From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Add the potatoes and cook for 8 minutes. Stir in the peas and continue cooking until the potatoes are tender, about 2 minutes longer.
Meanwhile, fill a large, deep frying pan with 3 inches of salted water. Bring to a simmer.
Add the salmon and simmer until the fish is just cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Transfer the salmon to paper towels to drain.
Cut or flake the salmon into bite-size pieces.
Chop enough of the fennel fronds to make 1 tablespoon. In a medium glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, chives, oil, lemon juice, chopped fennel fronds, salt, and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss the watercress with 1/4 cup of the dressing and put the greens on plates. In the same bowl, gently toss the potatoes and peas, the salmon, and the sliced fennel with the remaining dressing. Top the watercress with the potato-and-salmon mixture.
Wine Recommendation: In the Pacific Northwest, where salmon is king, its queen is pinot noir. The oiliness of the fish makes it strong enough to partner a light red, and the complex red-berry and spice notes of the pinot noir are an ideal foil for the flavor of the salmon.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc
Salmon works really well with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc. To decide on white or red, you should consider your seasoning and sauces. Chardonnay is a great friend to buttery, creamy dishes, while sauvignon blanc can complement herb or citrus-centric dishes. A light-bodied, low-tannin red such as the pinot noir goes great with broiled or grilled salmon. You could try Antica Chardonnay (Mountain Select). Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 29 dollars per bottle.
