August 10, 2022


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil, plus some sprigs, for garnish

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon, plus some sprigs, for garnish

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Four 4-ounce skinless salmon fillets, each about 1-inch thick

Four 1/2-inch-thick round slices (rings) of pineapple, preferably fresh

Avocado Dressing, recipe follows

Avocado Dressing:

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon

1/8 teaspoon anchovy paste, optional

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 small clove garlic, smashed

1/2 avocado, diced


  1. Set a gas or charcoal grill to high heat or place a grill pan over the heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, salt, pepper, chopped basil, chives, and tarragon. Slices of pineapple and salmon are brushed with the herb mixture.
  3. Cook the salmon for 4 minutes on each side, or until it is just opaque throughout. Cook the pineapple for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until it is slightly browned.
  4. Place a pineapple slice on each plate, then place a piece of salmon on top of it with a tiny overlap. Each piece of fish should have 2 tablespoons of avocado dressing on it. Serve the dish garnished with basil and tarragon sprigs.

Avocado Dressing:

  1. In a food processor, combine the avocado, lemon juice, basil, chives, olive oil, tarragon, salt, pepper, anchovy paste, if using, and olive oil. Process until smooth after adding 2 tablespoons of water. To allow the flavors to meld, leave the dressing covered for at least 15 minutes and up to an hour.
