final plating FINAL

Salmon after being glazed and broiled, served with lemon drizzled baby arugula


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup good quality red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
  • 1/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 side salmon (about 3 pounds), skin removed, cut into 8 fillets
  • 4 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, for serving (optional: or serve with a side of preserved lemons)


  1. Heat broiler, with rack in top position.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Add shallot and cook, stirring often until softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add vinegar and cook until slightly evaporated, 1 minute.
  4. Add mustard and brown sugar; stir until warm and combined, about 1 minute.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
  6. Place salmon fillets on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Transfer 1/2 cup glaze to a small dish and brush on top of salmon. Broil salmon until glaze is bubbling and fish is opaque throughout, 5 to 10 minutes (check at 5 minutes and monitor closely), depending on thickness
  7. Brush remaining glaze over fillets. Serve salmon along with baby arugula drizzled lightly with a lemon vinaigrette and lemon wedges.

Serves 8 (or 4 very hungry people)
