From Lance Dean Velasquez, a 1996 Best New Chef, now at Johnfrank's in San Francisco.

  1. Kosher salt
  2. One 1-pound salmon fillet, with skin
  3. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  6. 1 garlic clove, minced
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 6 cups packed mesclun (3 ounces)
  9. 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  10. 1/2 cup Calamata olives, pitted and chopped
  11. 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  12. 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Spread a 1/4-inch layer of kosher salt on a small rimmed baking sheet. Nestle the salmon in the salt, skin side down. Bake for 15 minutes, or until just cooked through. Using a spatula, lift the fillet from the skin and break it into bite-size pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the oil with the vinegar, mustard and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Add the mesclun, tomatoes, olives, chives and basil and toss. Add the salmon; toss gently and serve.
