May- Ginger Sesame Salmon on Arugula

Ginger Sesame Salmon on Arugula

May for me feels like the true month of Spring.  Temperature is warmer, snow is long gone and all the trees and plants are a beautiful array of colour during this month when everything is out in bloom.  Its this time of year I am happy to put the comfort foods aside and re-introduce fresh green salads.   Salmon and Arugula are both considered power foods and make an excellent pair for bone health. Arugula is high in calcium and salmon contains vitamin D, necessary for calcium absorption.
