A recipe for a quick salmon and broccoli bake. Click on the photo to view a pictorial version of the recipe.


Salmon – flaked
Broccoli Florets
Creme Fraiche
White Wine
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

First steam the broccoli until tender. Then transfer to a roasting dish.

Dice an onion, a few mushrooms and gently brown in some olive oil. Add some white wine so that there is some liquid in the pan. If you prefer not to use alcohol just put in a bit of stock, or other liquid of your own choice.

Grate some cheese and add it to the pan. I find that it is best to use a mixture. Stronger cheeses and blue cheeses are always good. Here I used some old strong cheese, cheddar and parmesan.

Stir in some creme fraiche. A couple of table spoons is enough.

Spray a little olive oil on some salmon pieces, sprinkle with salt, pepper and some fennel seeds. Wrap in tin foil and place in a hot oven for 10-12 minutes, or until nice and soft. Don’t over cook the salmon as it is going back in the oven! I normally set the oven to about 180.

Once the salmon is nice and tender take it out of the oven and flake it.

Mix the salmon in with the broccoli in the baking tray.

Add the liquid from the pan so that it spreads over all the broccoli and salmon. Sprinkle some more grated cheese over the dish and put in a hot oven for 10-20 minutes. I normally set the oven to about 180.

The finished result plated with some Austrian style red cabbage and all ready to eat!
