This might seem like such a basic weeknight meal, but sometimes simplicity is just what you need.
I'll be honest; this is a meal I often have throughout the week. It's pretty easy to make, requires one pan, and is ready in under 30 minutes. It's a classic gut-friendly recipe that will impress anyone you make it for.
You'll love that it's packed with rich buttery flavor from the salmon, a slight punch of heat from the crushed red peppers, and a slight citrus bite of the lime and olive oil tossed broccoli. Here I've paired it with a cup of Ginger Vinegar Sparkling water that has prebiotic properties which boost gut health and immunity. The naturally bitter and tartness is the perfect accompaniment to cut through the richness of the other elements in this recipe.

What You’ll Need To Know
Preheat oven to 400F. Coat the salmon lightly with olive oil and salt, and place it skin side down in a tray or cask iron skillet. Sprinkle red chili flakes, pink salt and pepper.
In a mixing bowl, add broccoli, olive oil, lime juice, and pink salt mixing it together to get a nice coat. Place broccoli around salmon and and bake for 12-15 minutes.
I like my salmon skin very crispy and ended up removing it and placing it back in the oven to cook up for 5 more minutes while I plated my dish.
