We just got back from an amazing vacation-ish trip to Nashville. Do you know what they say about moms needing a vacation after a vacation? It’s true!

You know I had to get it! Plus I had some broccoli that had been sitting in the fridge since we left home. Voila, a recipe was born! And most importantly, my family had a tasty wholesome meal to enjoy!

How To Tell Salmon Is Done

A simple way to tell if salmon is done is to flake the fish with a fork. If the fish flakes easily then it is done.

Also, you could use an instant-read digital thermometer to test the fish for doneness. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the fish. If it reads about 130 degrees Fahrenheit then the fish is done.

Variations

  • Use another vegetable: Try using other vegetables like zucchini, brussels sprouts, or bell peppers in this recipe.
  • Use a different fish: Instead of salmon, you could use different kinds of fish like trout, whiting fish, snapper, tilapia, and so on.
  • Use different seasonings: Try seasoning your fish with other kinds of seasoning like Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, or any seasoning you like.
  • Steam the broccoli instead: This is for those who don’t like roasted broccoli. Only one of my girls enjoys roasted broccoli. So you could cook the salmon in the oven and then steam or saute the vegetable instead.
