Tonight, we’re giving our salmon extra-special flavor with a custom blend of warming spices, including two kinds of paprika. When seared, the smokiness of the spices deepens, balancing perfectly with sweet brown sugar. On the side, two summery preparations—hearty potato salad dressed with a creamy combination of Dijon mustard and mayonnaise, and crisp green beans tossed with a homemade vinaigrette—complete our refreshing warm weather dinner.

Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel and finely chop the shallot to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra); place in a small bowl with the juice of all 4 lemon wedges.
