Salmon and Broccoli Risotto

Salmon and Broccoli Risotto

This is such an easy, tasty meal to throw together in about half an hour on a school night. It’s also really good for you and an easy way to get some well needed nutrients on board.

For the risotto base see my Basic Risotto recipe. The rest is pretty straight forward!

Salmon and Broccoli Risotto

Healthy high protein meal that's packed full of nutrients! I ate this as a child and was one of the first ways my mum got me into eating fish and veg!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 30 mins


  • Half a head of broccoli
  • 2 salmon fillets chopped into chunks
  • Salt pepper
  • Wedge of lemon
  • Chives to top


  • After you add the stock in the basic risotto recipe, start to blanch the broccoli for 3-5 minutes (depending on how crunchy you like it). Once the rice has more or less cooked through, drain the broccoli and add it, alongside the salmon, to the rice. Cook for a further five minutes, season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with parmesan, squeeze over lemon and then serve up and munch!

This was one of the first fish and veg recipes my mum made for me when I was little, and I’ve never looked back! It’s such a warming meal it doesn’t feel like it’s healthy… perfect for fooling little ones who won’t eat their greens!

Enjoy, Millie xx

    This looks awesome! Do I need to cook the salmon before adding it to the risotto?

      Hi Louisa! Sorry for taking so long to reply – I didn’t even realise comments were a thing on here anymore! You don’t need to cook the salmon beforehand, you can just pop it straight in. Hope you managed to give it a try. Millie xx
