  • 1 medium fennel bulb thinly sliced
  • 1 blood or navel orange very thinly sliced, seeds removed
  • 1 Meyer or regular lemon very thinly sliced, seeds removed
  • 1 jalapeno pepper small diced, with seeds
  • 6 sprigs dill plus more per serving
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 2-pound salmon fillet skinless
  • 2 teaspoons fish seasoning Pritikin Fish Seasoning or other no-salt fish seasoning
