instructions

 
For lemon brodetto:
Warm the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté until tender, about 7 minutes. Add the lemon juice, zest, and broth. Bring to a simmer, and keep warm, covered, over low heat.
For white bean puree:
Combine the beans, mint, salt, and chili flakes in a food processor and puree. With the machine running, add the olive oil in a steady drizzle. Add the Parmesan cheese and pulse to combine. Set aside.
For salmon:
Warm the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over high heat. Season the salmon pieces with salt and pepper. Sear the salmon until a golden crust forms, about 4 to 5 minutes on the first side. Flip the fish and continue cooking until medium-rare, about 2 minutes more depending on the thickness of the fish.
For assembly:
Add the tablespoon of chopped mint to the lemon brodetto, and divide between 4 shallow dishes. Place a large spoonful of bean puree into the center of each bowl. Place a salmon piece atop each mound of bean puree. Serve immediately.
