Roasted Salmon with Spicy Cauliflower

The cauliflower in this dish gets loads of flavor from garlic, anchovies, and red-pepper flakes -- and the richness of the salmon offsets those spices.

    The salmon and cauliflower pair great together! Per the reviews, I added the garlic to the cauliflower when I put the salmon in the pan. I will definitely make this again. I didn't have anchovy paste. It still came out great, but next time I will try it with the anchovy paste.

    Read a few of the reviews and decided to not add the garlic to the paste (may burn in oven). I roasted the cauliflower for 15 minute then when I added the salmon, I made a garlic & oo paste (garlic from recipe & ~1tb oo) and drizzled it over the roasted cauliflower. I then continued the recipe from there.

    Delicious. But did anyone else have trouble with the garlic burning? Next time I will roast the cauliflower for 15 minutes with just a little water and salt. Then add the rest ... oil, anchovies, red pepper and garlic... and finish off with the salmon that way. P.S. Don't be afraid of the anchovies. There will be no fishy taste at all; just adds a salty element. You can use the anchovy paste in a tube from the supermarket shelf (where the tomato , sundried tomato and garlic pastes are).

    I love this recipe. It was SO easy. I thin the best flavor was in the cauliflower. I will definitely make this again, doubling the amount of cauliflower I cook. I found I didn't need to make the sauce into a paste, though I tried, and it still tasted wonderful. The left over salmon made a great cream cheese spread.

    I like your "Contributors' Comments" section. It was because of the comments that I tried this recipe. Excellent, easy and fast to prepare.

    The BEST cauliflower I have ever had! I was hoping my husband didn't like it so I could have his also! Didn't use the anchovies and not quite as much oil as called for. Very easy and flavorful.

    This jazzed up cauliflower is also delicious pureed with just a touch of skimmed milk. Serve under the salmon. I puree cauliflower quite often. It makes a great low carb substitute for mashed potatoes.
