Late summer is the ideal time for a trip to the Eastern seaboard, where this approachable 15-minute fish dinner gets its flavour inspiration. The fillets of salmon welcome a sprinkling of celery salt, bay leaves and warm spices before bronzing on the barbecue. Accompany them with a homey pasta salad that throws together bite-size morsels of grilled zucchini with peas and squiggles of al dente cavatappi, plus green sparkle from freshly chopped chives.

Boil the pasta & peas
Heat the BBQ on high, making sure to oil the grill first. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta; stir gently to separate. Boil, 8 to 10 min., until al dente. In the final min., add the peas. Drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Keep warm.
