Simple baked Norwegian Salmon served over broccoli-potato mash.
Trim the stems of the broccoli. Steam until tender, then mash.
Boil the potatoes until tender, then mash.
Combine the broccoli and potato mash, then stir in butter and milk or half & half. Season with salt and pepper, and keep warm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Melt butter and pour over the butterflied Norwegian Salmon. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake salmon for about 12 minutes, or to desired temperature.
Stuff a small amount of potato-broccoli puree into each piece and add a spoonful of salmon roe, if using, on top. Serve on top of remaining puree.
Finish with a drizzle of browned butter.
Garnish with steamed broccoli florets.
Make a Nordic "shepherd's pie" with the ingredients, adding a nice crunchy topping like crushed potato chips.
