For this fast weeknight meal, Nigella Lawson uses poached salmon and watercress. We preferred the convenience of hot-smoked salmon and widely available baby arugula. Unlike cold-smoked salmon, hot-smoked has texture similar to cooked salmon, but with an intensely smoky flavor with sweet, salty overtones.
cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
tablespoons whole-grain mustard
01In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, honey, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Whisking constantly, add the oil in a stream until emulsified.

We smoke a side of salmon for our normal crew just before Thanksgiving. Then came 2020...a side of salmon for 2 people was a little over kill but then if there are ways to manage the leftovers then go for it! This is the perfect dish. I ended up freezing portions of the salmon for future use. We thawed the first batch today which was 8 days after smoking. I think I froze it roughly 3 days ago. There was no diminished quality in the salmon. The recipe was perfect for this day (after work) and the leftover fish. I did "roast" the pepitas in a fying pan with a little olive oil so that the salt would adhere. They worked perfectly. I wouldn't change a thing. Great recipe
