4 salmon fillets, skin removed
1 lemon finely sliced
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper

Pea & Broccoli Mash

2 heads broccoli, cut into small florets
300g frozen peas
1-2 cloves garlic
1 onion, finely diced
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste


Pea & Broccoli Mash

Place olive oil, diced onion and crushed garlic in a large saucepan and saute over medium heat until onion is translucent.
Add broccoli florets and cover pot to allow the broccoli to steam.
After 5 minutes add frozen peas and cover again to allow broccoli and peas to cook through.
When broccoli and peas have cooked through and softened, remove pot from heat and mash all ingredients together using a stick blender.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
