Crispy Salmon with Herb Salad

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

Rest salmon fillets atop fresh herbs tossed with a light lemon dressing. Because they're left whole, use small basil and mint leaves; if you have only large leaves, tear them in half. Refrigerate the herb mixture before preparing the salmon so it won't wilt.
