READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Make the vinaigrette: In a bowl, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, shallots, lemon zest and rosemary.
  • Whisk in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Make the salmon salad: Roast the bell peppers directly over a gas flame or under the broiler as close to the heat as possible until charred all over.
  • Transfer to a paper bag and let steam for 15 minutes.
  • Scrape off the blackened skins and discard the stems, ribs and seeds.
  • Cut the peppers into 1/3-inch-thick strips.
  • Put the sliced potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and let sit in the water until tender, about 18 minutes.
  • Drain and transfer to a plate.
  • Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl.
  • Preheat the oven to 500°F Lay the salmon fillet, skinned side down, on a lightly-oiled baking sheet and remove any stray bones with tweezers.
  • Sprinkle the salmon with the thyme, fennel seeds and celery seeds; season with salt and black pepper.
  • Roast for about 10 minutes, until the salmon is opaque but still slightly rare in the centre.
  • Remove the salmon from the oven and preheat the broiler.
  • Broil for about 1 minute, or until the top is browned.
  • Break the salmon into large chunks.
  • In a large bowl, combine the arugula with the fennel, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, potatoes and cilantro.
  • Add 3/4s of the vinaigrette and toss.
  • Arrange the salad on large plates or shallow bowls and top with chunks of the salmon.
  • Drizzle the fish with the remaining vinaigrette and serve.
