Salmon with Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

The ideas for this came from the It Starts with Food Book, as for me, it is day 3 of the Whole 30. As usual, I didn't quite stick to the recipe, but I think I stuck to the rules.


Salmon with roasted cauliflower and green beans on a plate


The first thing to do is the Cauliflower


Break it into florets and put into a bowl contain about 3tbsp melted ghee, 2 cloves crushed galric and salt and pepper and make sure it is coated. Place on a baking tray and cook at about 210ยบรง for half an hour.

As you can see, I had a little help with this.


Then the beans


Top and tail and coat in a mixture of ghee, salt and pepper and dried mint. Add to the cauliflower tray when the cauliflower has had 15 mins (the beans take about 15 mins).



And finally the salmon



Start cooking once the beans go in the oven. Put a generous amount of ghee into the frying pan and prinkle some salt and pepper on top if the fish. Once the ghee has melted, add the salmon and cook for 3 mins on a medium heat, then turn over and cook for another 3 mins on the other side. Whilst this is happening get the zest from one lemon and the juice from one lemon and one lime and a teaspoon of dried parsley and mix together. When the salmon has had 3 mins on each side pour this mixture over the top of the fillets (if the skin is still on, be sure to pure the mixture on the no skin side)  and leave to cook in this juice for a further 3 mins.

Hopefully everything should be finished at once.

Enjoy.
