Salmon with Peas and Broccoli

20140318-191044.jpgHoly shit I’m posting a recipe.

It’s almost April and this is the first one this year. I’m sure everyone loves the adorable kid pictures, but I still attempt(and fail a lot more often) to cook good food. I may not have pulled out my camera to photograph it well, but this dish was good enough to share. It was simple and delicious. And cooked perfectly. The kid devoured it. The photo is mama and toddler food, and she ate that entire little plate, plus two more. It may have had something to do with the sauce I’m guessing. Anything cheese, sour cream, yogurt or mayonnaise based(all of which she calls neng-neng)gets gobbled up in seconds.

Salmon with Peas and Broccoli

4 salmon filets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup fresh or frozen green peas
1 cup broccoli fresh or frozen florets
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon milk or cream
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper

1. Heat a large skillet(I used cast iron, we use it for everything) over medium high heat. In a large pot bring heat water to boil. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to skillet and add salmon, being careful of placement as you wont be able to move it for a bit without damaging the fish. Cook until fish begins to release from pan, about 3-4 minutes depending on thickness. Add peas and broccoli to boiling water. They will be done in 2-4 minutes along with your fish. Meanwhile make the sauce. Whisk together mayonnaise, lime juice, milk or cream and dill. Drain the peas and broccoli and top with fish. Add butter to hot pan to melt and drizzle over fish.
