This exceptionally easy mid week meal can be whipped up in less than 25 minutes and with the double dose of Omega 3's from the walnuts and the salmon it's powerful food for the brain, the joints and the heart.

2 fillets salmon
2 cups broccoli, cut into small florets
1½ tbsp salted capers, well rinsed and drained
1 cup basil, shredded
1 tbsp lemon zest
½ cup walnuts, dry roasted
½ lemon juiced

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Brush the salmon with a little oil and sear each side in a grill pan. Transfer to a baking sheet to cook for a further 10 minutes.

While the salmon is cooking steam the broccoli for 3 - 4 minutes and set aside.
Heat the tea oil in a pan until it's very hot (but not smoking). Add the capers and basil and fry them until dark and crispy. Toss through the broccoli, lemon zest, walnuts and lemon juice and serve over the fish.
Season with cracked pepper and serve.

Note: Walnuts contain the highest source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids than any other plant food and are referred to as " the seatbelt for the heart".
Buy walnuts that feel heavy for their size.
