  1. In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of the seasoning, 1 teaspoon of the oil plus lemon zest and one-third of the minced garlic. Brush on fillets.
  2. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to high (400°F–450°F). Place fillets, skin side down, on grill. Grill 8–10 minutes, without turning, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove from grill; cover and keep warm.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet bring 2 cups water to boiling over medium-high heat. Add broccolini; reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes. Transfer broccolini to a large bowl of cold water.
  4. Discard cooking water from skillet. Return skillet to medium-high heat; add remaining oil. Add shallot and remaining 1/2 teaspoon seasoning; cook 2 minutes or until shallot is softened. Add tomatoes and remaining garlic; cook 2 minutes or until tomato skins begin to shrivel. Return broccolini to skillet; add vinegar and remaining lemon juice. Cook and stir 1–2 minutes or until heated through. Serve with salmon.
  5. Serving Suggestion: steamed white or brown rice
