Gluten Free Breaded Salmon with Spicy Chips and Broccoli

As I’m sure you are aware my son Ted and I are huge fans of fish and salmon is one of our favourites. I always try to include different meals in our menu each week but fish is one food group I always find difficult to invent meals. So when an idea hits me I have to go with it when it comes to fish dishes.

In the past I have made gluten free fish fingers but I have never just made a crusty topping for a piece of fish. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how my son would react to this meal. He can be a really fussy eater even when it comes to fish. However he loved it. ‘It’s fish’, he declared to me, ‘of course I like it.’

Fussy eater or not, fish is always a winner with Ted and I’m sure it will be a meal that’s greatly received by your families too. It’s a healthy meal that’s packed full of goodness. We really enjoyed it and we are sure you will too.

Gluten Free Breaded Salmon with Spicy Chips and Broccoli

Gluten Free Breaded Salmon and Spicy Chips was a simple and easy dish. It took a short amount of time to prepare and cook this dinner. So I think it would make a great mid week meal. To make this even quicker you could prepare the spices and the ground flax seed and herb crumb. Then all you have to do is mix the olive oil into the ground flax seed and spread it across the salmon. However you decide to eat this yummy fish dish, as always, please enjoy.
