Preheat the oven to 425°F (to roast the salmon). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!

Wash and dry all produce. In a small pot, bring 1 3/4 cups salted water (double for 4 people) to a boil. Add the wild rice to the boiling water. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook until the rice is tender, 18-19 min. (Drain when the rice is cooked.)

Prep orange

Zest 1/4 tsp orange zest (double for 4 people). Cut a piece off the top and bottom ends of the orange(s). Place the flat end of the orange on a cutting board, cut the peel away from the flesh from top to bottom, turning the orange as you go.

Segment orange

When all the peel is off, slip a paring knife along each side of the "membranes" (the white lines) of each orange to release the segments into a small bowl. (Use 2 oranges for 4 people.) Squeeze the leftover orange membranes over a large bowl to release the juice. (We'll use it later for the dressing!)

In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce and half the mustard. Reserve half the maple glaze in another small bowl. Arrange the fish, skin-side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Brush one bowl maple glaze over the fish. Bake in the centre of the oven until the fish is cooked through, 11-13 min.

Meanwhile, in the bowl with the orange juice, whisk in the vinegar, remaining mustard and a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss in the arugula, orange segments, almonds and orange zest.
