Salmon & Broccoli Breakfast

This is a great recipe for busy women who don’t have time to make an elaborate breakfast but want to avoid the high sugar content of most grab-and-go options. The method is simple: put coarsely chopped veggies and protein in one dish and bake while you get ready for your day. You can save time by chopping the vegetables and placing them in the baking dish the night before.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Equipment: 13×9 inch baking dish



2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus additional for greasing

1 small head cauliflower, stemmed and coarsely chopped

1 teaspoon sea salt, divided

2 salmon fillets (about 1 pound)

1 tablespoon ghee

1 teaspoon dried dill or 2 tablespoons fresh dill



  1. preheat the oven to 400F
  2. grease the baking pan with olive oil (or line with parchment paper). Place the vegetables in the pan.
  3. sprinkle the veggies with 1/2 teaspoon salt, drizzle with the olive oil, and toss until well combined.
  4. Place the salmon on top of the veggies. spoon the ghee over each fillet and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the dill.
  5. bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the fish easily flakes away when tested with a fork.
