Recipe by Chef mariajane

It's always nice to be told to eat something fatty. Fat simply makes things taste better, and that's why salmon, which is good-for-you omega-3 fatty acids, is such a great choice on a healthy diet, especially if you just can't face another boneless skinless chicken breast!! The warm relish, made with peppery arugula, roasted tomatoes and peppers, creates an excellent balance to the assertive flavor of the salmon, Plus, a crust of thinly sliced Yukon Gold potatoes gives the salmon a welcome crunch.
