Method of Preparation

With the skin side down, season the salmon fillets with Tajin powder, rub with olive oil.

Place cast iron pan over medium heat – lightly coat with kitchen spray.

Place salmon in pan skin-side up and brown.

While salmon is cooking, place olive oil in sauté pan over medium heat. Add carrots, fennel, and jalapeno and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Place cover on pan and turn off heat. Allow to carry-over cook. Once cool, add rice wine vinegar. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper.

Place cilantro, olive oil, lime, and salt in a blender and pulse until smooth. Add a small amount of water if required to get the mixture to blend. Once smooth, taste, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

To serve, place toasted French bread on plate. Top with baby greens and shaved radishes. Place salmon on top of radishes, skin side toward bread – to form an open-face sandwich. Spoon carrot and fennel salad onto plate as an accompaniment. Drizzle salmon with cilantro pesto and serve.
