I realized recently that I’ve done this dish so many times on this blog, but have never posted the recipe, so here it is. This is probably one of the quickest and easiest meals out there – and it’s healthy and delicious too! The fish is done until it has just turned opaque and the broccoli is still crunchy – so if you prefer things to be more well done, increase the cooking time for a minute or two.

Serves 2


Crispy Skin Salmon Broccoli Peas | Thermomix2 x 200g salmon fillets

Salt and pepper, to season

3 cups broccoli florets

1 cup frozen peas, rinsed under warm water

Olive oil, for pan-frying

Extra virgin olive oil, to garnish

2 lemon wedges, to serve


1. Cut a piece of wax or baking paper to cover the Varoma tray, scrunch it up and then flatten onto the Varoma tray

2. Season the fish with salt and pepper and then put the salmon skin side up on the Varoma tray and pull up the sides of the wax paper to catch any juices when cooking

3. Put 500g of water into the Thermomix bowl, close the lid and assemble the Varoma on top

4. Steam for 12 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

5. Check the fish and steam for another 1 to 2 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish

6. Carefully remove the Varoma tray

7. Spread the broccoli and peas across the bottom of the Varoma bowl, reassemble and steam the vegetables for 3 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

8. Heat olive oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat and carefully put the fish skin side down into the pan – watch for the spattering oil

9. Fry until the skin is brown and crispy

10. Serve with vegetables and a lemon wedge and drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil
