  1. Step 1

    In a medium bowl, mix the oil, coriander, tarragon, garlic, vinegar, 3/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Set chimichurri sauce aside.
  2. Step 2

    Season salmon with salt. In a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, add the extra oil and then salmon, skin-side down. Cook for 5 mins or until the skin is crisp. Turn salmon over and cook for 2-3 mins or until it is mostly opaque with a rosy centre.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, in another large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook, stirring, for 4 mins or until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a plate. Add the carrots and sugar snap peas to the pan. Season with salt and sauté for 2 mins or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Return the bacon to the pan and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt.
  4. Step 4

    Spoon vegetable mixture over platter. Top with salmon. Spoon chimichurri over salmon and serve.
