Ingredients

  • 1 ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
  • thumb-sized piece ginger, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into wedges
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 boneless skinless salmon fillets
  • 250g purple sprouting broccoli
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced (deseeded if you don't like it too hot)

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
