Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs fresh salmon
  • 1 lb broccoli
  • spray coconut oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 to 4 fresh limes optional
  • 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C), use broiler setting.
  • Cut the broccoli into smaller florets and let simmer in lightly salted water for a couple of minutes. Make sure the broccoli maintains its chewy texture and delicate colour.
  • Drain the broccoli and discard the boiling water. Set aside, uncovered, for a minute or two to allow the steam to evaporate.
  • Place the drained broccoli in a baking dish that has been spray with coconut oil. Add pepper to taste.
  • Sprinkle cheese on top of the broccoli and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese turns a golden color.
  • While vegetables bake, season the salmon with salt and pepper and fry in coconut oil using a nonfat stick, a few minutes on each side. The lime can be fried in the same pan or be served raw. This step can also be made on an outdoor grill.
  • TIPS:
    You can substitute the broccoli for other vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, green beans or asparagus with little to no change to the amount of carbs in the dish.
    If you want to use another kind of fish we primarily recommend other fatty fishes such as trout or mackerel but you can also go with white fish if you prefer.
    If you don't like cheddar you can use a mix of different cheeses. Half mozzarella and half parmesan will be just as good!
    The amount of coconut oil used and additional of cheese affect the listed fat content of this yummy meal.
