- 3 tbsp honey
- 3 1/2 tsp lemon peel
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp hot water
- 16 oz salmon fillets
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 cups arugula
- 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.
- Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add spice-rubbed salmon fillets and cook 4 minutes. Carefully turn fillets with a spatula.
- 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.
- Arrange 1/2-cup arugula on each plate. Place salmon fillet on top of arugula and garnish with a sprig of fresh dill.
