Lemon Sesame Salmon with Broccoli & Shitake Mushrooms
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 15 mins (depends on fish size)
What you need:
1 fillet of wild salmon with skin (watch out for bones! Wild salmon can sometimes have them) You can use farm raised salmon too, but it’s usually more processed/ lower quality.
1/2 cup of broccoli
¼ cup of mushrooms (I like shitake, but any kind should work!)
A LOT of fresh garlic (I use it to taste throughout this whole recipe, so It’s up to you how much you want to use!)
Marinade the salmon while you prepare everything else (10-15 mins)
In a bowl, cover the salmon in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic salt, pepper, & fresh garlic. (*TIP*- I use a generous amount of everything because I use the leftover marinade to cook my veggies in!)
2. Chop broccoli florets to size of your liking
3. Chop mushrooms into thin slices
In a 12 inch non-stick pan, on medium heat, cook salmon skin down. It will sit skin side down for majority of its cook time. I only like to flip my salmon at the very end to give it a little crisp on top. Cook time will will vary on size of fillet.
Once the fillet is almost cooked through, turn down heat a little, and add veggies & drizzle a little more marinade on the broccoli.(I added a little more garlic too but I’m crazy and can’t get enough lol)
Keep an eye of everything & once its done, SERVE!
Dress with some lemon juice, sesame oil, & sesame seeds to taste (or even some more garlic!!)
Bon Appetit! Additional Recipes COMING!
