So simple and quick. I used Light Soy sauce so as not to overpower the delicate flavours of the salmon and broccoli and the result was delicious.

This was really tasty, added sesame oil, ginger and bit of chilli for more flavour. Steamed the broccoli for a few minutes too. It was light and husband liked it a lot!

I was worried this might be a bit bland, so sprinkled a handful of chopped fresh chili and ginger over the salmon before baking. I also added a drizzle of honey with the soy sauce for a little sweetness. I like my broccoli crunchy and roasted, so the cooking time worked really well for me! Really easy and quick recipe for a midweek meal.

I wish I had read the comments before cooking, that way I would have pre-cooked my broccoli! I thought the lemon was slightly overpowering and it needed more soy sauce. Very easy though, and you can't really go wrong with salmon.

Just made this and it was delicious. Ridiculously quick and easy to put together. Served mine with cous cous and topped with a little cream cheese on top. Didn't pre cook the broccoli as I like it quite crunchy, but if you prefer your veg softer you will definitely need to pre cook it!

I pre-cooked the broccoli. I agree it is bland, but it is very easy.

Probably the blandest most boring thing I've ever cooked, we threw it in the bin and ate cereal

What a disgusting waste when some people can't even afford to eat salmon.

Pre cooked the broccoli and added some chilli flakes to the oil. A beautiful summer time dinner!

I added chilli flakes to the salmon to give it a bit of bite, delicious!

Really lovely. I did parboil the broccoli and added cherry tomatoes and garlic. Also I cooked it all wrapped up in foil. Thank you for the recipe

Great flavours, but ended up microwaving the broccoli because, despite being new season tenderstem, it was rock hard. I did also put some asparagus in and that cooked beautifully alongside the salmon. So next time I'll stick with asparagus in season and/or parboil the broccoli.

Broccoli like rubber. Needs to be part cooked prior to adding to recipe

Delicious. I made a few changes: I parboiled the broccoli as per recommendations here; I chopped a chilli and stirred it into the olive oil before drizzling it over; and I left out the lemon (accidentally!).

I'd say the cooking time wants to come down a little bit - maybe by around 2-4 mins - as the salmon was rather overcooked. it tasted fantastic though, and was very filling. Thank you!

Very tasty and quick for a mid week supper. I have found that it's best to par boil the broccoli for about three minutes first though or it doesn't cook well.

I agree that the broccoli should be cooked seperately. As should the green onions for that matter. Mine got very very brown. The salmon tasted quite good but there are other salmon recipes which are better.
