Nutritional values

Salmon is a brainfood in a class of its own: its abundant omega-3 fatty acids make the nerve cells more powerful, thus increasing concentration and memory performance. Capsaicin from chili gives the metabolism a boost and can boost fat burning - really clever!

As a side dish, whole grain basmati rice goes very well with the oven baked salmon with broccoli. If you can't get broccoli, simply replace the vegetables with the same amount of regular broccoli.

Preparation steps


Wash salmon fillet and pat dry. Peel garlic and ginger and roughly dice both. Clean and wash the chili pepper and cut it into rings. In a dish, mix soy sauce with fish sauce, rice syrup, chili paste, toasted sesame oil, and 2 tablespoons of regular sesame oil. Add garlic, ginger, and chili and mix well. Add salmon fillet and marinate covered in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning once.


Meanwhile, clean, wash and cook broccolini in salted water for 1-2 minutes, then drain, rinse and drain.


Remove salmon fillet from marinade and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Mix marinade with sesame seeds, drizzle over salmon and bake in preheated oven at 200 °C / 400˚ F for about 10 minutes.


Briefly remove salmon from oven, place broccolini stems around salmon and drizzle stems with remaining oil. Cook everything in the oven for another 5-10 minutes. Remove and serve salmon with the vegetables.
