Roast Broccoli and Salmon Recipe

Makes 4 servings

2 pounds broccoli
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper (to taste)
4-4 ounce fillets of salmon
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 500F. Cover the bottom of a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place sheet in oven while oven heats up.

Cut crowns into 4 wedges. Place broccoli in large bowl and add olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to combine. When oven is heated, place broccoli on baking sheet and roast for 8 minutes.

While broccoli is roasting, prepare salmon fillets by drying them and sprinkling on some salt and pepper.

Add the salmon on top of the broccoli after the initial 8 minutes of cooking, and roast for an additional 8 minutes until salmon is cooked through.

Remove from oven and squeeze a few lemon slices over the top. Serve immediately.
