4 wild salmon fillets NOTE - replace with Portobello Mushroom for Vegan option
4 cubes of butter, ghee or vegan spread for the salmon and 2 tbsp for the green beans and asparagus

Preheat the oven to 200C. Transfer the salmon fillets to a parchment paper lined baking tray. Top each fillet with a cube of butter, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 20 mins.
Add the cauliflower florets to a pan of boiling water and boil on a medium heat for 12 mins. Once cooked transfer florets to a blender. Add cream cheese, garlic and salt to taste. Blend until smooth.
For the green beans and asparagus, melt 1 tbsp of butter in two separate pans on a medium heat.
