  • 1 1 1/2 pound salmon fillet with skin
  • Finely grated fresh lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 1 pound package linguini fini
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 small shallot, peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 4 ounce log soft mild plain goat cheese, crumbled, plus additional for garnish
  • 5 ounces baby arugula
  • Freshly ground pepper, optional
Line a large baking sheet with foil. Rinse salmon and pat dry; place, skin side down, on baking sheet. Combine half of lemon zest, the coriander and 1 2 teaspoon kosher salt in a small bowl. Brush top of salmon with 2 teaspoons oil and rub with zest mixture. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil; add table salt. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 7 minutes; drain.
Preheat broiler and arrange rack 4 inches from heat. Broil salmon 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well. Transfer on baking sheet to rack and let cool slightly.
Peel skin off salmon (discard skin) and flake into a large serving bowl. Add tomatoes, shallot, cheese, arugula, pasta, remaining lemon zest, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 3 tablespoons oil to bowl; toss gently to combine. Garnish with cheese and season with pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
