Fried Salmon with Broccoli and Cheese

Carbs per serving 6g

INGREDIENTS

 
  • 450 g broccoli
  • 75 g butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 150 g grated cheddar cheese
  • 650 g salmon
  • 1 lime (optional)

 

Serves 4

METHOD:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut the broccoli into smaller florets and let simmer in lightly salted water for a couple of minutes. Make sure the broccoli maintains its chewy texture and delicate color.
  3. Drain the broccoli and discard the boiling water. Set aside, uncovered, for a minute or two to allow the steam to evaporate.
  4. Place the drained broccoli in a well-greased baking dish. Add butter and pepper to taste.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top of the broccoli and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese turns a golden color.
  6. In the meantime, season the salmon with salt and pepper and fry in plenty of butter, a few minutes on each side. The lime can be fried in the same pan or be served raw. This step can also be made on an outdoor grill.
