Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Make the fennel and orange salad

  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; coarsely chop the leaves. 
  • Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; thinly slice the quarters lengthwise.
  • In a large bowl, juice half of 1 orange [1 orange]. Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the remaining 1½ oranges [3 oranges]. Cut the fruit lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Discard any seeds. Alternatively, see Chef’s Tip on supreming. 

To the bowl with the orange juice, add the champagne vinegar and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil and stir to combine. Add the romaine, fennel, and orange slices and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Prep and cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel (if using king salmon, cut in half crosswise); season lightly with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. 

For skin-on salmon: 

Add the fish, skin side up, and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn, brush with the Dijon mayo, and cook until the skin is crisp and the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. 

For skinless salmon and halibut: 

Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn, brush with the Dijon mayo, and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.

For snapper: 

Add the fish, skin side up, and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn, brush with the Dijon mayo, and cook until the skin is crisp and the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.
