Delicate salmon and crispy, delicious broccoli are served with a fresh & tasty feta yogurt sauce. Healthy deliciousness, filled with omega-3, vitamin C and all other kinds of goodness! It's quick & easy enough for a weeknight dinner, and heats up really well if you want to bring it along for lunch. Healthy just got a lot tastier!
Set oven for 200 C/400 F and place a baking sheet on an oven tray.
Cut the broccoli florets into bite-size pieces and peel the stem. Slice the stem into slices a few millimeters thick. Place broccoli florets, sliced broccoli stem and sliced garlic in a bowl and mix with 3 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt and 0.5 tsp black pepper. Massage the broccoli with the oil and spice mixture until thoroughly oiled up, and then place it on the baking sheet.
Place the oven tray with the broccoli in the middle of the oven and cook for 20 minutes, turning once halfway. The broccoli should be browned and crispy, but not too burnt.
While the broccoli is cooking, make the Whipped Feta Cheese.
Lemon Pepper Salmon
With 10 minutes left on the broccoli, pat the salmon dry and season with the lemon pepper on all sides.
Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add in the butter or olive oil. Place the salmon filets in the pan and cook for 1.5 min on each of the four sides. Then take it off the heat and let it sit for 2 minutes before serving. The salmon should be a vibrant pink inside with a slightly raw or almost raw center.
Serve the lemon pepper salmon with the garlic roasted broccoli and feta yogurt sauce.
If you prefer to oven-bake your salmon (so easy! hands off! and all the flavor!) try this oven-baked lemon pepper salmon instead, but keep the Garlic Roasted Broccoli and Whipped Feta Cheese.
