This hot pescatarian plate gets a cool and creamy counterpoint in a dressing of cucumber, marinated scallion and labneh, which you’ll swoon over and then spoon over the different elements. Perfectly pink pan-seared salmon is the centrepiece, dusted in lemon-scented herbs and spices, joined by halved carrots that roast until they soften. All it takes is a roll in butter to give peas a pop of opulence, and all is served atop a bed of zesty bulgur.

Cook the bulgur
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the bulgur, ⅓ of the spices, 1 ⅓ cups water and a big pinch of salt (double the water and salt for 4 portions); bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 6 to 8 min., until the bulgur is tender and the water has been absorbed. Add a generous drizzle of olive oil; season generously with S&P. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
Small-dice the cucumber; transfer to a small bowl and season with S&P. Remove the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottom and green top. In a second small bowl, combine the white bottom of the scallion and vinegar.

Roast the carrots
Peel and halve the carrots lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, flipping halfway, 20 to 25 min., until tender.

Cook the salmon & peas
In a medium pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the salmon* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, 2 to 3 min. per side, until cooked as desired. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Heat the same pan on medium. Cook the peas, 2 tbsp water and 1 tbsp butter (double the water and butter for 4 portions), stirring constantly, 2 to 3 min., until coated. Set aside in a warm spot.
