Unpopular opinion, vegetables are extremely versatile and fun to eat! This crispy recipe features broccoli and salmon skin crisps and it's unbelievably delicious and addicting, so stick around for all the details on this recipe!


There's something magical when you combine broccoli and cheese, I never forget that Desperate Housewives episode where a nanny offers brussels sprouts with cheese to the twins and they finally accept that veggie love!

From the protein of the salmon skin to the fiber and micro nutrients from the broccoli! It's a very satisfying recipe to prepare that will just make you want to make a bigger batch. Let's also don't forget about the cheese, another great source of protein and healthy fats it you choose pastured raised cheese.



What's in these Crispy Salmon Skin Broccoli?

As I mentioned earlier, I used crispy salmon skin that I got from Good Fish! These are literally crispy salmon skins, source from sustainably caught sockeye salmon. They are low carb and each bag has 10 grams of protein.


The seasonings included in this recipe are real salt, black pepper, garlic powder and dried parsley. That really brings up the taste from the broccoli, that combined with the cheese and the salmon skin is just WONDERFUL.


Veggies are actually very fun to prepare! As a nutritionist I know that healthy eating should be sustainable and convenient without sacrificing any taste. This recipe is a great and encouraging recipe to try veggies in different ways, not only plain old and boring green salads!

The jalapeño sauce in this recipe really gives them a nice kick of flavor, not too spicy but enough to enjoy the taste of them, I actually used this one from Siete Foods! A staple in my fridge an life but you are free to use the one of your preference.


And for spices, adding real salt, pepper and garlic really amps up any taste and aroma to the recipes; a must and another sneaky way to get some micronutrients such as minerals from the sea salt or real salt.


And the egg whites here are also important, they serve as glue to the crispy salmon skin, and for extra crispiness too!
