A healthy recipe that your family and brain will love!


Chef MDP’s Tip: Place any left over broccoli purée into a clean ice cube tray, freeze for later use! And always make sure to get skin on salmon as the skin has the highest concentration of omega-3 fats on the fish!




  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190c)
  2. In a blender or food processor, add and pulse the dill, turmeric, pumpkin seeds, oil, capers, Dijon, salt and pepper, to taste, until a paste forms.
  3. Using a spoon top each salmon fillet with an even amount the blended mixture.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is toasted and the salmon is cooked to medium and flakes easily.
