Steamed Salmon with Broccoli Puree and Baby Potatoes

Steamed Salmon with broccoli puree and baby potatoes

This is one healthy meal. I don’t like broccoli very much when its whole but the puree was a trick! I incredibly love it! It was all mild flavors that needs some contrast to cut the mildness but a few freshly ground black pepper would do for me, but for hubby he added Tabasco sauce which was also great. The baby potatoes were quite a great substitute for rice for a change.


2 slices of salmon

2 bouquet of Broccoli

½ kg baby potatoes

Salt and pepper


Season broccoli and salmon with salt and pepper. Steam broccoli together with the salmon for 10 minutes.

While steaming the fish, boil baby potatoes in salted water for 10 minutes.

Strain the baby potatoes and cut in half. In a very hot non-stick pan, pan roast the potatoes until the sides turn dark brown. Add finely chopped parsley at the last minute.

Place the broccoli in a blender or food processor, add a little bit of water used to steam the fish and broccoli (the drippings from the fish adds flavor), blitz until fine.

Assemble the dish by placing the fish on top of the bed of green puree, alongside the baby potatoes.
