Ingredients
  • 1 ½ pounds salmon, room temperature thawed if frozen
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a 9 by 13 baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Pat salmon dry with paper towels.

  3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil on both sides of salmon.

  4. Sprinkle just under ½ a teaspoon of salt on both sides of the salmon. Reserve the remaining salt for the broccoli.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Serve the Salmon and Broccoli Sheet Pan Dinner warm.

Recipe Notes

1. Lining the baking sheet with parchment paper makes for easy cleanup and prevents the fish from sticking to the pan.

2. Variations

  • Use another vegetable. Try using other vegetables like zucchini, brussel sprouts, or bell peppers in this recipe.
  • Use a different fish. Instead of salmon, you could use different kinds of fish like trout, whiting fish, snapper, tilapia, and so on.
  • Use different seasoning. Try seasoning your fish with other kinds of seasoning like cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, or any seasoning you like.
  • Steam the broccoli instead. This is for those who don't like roasted broccoli. Only one of my girls enjoys roasted broccoli. So you could cook the salmon in the oven then steam or saute the vegetable instead.
