  • 4 6 - 8 ounces salmon fillets or steaks, cut 1 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-flavored oil or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed, crushed
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce, separated into leaves
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 cup enoki mushrooms (2 ounces)
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus spears
  • 1 recipe Asian Dressing (see recipe below)
Asian Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon salad oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated gingerroot or 1/2 teaspoon chopped pickled ginger

Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. Rinse fish; pat dry.
Brush asparagus spears and both sides of salmon lightly with oil. Press fennel seed onto both sides of salmon.
Place salmon on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Place asparagus on a piece of heavy foil on grill rack next to salmon. Grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until asparagus is tender and the fish begins to flake easily, turning once halfway through.
Meanwhile, line 4 plates with lettuce leaves. Place salmon atop greens. Arrange asparagus, tomato wedges, and enoki mushrooms around salmon. Drizzle with Asian Dressing. Makes 4 servings.
