Chickpeas are commonly incorporated into stews, adding their own brand of nuttiness and chewy contrast, plus extra satisfying heft. Here it's combined with salmon that's been grilled and then shredded and the usual herbs and spices, and is topped with hard boiled eggs cut into wedges when serving. It's remarkably fast, taking a mere five minutes to allow the flavors to meld, meaning you can make it any day of the week.
