Pour fennel seeds into a small baggie and crush with a rolling pin. Add parsley, brown
sugar, 1/4 tsp, and 1 tsp pepper to the bag, and shake to mix.
Using your fingers, press the mixture into the skinless side of the salmon. Wrap in foil or set in lightly sprayed baking dish. Broil, skin side down, until it is no longer red in the center. About 8 minutes.
