  • Meanwhile, place lemon slices on the bottom of a large skillet. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon ginger and 1 teaspoon garlic over the lemon slices. Season salmon with salt and pepper and place into the skillet. Pour in enough orange juice to just cover the lemon slices. Sprinkle 1/2 cup mint and remaining ginger and garlic on top of the salmon. Place broccolini on top. Cover the skillet.

  • Steam salmon over medium heat until no longer pink in the middle and flesh flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Transfer 5 tablespoons of the orange juice mixture from the skillet to a small bowl. Whisk in remaining mint and olive oil to make a vinaigrette.

  • Drain potatoes. Serve salmon fillets on a platter with potatoes, broccolini, and vinaigrette on the side.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute asparagus for the broccolini.
