Roasted Salmon with Shiitake, Leek & Arugula Salad

By Jessica Bard / Photography By Scott Phillips
Need to eat and run? No problem. Roasting the fish and vegetables in one pan keeps cleanup to a minimum.


  • 1/2 lb. shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 medium leek, white and light-green parts only, halved lengthwise, rinsed well, and sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets, 6 to 8 oz. each
  • 3 lightly packed cups (3 oz.) baby arugula


Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment.

In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms, leek, oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

Finely grate the lemon zest. In a small bowl, mix the zest with 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

Arrange the salmon on the baking sheet, rub the lemon zest mixture on the tops and sides of the fillets, and scatter the mushrooms and leeks around the fish in a single layer.

Roast until the vegetables are tender and the fish is opaque in the center, about 15 minutes. If the fish finishes cooking before the vegetables, transfer it to a plate and continue to roast the vegetables until tender, 3 to 5 minutes more.

Combine the arugula and roasted vegetables in a large bowl. Squeeze about 1 Tbs. juice from the lemon onto the vegetables and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice. Divide the mixture among four serving plates. Top each salad with a piece of the fish and serve.
