Ingredients
  

Sauce

  • ½ cup cilantro leaves and stems, chopped
  • 1 stalk green onions chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • ½ clove garlic
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice (this is typically juice from 1/4 of a lime)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

Salmon

  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika (optional- you can use smoked paprika instead)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 ounces salmon filet

Broccoli

  • 1 head broccoli cut into large florets.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450
  • Make the sauce. Combine cilantro, chives, garlic, lime juice, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (Alternatively, you can add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse, which is what I personally prefer to do)
  • Combine the cumin, paprika, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper
  • Spray a foil-lined sheet with cooking spray. Place broccoli florets onto sheet, coat with cooking spray, and season with salt and pepper. (This will roast for a total of 20 minutes)
  • While the broccoli roasts, place the Salmon in a foil-lined shallow baking dish. Drizzle the salmon with the spiced oil mixture.
  • After the broccoli has roasted 5 minutes, toss the broccoli and place back into oven.
  • Place the salmon in the oven until just cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.
