Honey-Mustard Crumbed Salmon with Garlic & Chilli Broccoli
This is a really nice way to cook salmon, and makes for an excellent simple weekday dinner idea. Why not give it a go?
FOR THE SALMON
4 x 125g salmon fillets
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey (1 big squeeze)
15g fresh parsley, finely chopped (you can also use 1tsp dried mixed herbs as a substitute)
Zest of 2 limes
1/4tsp black pepper
80g seasoned breadcrumbs
FOR THE CHILLI AND GARLIC BROCCOLI
1 head broccoli, cut into florets (or 200g tenderstem broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces)
1 bunch spring onions, finely sliced
1 red chilli, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Big pinch of salt
1 big squeeze of honey
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
Melt the butter in a large-ish frying pan over low-medium heat. Once completely melted, stir in the mustard, honey, salt and pepper followed by the parsley and lime zest.
Brush each salmon fillet with a small amount of this mixture.
To the remaining mixture in the pan, stir in the breadcrumbs until they are evenly coated.
Spoon the breadcrumbs on the top of each salmon fillet, pressing them in so they stick.
Bake the salmon for 12 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are starting to brown and the salmon has turned opaque.
Whilst your salmon bakes in the oven, prepare the broccoli.
Preheat some oil in the same frying pan you made the breadcrumbs in (this saves on washing up!) over a high heat. Add in your broccoli, spring onion, garlic and chilli. Stir fry for a good 4 minutes or so, until the broccoli starts to colour.
Reduce the heat and add in a splash of water. Cover, allowing the broccoli to steam for a further 4 minutes. Finish off by stirring in the honey.
All that's left to do now is take the salmon out of the oven and serve!
