Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 16 ounces salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups arugula

Preparation

  1. Place honey, grated lemon peel, ground pepper, garlic powder and hot water in a small bowl and whisk until blended. With gloved hands, rub mixture over salmon fillets.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add spice-rubbed salmon fillets and cook 4 minutes. Carefully turn fillets with a spatula.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook an additional 4 to 6 minutes, until fish turns opaque throughout and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  4. Arrange 1/2-cup arugula on each plate. Place salmon fillet on top of arugula and garnish with a sprig of fresh dill.
