2 large shallots, diced finely
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 cups Plain Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt
6 cups arugula
Preheat oven to 350°F. Toss potatoes in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in a roasting dish and cook for 20 minutes until tender. Cut salmon filet into 6 even sized pieces and rub with remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Spray non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Sear salmon on each side for 2 minutes. Transfer to baking sheet. Bake in the oven with potatoes for 5 minutes or to desired doneness (medium-medium rare is best), if you prefer well done, cook for 8 minutes. In a small bowl, combine shallots, cider vinegar, salt, curry, cayenne, sugar and yogurt. Divide arugula evenly between 6 plates. Place a piece of salmon and two potatoes over arugula and drizzle generously with yogurt curry mixture.
