Sometimes the simple things in life can be the best. This easy recipe is proof to this statement.
Makes 4 servings.
What do you need?
500 grams of minced salmon (I buy it in the frozen products section)
2 packets (=2*400 grams) of frozen broccoli
salt, pepper and fish seasoning
How to make it?
First of all, take your salmon and broccoli out of the fridge some hours before cooking. I usually take mine out the night before or in the morning if I’m making this for dinner.
Get cooking! Take a pot with water and get that boiling. Also, preheat a pan to medium high heat.
Once the water is boiling, add in some salt and the broccoli. Let that cook until the broccoli is nice and soft.
Meanwhile, your pan is ready to fry the salmon. Add in your minced salmon and season with salt, pepper and fish seasonings (I buy a salt-less herb mixture for fish at my grocery store, it should be available in most stores). Break up the salmon, so that there are no big lumps. I find that there is a lot of fat in the minced salmon and I don’t need any oil for cooking it.
Drain your broccoli and add to the salmon. Mix really well and let everything heat through for another 5 minutes or so. Now your dish is ready to be served.
