Salmon, Mash & Steamed Broccoli
Serves: 2 Prep: 15 mins Cook: 25 mins
2 salmon fillets
2 rosemary sprigs
½ tsp minced garlic
½ a head broccoli
2-3 white potatoes
1 tsp butter
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 190C or 180C fan.
Steam the broccoli by placing in a steaming pot with a cm of water at the bottom. Bring to boil then turn down to a medium heat to a simmer and steam the broccoli for 20 mins.
Prepare 2 pieces of aluminum foil, big enough to enclose each salmon fillet into a parcel. Lay each salmon fillet on the foil sheets, use a teaspoon to spread ¼ tsp of minced garlic over each fillet. Slice a lemon finely and cover each fillet with 2 lemon slices. Lay a rosemary sprig on each of the salmon. Enclose each fillet in the foil forming a parcel.
Cook salmon in oven for 15-18 minutes or until no longer pink in thickest part of the fillet when cut open.
While the salmon cooks begin to prepare the mash. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1 cm cubes. Place in a pot of boiling water from the kettle and boil with the lid ajar for 12 mins or until soft enough to be poked with a fork. Drain the water, add the milk, butter, salt and pepper, then mash until smooth. Cover the pot with a lid until the rest of the food is prepared.
Assemble the salmon, mash and broccoli on a plate and serve immediately.
