Sheet Pan Garlic and Butter Baked Salmon with Vegetables

Wow, that was quite a hiatus. I didn't intend to take a summer blogging vacation, but alas, I did. However, no fear, I have plenty of recipes to share as I have continued to cook this summer! 

You know I am a fan of the dinner trifecta: easy, fast, delicious. This fits that bill perfectly, and bonus: only one pan! Have you gotten on the sheet pan dinner bandwagon? I've made a few but I was especially interested to try this one since it also involved a new way to cook salmon.

This couldn't be simpler; just fill up that sheet pan with cut up veggies,

 let them roast a bit, then add the salmon and the delicious garlic butter sauce, and roast some more. 

In the summer, especially, I love having "extra" roasted vegetables - they make a great mix in for scrambled eggs the next morning!

Go easy on yourself this summer and make this fantastic dinner. (Note: the original recipe called only for potatoes and asparagus. I used a mix of green vegetables and mushrooms. If you want to include potatoes - which would be delicious! - see the link to the original recipe below.)

Sheet Pan Garlic and Butter Baked Salmon with Vegetables

16 oz. fresh salmon (either leave as one piece or cut into 4)
1 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp. parsley
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup melted butter
4 -6 cups chopped assorted vegetables (zucchini, onion, broccoli, summer squash, asparagus, mushrooms, etc)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper

Toss vegetables with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.  Spread out on a large sheet pan and roast at 400 for 10 minutes.

In a small measuring cup, combine the butter, garlic, parsley and lemon juice. Stir well. 

Remove pan from oven and move the vegetables around to make room for the salmon on the pan. Place the salmon amongst the vegetables then cover the salmon liberally with the butter garlic sauce. Dribble any remaining sauce over the vegetables.

Return to the oven and roast for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon. If you like, you can broil the salmon for a minute or two to help crisp up the top. 

Serves 4.
