2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Pickle the zucchini

  • Trim the ends from the zucchini. Lay the zucchini flat; using a peeler, shave the zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons.
In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini ribbons and quick-pickle brine. Season with salt, if desired, and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the baby broccoli

  • Trim the root ends from the baby broccoli.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the broccoli, season with salt, if desired, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
While the broccoli cooks, prepare the salmon burgers.


Cook the salmon burgers

  • Pat the salmon burgers dry with a paper towel.
In the same pan used for the broccoli, warm 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the salmon burgers and cook, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
While the burgers cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the ends from the radishes; thinly slice the radishes.
  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the radishes and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt, if desired, and pepper.


Transfer a few lettuce leaves to each individual plate. Top with the salmon burgers, pickled zucchini, and radishes. Spoon the chimichurri over the baby broccoli and serve on the side.
