  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C), preferably using the broiler setting.
  2. 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 color.
  3. Place the drained broccoli in a well-greased baking dish. Add butter and pepper to taste.
  4. Sprinkle cheese on top of the broccoli and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese turns a golden color.
  5. Fry the salmon in plenty of butter, 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.

    Do you mean "broil" the fish, which usually means cooking in an oven under the direct heat of the broiler element?

    Or do you mean sautéing in a frying pan on a stove top as the description seems to indicate?

    This would be my exact question as well. Is the salmon fried in butter while the broccoli is broiled?

    No, they mean par-boil the broccoli then put it in the over at 400 with butter, black pepper and cheese for 15 min.

    Pan fry salmon separately in butter.
