This recipe is actually more of a template for a scrummy and speedy weeknight meal. Of course, I happen to think this flavour combination works really well: it’s earthy yet vibrant, hearty yet light. However, it’s not the particular combination that matters quite as much as having an easy way to create a weeknight meal quickly, without feeling monotonous and still capturing that feeling of a meal being special. Just because time is precious (especially in the working week), dinner shouldn’t have to be a one-pot-meal, stir fry, or pasta (all of which have a huge part to play in our routine). I think the combination of a vegetable purée for richness and moisture, a light vegetable element for crunch and acidity, and a quickly cooked piece of protein gives a balanced, healthy, and quick yet complex weeknight meal. So, this recipe is for quickly seared salmon with celeriac purée and soy sauce edamame, sweet corn, and tenderstem broccoli.
