  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced (deseeded if you don't like it too hot)

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180 fan/ gas 6 and line a baking tray with parchment. Mix together 1/2 tbsp sesame oil, the soy, ginger, garlic and honey. Put the sweet potato wedges, skin and all, into a glass bowl with the lime wedges. Cover with cling film and microwave on high for 12-14 mins until completely soft.

  2. Meanwhile, spread the broccoli and salmon out on the baking tray. Spoon over the marinade and season. Roast in the oven for 10-12 mins, then sprinkle over the sesame seeds.

  3. Remove the lime wedges and roughly mash the sweet potato using a fork. Mix in the remaining sesame oil, the chilli and some seasoning. Divide between plates, along with the salmon and broccoli.

One of my favourite recipes! Like other comments suggest I microwave the broccoli for a bit first. As we are cutting down on carbs I use roasted butternut squash mash instead of sweet potato mash.

We tried this recipe for the first time yesterday, as given except for using Tenderstem broccoli as there was no purple sprouting broccoli available and roasting @ 200 C fan for 12 minutes as we usually do for salmon fillets. We were really impressed by the results and will definitely cook this recipe again, although next time we will add the broccoli later as it was very crispy after 12 minutes. We squeezed the juice from the lime wedges into the sweet potatoes after microwaving/before roughly mashing and adding the other ingredients.

Yum. I steamed broccoli for two minutes in the microwave first. I used olive oil as a had no sesame oil. Lemon as I had no limes. And added some sliced carrot and courgette to the roasting tray. It was absolutely delicious. Hubby loved it. I'll definitely add this to my favourite makes. So easy too.

Delicious dish! The salmon came out beautifully moist. Used normal broccoli, steamed for 6 or 7 mins before adding it to the roasting tray for 10-12 mins (after reading other reviews). The sweet potato and worked wonderfully! Restaurant quality. Will definitely make again.

Lovely fish and good tasting marinade, but didn't get the undercooked 'roasted' broccoli,which would have been much nicer just steamed. The sweet potato mash was also disappointing and didn't taste of the lime at all.

Lovely marinade and the salmon and sweet potato were a success. I also used lemon and it tasted great. The broccoli however was ok. I used purple sprouting broccoli as recipe suggested and it was undercooked following the cooking instructions according to this recipe. Next time I think I will par boil or steam the broccoli first then roast it.

Great taste, super easy and quick. The sweet potato mash was a winner, although I used lemon as didn't have any lime. Broccoli not so successful, although I used sprigs of normal broccoli, but it dried out. Maybe needs to be well coated with oil rather than just drizzled with marinade. One to do again.
