Cook Time
15 minutes
  • 1 Cup cored and matchstick cut fennel, about 1/2 medium bulb, plus 2-tablespoons chopped fronds
  • 1 celery stalk, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1/2 granny smith apple, cored and matchstick cut
  • 1/4 Cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp honey
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 (5oz) salmon fillets
  • 11 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 slices focaccia, cut to size of salmon fillets or slices of sourdough bread
  1. Preheat broiler to high and arrange rack 8-inches from broiler. Line a rimmed sheet pan with foil and set aside.

  2. Combine the first 3 ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. In a small jar with a tight fitting lid, combine sour cream, cider vinegar, 1-teaspoon honey, poppy seeds, lemon zest and juice. Cover with lid and shake until well blended. Pour sour cream mixture over fennel mixture and stir to thoroughly coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  3. Brush olive oil over salmon, season generously with salt and pepper and transfer to prepared sheet pan. Drizzle remaining 1-tablespoon honey over tops of fillets, place under broiler and cook until opaque in centre, about 5 minutes. Toast bread while salmon is cooking and transfer to plates. Place slaw on top of bread and arrange salmon on top.
