Salmon and Broccoli Risotto

 Salmon is very rich in the healthy omega 3 fatty acids

which most of us need to eat more of. However I

know from speaking to a lot of my clients that

many of them are not that keen on fish or need

ideas to inspire them. This recipe combines the

fish with onion, brown rice and broccoli to make

a delicious meal that would tempt the most

ardent fish-hater!




Ingredients (serves 2)

1mug of brown rice

1 onion, peeled and finely chopped

1 bunch of fresh broccoli

Vegetable or fish stock (if you are gluten / dairy free then use gluten / dairy free stock

cubes or bouillon powder).

2 fillets of fresh salmon chopped into small bite size pieces

A little olive oil


1. Begin by gently frying the onion in the oil until it is soft and translucent.

2. Add the brown rice and cover with stock. Bring to the boil, cover the saucepan with

a lid and gently simmer for about 30-40 minutes or until rice is cooked. Keeep

checking on the risotto and adding additional stock if needed

3. While rice is cooking, gently steam broccoli until it is cooked.

4. Once rice is cooked, add the chopped salmon to the rice and cook until salmon is

done (about 5 minutes). Add the cooked broccoli, check seasoning, serve and enjoy!
