Instructions

Salmon

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Place the salmon fillets in a baking dish. Combine the melted butter (or olive oil) with lemon juice. Pour over the salmon.
  3. Season with salt, ground black pepper, and any other seasoning of choice. Chives or dill work very well in this recipe.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the salmon flakes with a fork but is still moist inside.
  5. Cauliflower mash

  6. Cut the cauliflower into florets.
  7. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the cauliflower and boil for a couple of minutes – just enough so the florets are tender but retain a slightly firm texture. Drain the cauliflower in a colander, and discard the water.
  8. Add the cauliflower to a food processor (or use an immersion blender) along with the Parmesan cheese and butter. Pulse until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
