Basic one pan tuna & broccoli with coriander & lemon


Healthy One Pan Salmon & Vegetables

I love this meal - mainly as it makes me feel sooooo virtuous!  It is incredibly quick and easy to put together, but is full of nothing but goodness! (Works perfectly for lunch)

It is also easy to modify according to your tastes, e.g. swap Walnuts, Almonds, Pumpkin seeds etc. for the Sunflower Seeds; swap fresh Salmon for canned; use dried Parsley instead of fresh Coriander.


From the cupboard: Can of Salmon; Sunflower seeds (or any nut of your choice, e.g. chopped walnuts, or chopped almonds)

From the fridge: Broccoli cut into small pieces; Coriander, Red capsicum; 1 Lemo


- Cook Broccoli by adding a small amount of water to the pan, putting on the lid and cooking for 3 - 5 minutes

- Add salmon and warm through

- Add chopped capsicum and take the pan off the stove so the capsicum remains crunchy, or warm through

- Take the pan off the stove and add chopped Coriander, and handful of Sunflower seeds, then squeeze over lemon to taste

Modifications: If you don’t like Coriander, Dill is a good substitute. If you don’t have fresh herbs available dried Parsely or Thyme would also be good for adding flavour.  If you don’t like canned Salmon, poach a piece of Salmon prior to cooking the Broccoli, then remove from the pan and set aside, then cut into small pieces or flake over the Broccoli.
