It doesn't get any easier than a sheet pan dinner! This makes a perfect weeknight dinner because it's quick and easy but best of all there is only one dish to wash! I especially love a sheet pan dinner with salmon because it cooks up so quickly.
This sheet pan dinner would also make a great addition to your Sunday meal prep. Since it only uses one pan it will free up space in the oven for your other meal prep favs. Can we also take a minute to recognize the dill/garlic/salmon combo. It really is a match made in heaven.
You'll see in the recipe below that I suggest finishing off this recipe under the broiler for a couple minutes. It's totally optional but I personally love the crispiness it gives the salmon and veggies. Especially broccoli, if your broccoli isn't just slightly burnt then you're doing it wrong. Trust me it's extra tasty that way. One more note on the broiler, if I'm making fish on it's own I will often cook in entirely under the broiler and it comes out great every time! A slight crisp on the top with flaky goodness underneath. If you'd be interested in a tutorial on that cooking method just leave a comment below and I'd be happy to put one together!
300 grams Salmon (wild caught)
2 cups sweet potatoes, cut in 1/4" cubes
3 cups broccoli, chopped
4 tbsp avocado oil (or your favourite cooking oil)
1.2 tsp dried garlic
2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Spread sweet potatoes evenly on a large baking sheet and brush with 1 tbsp oil and 1/2 tsp of sea salt
- Bake for 10 minutes
- Remove from oven and move sweet potatoes to one side of the sheet pan. Spread broccoli on the pan and brush with 2 tbsp of oil and 1/2 tsp of sea salt
- Bake for another 10 minutes
- Remove from oven and make space in the middle of the pan for salmon. Place salmon on the sheet pan, (skin side down if the skin is still attached).
- Brush salmon is 1 tbsp of oil and top with garlic, dill and remaining sea salt
- Bake for 10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through
- Optional but highly recommended: turn the oven to broil and move the pan to the top rack. Broil until the salmon is golden brown on top. About 2 - 5 minutes depending on your oven. Keep a close eye!
- Remove from oven and enjoy :)
