Honey marinated salmon with broccoli salad

Sunday, February 05, 2017

Hi, how are you today? We have been making this kind of meal quite a few times separately the salmon and salad, but never mixing them and serving together. Although quite honestly this is delicious how they complement each other and you just keep on wanting to eat more! 

The recipe contains amazing juicy salmon, coated with honey and mustard glaze, it is at the same time sweet and a little bit bitter. But in our opinion the plate is overtaken by one of our favourite salads, made with broccoli. It's an amazing green and full of vitamin C vegetable, a source of high amount of calcium and magnesium. If you don't like the taste of it on it's own you may like it in this combination with light creamy sauce and amazing toppings - toasted flaked almonds and cranberries that give sweet and crunchy addition. 

Actually by cooking broccoli in water they lose some of their nutrients you can add them raw, but definitely washed before hand, or they are also great steamed or stir fried. Doesn't that sound amazing? Well, we hope you will enjoy making and of course eating this dish, so let's get onto the recipe.
