Preparation steps

1.

Rinse and trim the broccoli and divide into florets. Blanch in boiling salted water for 4 minutes, drain, rinse and drain well. Peel the garlic and chop finely. Peel the ginger and grate finely. Rinse the salmon fillet, pat dry, season with salt and pepper and roll in sesame seeds.

2.

Preheat the oven to 210°F.

3.

Heat the coconut oil in a pan and saute the salmon until golden brown on the skin side, then flip and saute until the second side is also brown. Another option would be to place the salmon in an ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oil in the wok and fry the garlic and ginger. Add the broccoli and chili threads, deglaze with the broth and season with salt, pepper and lime juice. Arrange the broccoli on plates, top with two salmon slices and serve with a lime wedge.
