Salmon with spicy rice and broccoli

The temperature is hot and you gained a few pounds from your holiday (like me and my wife did). Time to think of healthy recipes and light meals, that also have great flavors.

My wife loves fish and we do have a good fish market around the corner, so I had to think of something with fish. Salmon is a no brainer for me, you can wake me up at night for salmon fried on the skin. In this combination with spicy rice, broccoli, cashew, lemon juice and coriander all those fresh and spicy flavors just hit the spot.

Guess what, it was a big hit at home. I hope you guys like it!
