Baked Salmon & Broccoli Mash

After a weekend of eating pretty poorly I was ready for something more on the healthy side. Salmon and broccoli mash did just the trick! I had never made broccoli mash before and I was very happy to find it was delicious and will definitely make it again!

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 oranges (juiced)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 scallions (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp red chili pepper (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced) 
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds (toasted)
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 2 salmon filets (skin on)
  • non-stick cooking spray

  • Mix together all of the ingredients except the salmon. Place the salmon in the marinade and cover in the fridge for 2 hours
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  • Remove salmon from the fridge while oven is preheating. Transfer salmon to the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until done. 

Broccoli Mash
  • 3 large bunches broccoli
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • salt 
  • pepper

  • Steam 3 large bunches of broccoli in a pot with water until tender
  • Saute 4 cloves of garlic in a pan with olive oil and butter, until golden
  • Add broccoli, garlic with oils, 1 cup of ricotta cheese to a blender or food processor and season with salt and pepper to taste. Blend to consistency of mashed potatoes. 

Served with pillbury crescent rolls...because I love them!!
