Salmon - Broccoli Puree Recipe

Updated: May 12

My Favorite Ballerina Receipt: Soft, Light & Flavory Broccoli Puree with Fried Salmon in Garlic-Honey-Soy Sauce.

Eating healthy, keeps you happy!
Healthy, yummy, juicy, low calorie, high protein and easy to prepare!

I discovered this receipt a few years ago and since then I'm totally in love with it! This light, flavorful dish has become one of my most preferred dinner choices over the past 2 years. It's also Rene's favorite meal, and I've cooked it so often, that I could probably make it in my sleep!

One of the joys of cooking is being able to improvise, so sometimes I like to vary between normal potatoes and sweet potatoes. Sometimes I enjoy playing around a bit and I adjust the recipe depending on what I prefer each time. They both taste delicious within this combination.

Salmon has been of my favorite ballerina meat choices hence it's packed with so many nutrients, it has anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, it's a super brain booster, it's known to be a "heart-healthy" fat choice and besides that is is a low calorie, high protein meal!
