When I make aspargus I add sun dried tomato strips, pine nuts and garlic and sautee until done, but still crisp. Another really great veggie are Chinese pea pods. You can sautee them in a bit of EVOO and add water chestnuts for some extra crunch. My children love these (they are the only green veggie they eat). Another really easy one is edamame (soy beans in the shell). All you do is steam the pods (I buy mine frozen) and add a sprinkle of Kosher salt. Kids love to pop the beans out of the pods and into their mouths. And I like the soy estrogen benefit for my hot flashes!

How are you preparing the salmon? I have a recipe that makes a wonderful one dish presentation. Take plum tomatoes and seed and cube them. Set aside. Take one vadallia onion and finely chop, sautee them until slightly browned. Add one chopped fennel (looks like large bulby celery), carrots, clelery and tomatoes. Place the salmon, skin side down, on top of the veggies. Add enough dry white wine to cover. You can use chicken stock if you prefer. Cover the skillet and gently simmer until salmon is done. Salt and pepper to taste. Depending on thickness, this can take up to 15 minutes. Serve on a platter with veggies and sauce spooned over top.

edited: sorry, I see that you are preparing grilled salmon. Have you ever tried making it on a cedar or hickory plank? It makes for the most wonderful slightly smokey flavored fish. You can buy planks at most gourmet supply stores like Williams and Sonoma. I have found them at Bed Bath and Beyond and Macy's too. They are really nice and a bit you don't have to worry about the fish falling apart before you serve. I just bring in the plank and put it down on a larger dish.
