Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner is the best. Not only that you can mix and match vegetables, but it is all year round kind of meal. Don’t you agree?

One of our favorite fish is salmon. We just love salmon made any way possible; smoked, grilled, poached, baked. It is amazing in baked dishes or sandwiches.

What is your favorite fish?

On the other hand, sheet pan dinner is just phenomenal. You can add chicken, sausage, beef, pork or any other fish. Also, it is fantastic to clean your fridge day when you do not have so much food, but it has to be used.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

I have made this dish many times and the best way to not overcook fish was to actually wrap it in foil. If you hate relationship with Alum foil then just use parchment paper.

I cooked it at the same temperature and pulled salmon 10 minutes earlier so it ended up cooking in the foil before serving. It was absolutely divine!

Yes, you can absolutely bake fish on top of your veggies but I found this way tastier.

The whole point of my blog is to inspire you to get back to cooking your own meals, so you can use whatever protein or vegetables you wish to use or whatever is in season.

However, ever since Sitka Salmon Shares announced on their website that we are going to have Salmon in the next shipment I could not wait. I love all their fish.

If you ever tasted then you must agree with me, but since salmon is family favorite we were eagerly anticipating our subscription box to come.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Yield: 4 Servings

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Easy, Delicious and a perfect family dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1- 1 1/2 pound Salmon Fillet, defrosted (Wild Alaskan)
  • Kosher Salt a good pinch or two, rub on the salmon
  • 1-2 teaspoon ground black Pepper
  • Lemon slices from 1 lemon
  • 1 teasoon dried Oregano
  • 5 tablespooms of Garlic-Herb Butter (if available)

Vegetables

  • 1 pound New Potatoes, I used red
  • 1/2 pound Green Beans
  • 1/2 pound Baby Carrots
  • 1 pound Broccoli, I used frozen florets 
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
  • 4-5 Garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried Oregano

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 375F

SALMON:

  1. Defrost salmon, and take it out of the pack. Take a large heavy-duty aluminum foil or parchment paper and then, season salmon with salt, pepper, herbs. Rub on both sides well, then place the sliced lemon on each slice of salmon and a tablespoon of butter. Wrap nicely and prep vegetables.
  2. Place Salmon to bake at the same time you will bake vegetables.
  3. Make sure to take it out after 25 minutes. That way salmon will not overcook. It will continue cooking in the foil until it is ready to be served. So do not open it until you are ready to eat or until vegetables are ready.

SHEET PAN VEGETABLES:

  1. Wash Potatoes and either cut them in half or the quarters.
  2. Season each vegetable with salt, pepper, and herbs, then place each vegetable next to each other but do not overcrowd the sheet pan. Make sure it is somewhat in one layer.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 40 minutes in 375F preheated oven.
  4. If the potatoes need a bit more time to cook, then remove all the other vegetables and allow potatoes to cook additional 2-3 minutes under the broiler (medium temp).

Notes

You may use any vegetables that you have or are in season; Cauliflower, asparagus, peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc. Possibilities are endless

You may cook vegetables in the air fryer, but potatoes might take a bit more time to crisp up.

If you do not have garlic and herbs butter available, then just add a pinch more salt, add more dried parsley and a teaspoon or two of garlic powder, that's it!

Bacon and Kale Soup

Bacon and Kale Soup

Who does not like an easy, flavorful and comforting meal, especially something like this Bacon and Kale Soup?

I make this bacon and kale soup pretty often. Sometimes I add bacon and sausage, and sometimes just sausage.

However, this soup is really amazing even when you make it vegetarian just by omitting meat, of course, and adding vegetable stock.

My family loves it at least a couple of times a month and it is enjoyed all year round.

Bacon and Kale Soup

Bacon goes so well with kale. I love adding it to my cabbage soup as well as green bean stew.

Well, you guys must know that I just love bacon any way you serve it, but it gives an extra flavor to soup like this one with rather tasteless kale.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

You cannot get a meal more simple than these Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats. Yes, it does take some time until the squash is cooked but that is pretty much it.

My husband and I devoured this one. Even though I did not use the largest spaghetti squash, we could not finish it so I say one of these serves four people. Especially if you serve it with salad or some type of bread.

We do not consume bread as before and still, this was a pretty satisfying lunch or dinner.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats

Now, there are a couple of things that you can add like sauteed peppers, celery or addition or onion.

You can chop everything and just sautee before adding meat to the pan. Also, you may like your own tomato or Italian sauce. It is totally versatile and you can use whatever you wish to add.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Yield: Serves 4

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Spaghetti Squash 2 to 3 pounds
  • 1 generous Pinch Salt and Black Ground Pepper
  • 1 drizzle Olive Oil

STUFFING

  • 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 pound Ground Beef 80/20 or whatever you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder you can saute 1/4 of medium chopped onion instead.
  • 1 pinch Salt and ground black pepper each or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herbs, Blend
  • 1 1/2 cup Pasta Sauce any sauce that you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley for garnish
  • 1/4 pound Cheese, freshly sliced of shredded mozzarella, provolone, or mild cheddar cheese works

Instructions

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop the seeds out using a spoon. Place squash, cut side down, in a baking dish. Fill pan with hot water to a depth of 1/2 in. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes or until tender. I use a knife or a fork to punch through on the side of the bowl. If tender the squash is done. Remove all the water out of not evaporated, then turn the squash halves on the other side.Add a pinch of Salt and pepper in each just to season it, drizzle with a drizzle of olive oil and allow it to roast for an additional 10-15 minutes at 375F.
  2. Meanwhile, make a beef sauce by sauteeing ground beef. Remove excess grease if you wish before adding spices and seasoning. To the ground beef add onion powder, Italian herb blend, salt, and pepper to taste. When the meat is cooked and not bloody add about 1 1/2 cup Sauce. I used Beef flavored sauce.
  3. When the squash is cooked and cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the squash making squash spaghetti stand.
  4. On the top of spaghetti squash add an equal amount of beef sauce on top, using fork mix it a bit coating spaghetti squash with the sauce, then add cheese. You can also take the spaghetti squash out completely and layer it like lasagna (sauce, squash, cheese, etc.) using skin as a bowl, but I prefer it this way.
  5. Place it back in the oven and bake uncovered, at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.Enjoy!

Notes

You may use ground, minced or diced chicken bites for this recipe.
