Serves: 4



400g broccoli, cut into small florets

2 cloves of garlic, grated

2 tbsp sesame/ vegetable oil

4 salmon fillets (approx. 800g total)

2 spring onions, finely chopped

2 1/2 cm ginger, grated

1 red chilli, finely sliced

2 tbsp fish sauce

4 tbsp vegetable oil

2 limes, zest and juice

30g fresh coriander, finely chopped

55g peanuts, roughly chopped



Preheat the oven to 180°C fan/200°C/ gas 6. Place the broccoli florets in a large roasting tin, scatter over the grated garlic, sprinkle over the oil and toss well to mix.

Pop the salmon fillets into the roasting tin along with the broccoli, cover the tin tightly with foil, then transfer to the oven and bake for 20–25 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through to your liking.

Meanwhile, mix together the spring onions, ginger, chilli, fish sauce, vegetable oil, lime zest and juice, coriander and peanuts. Taste and adjust the levels of fish sauce and lime juice as you wish.

Remove the cooked salmon and broccoli from the oven and generously coat the salmon with dressing. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the broccoli, and serve immediately.
