Prepare Mash:

Place potato and cauliflower into a pot and cover with water. Cover, and once boiling, cook for 8-10 minutes or until the potato and cauliflower are tender. Drain and return to the pot. Add butter, season with salt and pepper and mash.

Press mustard side of each salmon fillet into the pecan mixture to coat. Place crusted salmon on baking tray. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 8 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

Cook Greens:

Add green beans and broccolini to the pot of boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes, until bright green. Drain and season with salt and pepper.
