A note about serious food allergies

According to the nutritionists, salmon is one of the healthiest fish in the world. Who are we to argue with that? Grill it for some smoky, charred goodness, glaze it with sweet BBQ sauce and serve it with a light and crisp snap pea and fennel slaw. New to fennel? You'll delight in this crisp root vegetable's aromatic, anise-y flavor and crunchiness. Summer doesn't last forever, and this dish certainly won't last long on your plate.

    Rinse all the produce and pat dry. Rinse the salmon and pat dry. Slice the snap peas on a bias (on an angle.)

Slice the lemon in half.

    Make the Slaw

    In a mixing bowl, combine the juice of the lemon (to taste), white wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk together to incorporate. Add the snap peas, fennel, and green onion. Mix to incorporate. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes before serving. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Cook the Salmon

    Heat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium heat. Lightly brush the grill, or grill pan, with olive oil or lightly coat with cooking spray. Season salmon with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place salmon on grill and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes, or until fish is firm to the touch and flakes when pressure is applied.

  • Step 4 - Glaze the Salmon

    Glaze the Salmon

    Brush the salmon with BBQ sauce during the final two minutes of cooking, turning to glaze both sides. The BBQ sauce can burn easily, so keep a close watch on the salmon as it cooks.
