Fast & Easy Dinner: Warm Salmon Salad With Crispy Potatoes

Fast & Easy Dinner: Warm Salmon Salad With Crispy Potatoes

While everyone has purchased a rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken breasts from a market's deli, few people have applied the same technique to salmon fillets. However, most supermarkets carry a section with premade foods where cooked salmon is a staple.

Use the salmon to make this healthy meal in minutes. The flaked salmon is combined with a warm shallot buttermilk sauce before being placed on a bed of crisp arugula and crunchy potatoes. Sound enticing? Wait till you see the recipe:

It sounds good, but the top picture makes it kinda look like the fish has been battered and fried.
