  • 1 Tablespoon chopped ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons rice-wine vinegar
  • 4 Cups arugula
  • 3 Cups cubed watermelon
  • 2 Teaspoons black sesame seeds

Directions

Marinate the salmon with the soy sauce, orange juice, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, and rice-wine vinegar in a zip-lock bag in the refrigerator for 10-30 minutes.

Salmon Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
