  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C. Line a sheet pan with foil and place salmon, skin-side down on top. Pat dry and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  2. Bake salmon until it flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 25 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon and your desired doneness (1 ½” / 3.75 cm thick salmon takes about 20 minutes).
  3. While salmon cooks, divide dressing in half. Whisk first half of dressing with honey and, when salmon is done cooking, drizzle over salmon.
  4. Whisk second half of dressing with olive oil. Combine fennel, radicchio, oranges, beans and mint leaves. Just before serving, toss salad in dressing.
  5. Serve salmon with salad on the side and enjoy!
