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

Wash produce before use


Prep and poach the fish

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for both fish options.
  • Roll the kumquats between your palms until the skin looks shiny to release any oils. Thinly slice the kumquats crosswise; discard any large seeds. Set aside three-quarters of the kumquat slices for the salad.
  • Set aside half the dill for the salad.
In a large sauce pot, combine either 2 cups [4 cups] water and 1 cup [2 cups] white wine (from your pantry) or 3 cups [6 cups] water with ¼ cup [½ cup] oil. Add the peppercorns, one-quarter of the kumquat slices, and half the dill; season generously with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the fish, and cook until the fish is opaque and flaky, 6 to 8 minutes.
Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the fish to a plate to cool slightly, then using a fork, flake the fish into 1-inch pieces (discarding the salmon skin if desired). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the fish cooks, start preparing the remaining salad ingredients.


Prep the remaining salad ingredients

  • Trim the root ends and any coarse stems from the watercress.
  • Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; thinly slice the quarters lengthwise.
  • Cut the sugar snap peas in half on the diagonal.
  • Strip the remaining dill fronds from the stems.
In a small bowl, stir together the tahini goddess dressing and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Toss the salmon salad

In a large bowl, toss together the mixed greens, watercress, fennel, snap peas, fish, tahini goddess dressing, and remaining kumquat slices and dill. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the salad to individual plates and serve.
