Today I have a quick recipe. When it comes to cooking it is not really my favorite activity. Unless I cook for myself. Then I am a bit more enthusiastic because I can try new things. I am not a picky eater and if my creation may not taste that great I will still eat it. I can only remember one time when I actually had to trash a dish because it was uneatable. My body had reactions. The roasted brussel sprouts with salmon is one dish I like to do for myself. It is quick, easy and healthy. Now I am just hoping Brussel sprouts don’t trigger strong body reactions for you. I personally believe that Brussel sprouts should get a bit more credit.
Did you know that they are actually called Brussel sprouts because it was first cultivated in the region that is now Belgium? I personally didn’t know that. Probably because in German I never heard the term “Brüssler Kohl” that is apparently used in some area. For me it will always be “Rosenkohl” and roughly translated as rose cabbage. I am stalling. Let’s get cooking.
Here is what you need
- 250 g fresh Brussel sprouts
- 150g salmon – I used one with skin
- 250 ml organic creamy oat cuisine – alternatively regular cream
- fresh lemon juice
- pumpkin seeds
As I mentioned earlier I am a fan of quick and easy cooking. So the instructions are somewhat ridiculous to write down but here they are:
- Wash and clean Brussel sprouts
- Cut in half and put into casserole dish
- Place salmon on top
- Add salt and pepper to salmon.
- In a bowl mix oat cream with plenty of salt and pepper. I used lemon salt for the extra kick.
- Spread over vegetables and salmon.
- Sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top.
- Bake at 180°C/ 360°F for about 20-30 minutes.
- Sprinkle lemon juice before serving.
Now let me know if you like Brussel Sprouts and how you usually eat them. If you don’t like them tell me what your favorite vegetable is.
Have a great day
That looks absolutely delicious. I love Brussels Sprouts (I didn’t know where the name came from, but it makes sense).
We usually roast Brussels Sprouts as a side dish. Tonight, coincidentally, I’ll for the first time try them in soup. I’ll report back.
Oh yes soup. I think there is even recipe here in the blog. I like hire a name in a different language actually helps you understand the story behind
I love brussels sprouts!!! I usually just roast them with olive oil and salt. I feel like they’re a very fall-ish vegetable, and we usually have them with our Thanksgiving dinner.
High five for another Brussel sprouts lover. I also prefer the simple dishes – just salt and pepper so you can really enjoy the flavor. Sounds perfect with turkey
I LOVE Brussels Sprouts but, true to fashion, my kids do not. And my parents don’t like them, so I didn’t try them until I was a teenager.
Roasted and then tossed with some bacon and brown sugar – I could eat a huge bowl!
Also, salmon is just so delicious. Yum. Love everything about this dish! Looks like such a satisfying, cozy (and healthy) meal.

I can only a few. I need to add some bacon next time. Sounds great. And yeah I can also inhale a whole bowl and wonder why there isn’t more.
I love brussels sprouts! This looks so delicious!
Thank you. It really is yummy and so easy to make
