done.
  5. Assemble your bowls. Layer the spinach and arugula in the bottom with the chopped tomatoes, carrots, avocado, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes. Top with a heaping spoonful of the Lemon Tahini Dressing. Place a piece of salmon on top. Add a few spoonfuls of blueberries and toasted walnuts. Drizzle with some more dressing.
