I made these two dishes tonight for dinner. Both were terrific. Taking advantage of the plethora of fresh herbs. I stir fried some fresh Hadley asparagus with salmon and poured sauce over both fish and asparagus. I cooked salmon in a Calphalon frying pan and used domed lid for old wok. It did indeed get both grill marks and moistness of steaming. Cool.

NOTES : We found that fish cooks best on a nonstick grill pan with a dome-shaped lid, so the fish steams while it gets great grill marks. Serve with a tossed green salad and couscous.
