Roasting the salmon instead of poaching adds a nice flavor. Create your own variations on this salad: you could use fresh dill along with some lemon and Dijon mustard or fresh basil with a tablespoon of tomato paste.

Salmon Salad with Mustard and Peas, a healthy recipe from Dr. Gourmet
Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 375°F.

When the oven comes to temperature, spray the pan with the olive oil and add the salmon. Reduce the heat in the oven to 325°F.

Roast the salmon for about 8 minutes, then remove from the oven. Set the salmon aside to cool and then chill in the refrigerator.

When the salmon is chilled, flake the salmon gently and place in a bowl with the yogurt, mustard, peas, celery, tarragon, salt and green onions.

Fold together gently until well blended.
