Recipe Ingredients for Salmon with lemon-pepper sauce and watercress salad

7 oz Greek yogurt
8 teaspoons lemon juice, divided
1 teaspoon lemon zest, divided
2 tablespoons honey
5 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons shallot, chopped
36 ounce salmon fillets
1 1/2 cups arugula, lightly packed
1/4 cup fresh dill
1/4 cup fresh tarragon leaves

Recipe Directions for Salmon with lemon-pepper sauce and watercress salad

  1. Whisk yogurt, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel in small bowl. Season with salt and generous amount of pepper.

  2. Whisk honey, 1 tablespoon olive oil, shallot, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel in 11x7x2-inch glass baking dish. Add salmon fillets and turn to coat. Cover and chill at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour, turning salmon fillets occasionally. Position rack in top third of oven and preheat to 400F. Line large baking sheet with foil and brush with olive oil. Transfer salmon fillets, with some marinade still clinging, to rimmed baking sheet. Roast until salmon is just opaque in center, about 14 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, toss watercress leaves and sprigs, dill sprigs, tarragon leaves, remaining 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. Place 1 salmon fillet on each of 6 plates. Top with watercress salad. Drizzle with lemon-pepper sauce. Serve, passing additional sauce alongside.
