Fennel-Crusted Salmon on White Beans

Delicious warm white beans and fennel are topped with succulent fennel-seed-crusted salmon for a double hit of flavor. For an extra-fresh look, set aside some additional chopped fennel fronds to use as a garnish.

Serves 6

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 bulb fennel, halved, cored and thinly sliced, plus 1 tablespoon chopped fennel fronds
  • 2 15-ounce c white beans, rinsed
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 pound salmon fillet, skin removed (see Tip), cut into 2 portions

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sliced fennel; cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in beans, tomatoes and wine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; stir in chopped fennel fronds, mustard and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover to keep warm.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine fennel seeds and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly on both sides of salmon.

Step 3

Wipe out the pan. Add the remaining 3 teaspoons oil to the pan and heat over high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add the salmon, skinned-side up, and cook until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the salmon over, cover and remove from the heat. Let stand until the salmon finishes cooking off the heat, 3 to 5 minutes more. Transfer the salmon to a cutting board and flake with a fork. Serve salmon on top of the warm bean mixture.
