Spicey Peanut Salmon Salad

On Sunday afternoon D decided that he wanted to make something healthy for lunch. We had been out to dinner Saturday night and had overindulged a bit.  So something light and healthy was a good thing.  It was delicious! The spiciness of the peanuts coupled with the salmon salad was just about perfect.

We think that it may need a drizzle of something.  But we just couldn't come up with any ideas. Do you have any ideas? Even without the drizzle, it was a great lunch!

1/4 c dry roasted peanuts

1/4 t cumin
1/4 t chili powder
1/4 t Bankok Blend (from Penzeys) though you could use an Indian-type seasoning blend
1 T vegetable or canola oil
12 oz canned salmon (we used canned Sockeye Salmon from Costco)
1/2 c plain lowfat yogurt
3/4 t Northwoods Fire seasoning (from Penzeys)
3/4 t Sandwich Sprinkle (from Penzeys)  
Chopped lettuce

Mix cumin, chili powder and Bankok Blend in a small bowl.
Heat oil in small pan.
Chop peanuts into small pieces.
Add spices from small bowl to oil, stirring to combine with oil.
Place peanuts into heated oil, stirring to coat. 
Heat until the spices darken.
Turn off heat.
In a separate bowl, combine salmon, Northwoods Fire, Sandwich Sprinkle and yogurt; stirring to combine completely.
Place salmon mixture in fridge for 30 minutes to let flavors mingle.
Serve a scoop of salmon on a bed of lettuce, sprinkle with spicy peanuts
