Simple Lemon Dill Salmon & Mache Salad

One of my go-to weeknight dinners is this roasted lemon dill salmon over arugula and mache recipe – it’s quick, packed with nutrients, and satiating. Wild salmon is one of the best food sources of omega 3 fatty acids and protein. When paired with greens rich in antioxidants like arugula and mache, this cold-water fish makes for a perfectly balanced meal. I opt for an easy cleanup by lining my baking sheet with parchment paper and pop the dressed salmon into the oven. Once cooked, I’ll serve the salmon and arugula mache salad over this beautiful David Rasmussen wood platter.
