Ask for salmon fillets from the head end of the fish--the tail end is much thinner.
1 tablespoon chopped capers, rinsed and drained
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (15-ounce) can unsalted Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained

4 cups loosely packed arugula
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

How to Make It
Whisk together capers, rind, juice, oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic, and red pepper in a bowl.
Place beans in a bowl; drizzle with 2 tablespoons caper mixture.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Coat salmon with cooking spray; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Add salmon to pan, skin side down; cook 6 minutes. Turn salmon over; cook 1 minute or until done. Keep warm.
Add arugula and onion to bowl with beans. Drizzle with remaining caper mixture; toss. Divide salad among 4 plates; top each serving with 1 fillet. Serve immediately.
I served this like a salad with the grilled salmon on top. Hubby initially turned his nose up at the arugula but afterward admitted it was better than expected. He'd probably still prefer a different type of greens when I make it again in the future.
Great meal! Loved the flavors, how easily it all came together and how it looked on the plate. I didn't have great northern beans; subbed cannellini beans instead. The simple dressing with lemon was delish on the beans and over the salmon and arugula. Kids had tacos. Happy I made the four servings so that I can have it again tomorrow for lunch! Try it!
