•4 cups light olive oil
•Bouquet Garni or bay leaf, thyme or rosemary
•Four 6-ounce boneless, skinless Copper River salmon filets
•1 1/2 pounds micro arugula, washed and patted dry
• Salt to taste
•4 teaspoons aged balsamic vinegar – reduction

1. Combine the olive oil with the Bouquet Garni in a shallow, heavy-bottomed pan large enough to hold the salmon in a single layer over very low heat until the oil reaches 150°F on an instant-read thermometer.

2. Add the salmon and cook, at a constant temperature, for about 5 minutes or just until the salmon has begun to firm up. Using a slotted spatula, lift the salmon from the pan and place on a double layer of paper towels to drain.

3. Place a small mound of micro arugula in the center of each of four plates. Lay a piece of salmon on top of the greens on each plate. Sprinkle sel de Guerande over the salmon. Drizzle a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar over the salad and salmon on each plate and serve.
