Cook Time:


4 (6-ounce) sustainable salmon fillets (such as wild Alaskan)
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

5 thin lemon slices, halved
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl. Add green onions; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add lemon slices; cook 2 minutes. Sprinkle green onion mixture with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates. Place arugula in a medium bowl. Add green onion mixture to bowl with arugula; toss.
