Steam-roasted salmon and broccoli

I have recently discovered Rukmini Iyer’s new book ‘The Roasting Tin’.   I can’t recommend this book highly enough as it is full of tasty, easy, generally quick, nutritious meals.

So I wanted to share my current favourite recipe with you.  If this wets your appetite I recommend you buy the book (this isn’t an ad!).  It’s available here:

Steam-roasted salmon & broccoli with lime, ginger chilli & garlic.

This recipes serves 4 but I add lots more vegetables on the side so I have a colourful plate!

400g broccoli – cut into small florets

2 cloves of garlic – grated

2 tbsp of sesame/veg oil

4 salmon fillets

2 spring onions – chopped

2.5cm ginger – grated

1 red chilli – finely sliced

2 tbsps fish sauce

4 tbsp veg oil

2 limes – zest and juice

1 – Preheat the oven to 180c fan/220c/gas 6.  Place the broccoli florets in a  large roasting tin, scatter over the garlic, sprinkle over the oil and toss well to mix.

2 – Place the salmon fillets into the roasting tin along with the broccoli, cover the tin tightly with foil, transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the salmon is cooked.

3 – Meanwhile, mix the spring onions, ginger, chilli, fish sauce, veg oil, lime zest and juice and coriander.

This is my version! Looked pretty much like the pic in the book….but not a great photo!

4 – Removed the salmon and broccoli from the oven, and generously coat the salmon with the dressing. Drizzle the remaining over the broccoli and serve.
