Ingredients

Steps

01.

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring, for 5 mins or until softened.

02.

Add rice to pan; cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until grains appear transparent. Stir in stock; bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, for 10 mins.

03.

Meanwhile, combine spices in a medium bowl, season; add salmon, toss to coat in spice mixture.

04.

Place salmon and broccoli on rice; cook, covered, for a further 3 mins. Remove pan from heat; stand for 5 mins or until broccoli and rice are tender and stock is absorbed. Season to taste.

05.

Remove salmon; flake into pieces. Use a fork to separate the rice grains. Top the pilaf with the flaked salmon, nuts and coriander. Serve with lemon cheeks.

TIP Instead of broccoli, you can use a green vegetable of your choice, such as asparagus, spinach, peas, green beans or snow peas. Recipe is not suitable to freeze.
