Broiled Salmon with Tomato Cream Sauce

Serves 4
1½ cups frozen lima beans
1½ cups frozen peas
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
4 6-ounce center-cut salmon fillets (preferably wild)
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons tomato paste
¼ cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon, parsley or dill

Preheat the broiler. Combine the lima beans and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat; bring  to a simmer, then cover and cook until almost tender, about 7 minutes. Add the peas, ¼ teaspoon salt, and  pepper to taste; cover and cook until the peas and beans are tender, about 5 more minutes. Drain and return to the pan. Add 1 tablespoon butter and the parsley; stir to coat.

Meanwhile, put the salmon skin-side down on a baking sheet lined with foil; season lightly with salt and  pepper. Broil until browned on top, 6 to 8 minutes.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in another saucepan over medium heat; add the shallot and cook until  translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and boil until reduced by half, about 2 more minutes. Stir in the  tomato paste, then add the heavy cream and ¾ cup water and simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes; stir in the herbs. Drizzle over the salmon and serve with the bean mixture.
