Cajun and garlic Salmon with Cayenne sweet potatoes, beetroot and Tenderstem broccoli



Cajun is one of my favourite spices and it goes so well with chicken and fish in particular. In addition, this particular spice is very versatile. It is very popular in South America and provide a great kick.

One great hack that I have been using is wrapping the fish in aluminium foil like a parcel to seal all of the flavours and seasoning. In addition it makes the fish tender and not dry out.

Then you have the deep, purple, honey roasted beetroot along the bright Orange sweet potato mash. Also you have the deep green Tenderstem broccoli. All of these elements provide different colours and different flavours.

Also this meal is quick and the majority of it goes in the oven, which saves time.
