2 cups micro arugula
1 can gourmet chinook salmon, drained and flaked apart

Heat the butter in a medium oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook until softened and starting to brown. Add the arugula, season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in salmon, feta, and beaten eggs and season again with salt and pepper, if needed. Keep stirring for about one minute, until eggs begin to set a bit.
