Baked Salmon over Buttered Rice with Roasted Brussels Sprouts drizzled with Sundried Tomato Cream

Salmon is such a great fish. I love seafood, but when it comes to eating fish filets, salmon is hands down my favourite. I do enjoy other types, but I find they can be quite bland or dry if not prepared correctly. Salmon, however, is full of flavour and is completely versatile when using in your dishes.


My husband tends to roll his eyes when I say there will be fish for dinner, but not with this salmon. Especially with the way its made. I am not a fan of frying my salmon in a pan. There is no need to fry, my opinion with salmon filets is slow and steady leads the race. Put it in the oven and let it do its thing.


I have been on a vegan journey for about the past 3 months, but I have to say I am starting to get weak. The reason I had decided to go vegan was to be healthier and eat clean, however I felt that at times I was missing the “fullness” when eating whole meals. This dish is very healthy and is definitely clean eating. I felt full and loved every bite. Like I said before, I am a sauce girl. I always need a dip, and this sundried tomato cream had a tanginess that complimented the brussels sprouts and salmon perfectly.
