This Salmon and Broccoli Sheet Pan dinner is the easiest ever! The salmon is seasoned with an easy seasoning that takes the fish to the next level. The broccoli gets slightly crispy around the edges and takes on a bit of sweetness in the oven. Serve this Salmon and Broccoli as is for an easy dinner recipe or add some roasted potatoes if you like.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a 9 by 13 baking sheet with parchment paper.
Pat salmon dry with paper towels.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil on both sides of salmon.
Sprinkle just under ½ a teaspoon of salt on both sides of the salmon. Reserve the remaining salt for the broccoli.
Rub the garlic powder, paprika and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper all over the salmon. Place on a 9 by 13 inch baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the broccoli florets, remaining half tablespoon of olive oil, remaining salt and ⅛ teaspoon of black pepper. Toss well to combine then arrange the broccoli on the same sheet as the salmon.
Place the sheet in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes until salmon is fully cooked. It should be opaque around the edges and a digital thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the fish should read about 135°F.
Serve the Salmon and Broccoli Sheet Pan Dinner warm.
1. Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper makes for easy cleanup and prevents the fish from sticking to the pan.
