  • 1½ lbs 700 g salmon
  • 2 oz. 50 g butter
  • 1 lb 450 g broccoli
  • salt and pepper

  • 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix mayonnaise and lemon juice. Set aside for later.
  2. Divide the salmon into serving-sized pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Fry the salmon in half the butter over medium heat for a couple of minutes on each side. Lower the heat towards the end. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  4. Rinse and trim the broccoli, including the stem. Chop into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Add the remaining butter to the same skillet and cook the broccoli over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until it is slightly softened and golden brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve the fried salmon and broccoli together with a hearty dollop of lemon mayo.

Tip!

Feel free to substitute crème fraîche for the mayo. A drizzle of hollandaise or cowboy sauce are also delicious ways to add healthy fat to this one-skillet wonder!
