DIRECTIONS

  • In medium bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place salmon in marinade and gently toss until thoroughly coated. Place fish in resealable bag in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • To make the vinaigrette: In plastic bowl or cup with fitted lid, combine all vinaigrette ingredients. Shake until thoroughly mixed and emulsified. Season with pepper; set aside.
  • To prepare the lentils: In 5-quart pot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add lentils, garlic cloves, bay leaf, rosemary sprig, salt and pepper. Cook lentils until just tender, about 30 minutes. Strain in colander.
  • To complete the lentil salad: In large bowl, toss lentils, carrots, celery and red onions together. Stir in enough vinaigrette, about 1/4 cup, to coat lentil mixture and store rest in refrigerator for up to one week. Toss in fresh parsley and tarragon.
  • To grill the salmon: Heat grill to 375 degrees, when it’s too hot to hold hand above coals for more than 5 seconds.
  • Spray grill rack lightly and cautiously with canola oil cooking spray, then carefully place salmon fillets on hot grill 2 inches apart. Cook on each side 3-4 minutes at diagonal angle to grill rack for professional-looking grill marks. Note: Salmon may, also, be broiled.
  • To assemble: Remove salmon from grill and serve over lentil salad. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
