Salmon and Broccoli Bowl : Dairy Free

Meals really don't have to be served on a plate ... this one works well in a bowl! This delicious salmon recipe bursts with flavour. It is full of healthy fats, and could make you a perfect midweek meal. Read on and see what you think ...

Serves One
1 small swede/ turnip, peeled and diced
½ head broccoli, cut into florets
1 tin salmon in springwater or 100g (3 ½ oz) fresh salmon fillet, skinned and de-boned
125ml (4 fl oz/ ½ cup) almond or coconut milk
freshly cracked black pepper, to taste


1. Cook the *swede/turnip (see tip) and broccoli in a saucepan of boiling water for 8 – 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.

2. If using fresh salmon, put the salmon in a small frying pan over medium heat and pour over the almond milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 7 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked.

3. Place the salmon, with the almond milk it was cooked in, and the cooked vegetables in a food processor and pulse to your desired consistency. If you prefer a smoother consistency, add more almond milk. If you prefer a chunkier version, omit the processing step and simply mix everything together in a bowl... see note below.

4. Serve with a grind of black pepper - it just adds to the taste!

A chunkier version is good, but see for yourself which you'd prefer!

* Needs to be tender - so do check

It looks really comforting being served in a bowl, it's like the soup in a mug concept.

We eat dinner out of a bowl a LOT. I call them rice bowls. Whole grain rice, sauteed vegetables, spices and whatever meat was leftover from the night before.

Thanks so much for all your thoughts and comments:
This salmon dish with broccoli is low in carbs and by using either Turnip or Swede ... which is sometimes known as Rutabaga or Neeps keeps the choice of vegetables all Low Carb.

Is the almond milk for taste or tenderizing?

We've had the last of our summer squash. Had an end of the garden stir fry last night, seasoned with low sodium soy and fresh pepper from the garden, mmmm. When I cook the green tomatoes the garden will be through for this year. We've had a killing frost.

Oh, I wish we could get fresh salmon.

Have a blessed week.

Hello Gail
You asked "Is the almond milk for taste or tenderizing?"
Almond milk is used here as a dairy free option to poach the salmon so it will tenderise and add a slight taste. This recipe could be adapted to using full cream milk if preferred.

You have done well with all your garden vegetables - you can't beat home grown!

Enjoy your week

All the best Jan

I was looking for some at least frozen wild caught salmon today. None to be found.

Hi Jan - I don't know how else to reach you so I thought I'd write you here. My blog is closed for a little bit because of some spam-like stuff. Though the blog will read, invite only, that's a lie. It's really just closed for a wee bit. Blogger didn't have a, CLOSED FOR A WEE BIT, sign.

Anyway, if you click my profile web address, that will take you to where I am now, on G+. But I'll be back to regular blogging soon too.

Happy Eating!
