I have created this recipe many years ago when my daughters were toddlers so that they would eat salmon and broccoli without any revolt! To date, this dish is still at the top of their weekly menu list. We serve it with wholewheat spelt penne pasta and top it with parmesan, lemon juice and scallions for a little bit of zest. —Saboush Cooks
