Crispy Salmon, Spinach & Broccoli Supper

Serves4

A fab recipe for days when you want it prepped and on the table in 20 minutes.


About this recipe

Hands up who feels they never have enough time to cook dinner? *Puts both hands up* ;-)

This is a fab recipe for days when you want it prepped and on the table in 20 minutes, my kids wolf it down (which given how much greenery and salmon is in it, is a miracle!) and it's jammed-packed full of goodness.

I prefer to cook my salmon separately from the veg purely because I like it nice and crispy (the kids buy into it more when it's like that too) but you could just chop it up and add it before you add the veg, briefly fry it to seal, put it to one side and then add it back in at the end.

I also prefer skinless salmon but feel free to leave the skin on if your prefer it as it will crisp up nicely following this recipe – just make sure you put the salmon skin-side down when you start to cook it.

I serve this dish with a small amount of rice – not paleo I know but a once in a while treat. To make the dish primal, use wild rice or quinoa. To be strictly paleo, omit the rice and serve with sliced avocado instead.

Ingredients

4 salmon fillets, skin removed
1 tbsp Organic ghee Ghee (300g) Bulk Pack x 6
1/2 lime
1 head of broccoli, chopped into very small florets (you want them to cook quick)
1 very large handful of spinach
1 large thumb-size piece of ginger, chopped finely
4 cloves garlic, chopped finely
3 Tbsp Coconut Aminos (see above)
Rice (to serve – optional, avoid if 100% strictly Paleo)

Method

1. Put a kettle of water on.
2. Heat the ghee in a frying pan large enough to take the 4 salmon fillets, to a medium/high heat.
3. Once bubbling, add the salmon fillets and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side (only turn them once if you can to make sure you get really crispy outside, occasionally basting in the ghee if you can. Remove from heat and squeeze over the juice of 1/2 lime (be careful as it can spit so wait a few minutes after taking it off the heat).
4. Meanwhile, put the chopped broccoli florets into a colander and pour the boiling water over them (just to start the cooking process and ensure they cook quick once in the wok without burning).
5. Heat a small wok to a high heat and add the broccoli (adding a little water if they start charring), cook for 1-2 minutes, turning often.
6. Add the spinach to the wok and allow the spinach to wilt down, stirring constantly.
7. Add the garlic and ginger and stir constantly for 30 seconds.
8. Add the coconut aminos and allow to warm through for 30 seconds, stirring.
9. Serve the veg on a little rice (if using) and top with the crispy salmon.

Tips

You'll see Coconut Aminos in the ingredients list, which most people new to paleo or primal living go ‘eh?!' when you mention it! It's the sap from a coconut blended with a little sea salt. It's a replacement to soy sauce which apart from the high salt content, its soy and so one to avoid on a paleo / primal diet. It's really tasty, not as deep a flavour as soy sauce and I won't lie to you, it's not cheap so I tend to use it pretty sparingly. I use Coconut Secret, Raw Coconut Aminos (237 ml).

The health benefits from Coconut Aminos are plentiful – most well known for abundant levels of amino acids, it is also very low glycemic (GI of 35) and has beneficial levels of minerals, vitamin C, B vitamins and has an almost neutral pH. Oh and it's raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and soy free!
