Recipe Challenge with Tenderstem Broccoli - Asian Salmon

We were recently asked to create some recipes using Tenderstem Broccoli. The recipes are inspired from cuisines from all over the world, and the aim is to use more Tenderstem broccoli in our food through quick and easy family-friendly recipes. 

This is the final blog post about Tenderstem - and I'll be honest I am a convert! You can read the first blog post here. They have some great recipes on their website so do check them out and let me know if you try a few out for yourself.

Asian Sticky Salmon with Tenderstem

We are big salmon fans, so I was delighted to get to try out a new recipe with salmon. We can get a bit boring and stick to new potatoes and veg, so this was great to try something new.

1. Mix the soy, sugar and mirin in a shallow dish. Add the salmon and marinade for 10 minutes to an hour. You can prep everything else while this is happening. 

2. Now you're going to do three things at once, but it's not that hard really.

3. Put a steamer over a pan of simmering water and heat a frying pan and a wok on a medium heat. Put the Tenderstem® and vegetables in the steamer and at the same time gently cook the ginger, garlic and half the chilli in a little oil in the wok and put the salmon, skin side up in the other pan. Don't throw the marinade away.

4. After two minutes, turn the salmon over and take as many of the vegetables out of the steamer as you need to feed grown ups and more adventurous eaters and add them to the pan with the garlic, ginger and chilli. Give it a good stir, season to your taste, put a lid on and leave on a low heat for another two minutes after which the salmon will be ready and the plain vegetables cooked. Put the salmon onto warm plates and pour the marinade into the pan to heat through while you are dividing out the spicy, seasoned vegetables and the plain steamed ones.  

5. Add the lime juice to the sauce, stir and pour over the salmon.  

6. Serve this with plain, brown rice or noodles. Put the chopped coriander and a little dish of chopped chilli on the table to add as you wish.

This was very easy to make. It did not take a lot of preparation at all and was really very nice. We served the salmon with brown rice and just served it all mixed on the plates. This went down really well. The kids also tried it, although I think I will have to try them again with this - maybe I used too much chili - oops!

I was given vouchers by Tenderstem to purchase the ingredients for recipes. This blog post is part of a series, more to follow. All words and views are my own.
