  1. 3 medium zucchini, cut into half moon slices
  2. 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) cherry tomatoes
  3. 1/2 lb (250 g) green beans, trimmed
  4. 3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil, divided
  5. 2 tsp (10 mL) finely grated lemon zest
  6. 3/4 tsp (4 mL) each salt and pepper, divided
  7. 1 1/2 lb (750 g) salmon fillet portions
  8. 1 pkg (500 g) bow-tie pasta
  1. 1/3 cup (75 mL) olive oil
  2. 1/4 cup (60 mL) red wine vinegar
  3. 3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped fresh chives, divided
  4. 2 cloves garlic, minced

Method

  1. Toss zucchini, cherry tomatoes and green beans with 2 tbsp oil, lemon zest and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Place half the mixture in center of a large sheet of heavy-duty foil. Bring edges of foil together to create a tightly sealed packet. Repeat with remaining vegetables. Brush salmon with remaining oil and season with remaining salt and pepper. 
  2. Place vegetable packets on preheated medium-high grill, cook, covered, for 10 to 15 min. or until vegetables are tender-crisp. Grill salmon for 4 to 5 min. per side or until just cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile cook pasta according to package directions and drain. In a bowl, make vinaigrette by whisking together olive oil, red wine vinegar, 2 tbsp chives, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss pasta with vegetables and vinaigrette. Flake salmon into pasta mixture. Toss gently to combine. Garnish with remaining chives.
