Make It Leaner
Use only half the tapenade to slash 90 calories and 5 grams of fat per serving. To save an additional 20 calories and 2.5 grams of fat, cook the fish in a nonstick frying pan and skip the oil.
According to the Herb Society of America, dill has been prized for thousands of years for its culinary, medicinal, and even character qualities. In ancient Rome, “gladiators were fed meals covered with dill because it was hoped that the herb would grant them valor and courage.”

Prep and roast the broccoli and fish
Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for both fish options.
- Trim the root ends from the baby broccoli. On one end of the sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], drizzle the broccoli with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt, if desired, and pepper and toss to coat.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], rub the fish all over with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt, if desired, and pepper (then place the salmon skin side down).
While the broccoli and fish roast, prepare the tapenade and the harissa tahini sauce.

- Coarsely chop the almonds.
- Pull the dates away from their pits; coarsely chop the dates.
