Spring King Salmon
Serves 4 people
- 2 summer squash
- 1 zucchini
- 1 bunch asparagus
- 24 ounces of salmon fillets
- 4 ounces fresh mozzarella (or shaved Parmesan)
- 1¼ cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1½ cups of cooked fregula (or croutons)
- ¼ cup basil, torn
- 1 pound baby arugula (or your favorite greens)
- 4 ounces champagne vinaigrette (or balsamic, red wine, lemon and olive oil)
- Salt and pepper
Preheat your grill. Cut the summer squash and zucchini in half, lengthwise, and cut off the white fibrous part of the asparagus. Toss all the vegetables in oil, salt and pepper. Grill the squash flesh side down and then flip and grill the skin side, about three minutes per side. Remove the asparagus when it’s charred and becomes pliable.
Cut the salmon into four portions, about six ounces each. Salt and pepper both sides and rub the flesh side with a little oil. Place on grill and cook to 135–140 degrees F for a medium center.
Toss all remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl with the dressing. Adjust with salt and pepper.
