Sheet Pan Honey Mustard Salmon & Veggies

mains recipes Aug 23, 2021

I’m back with another easy peasy sheet pan meal, who’s excited?! And for those who might be intimidated by cooking salmon at home, this one’s for you.

I’ve found myself whipping up this quick dinner when I’m looking to keep things simple without sacrificing taste or nutrition. And feel free to mix up your veggies here for whatever you love best and have on hand!

Personally, I like to have a mix of flavors, colors and textures, and the combination of broccoli, red onion and sweet potatoes provide just that. Plus, these veggies bring their own unique health benefits to the table that would make anyone feel good about adding this into their weekly rotation.

Broccoli is full fiber as well as powerful antioxidants seen to promote brain health and protect against cancer. Likewise, red onions are incredibly nutrient-dense and can help control blood sugar while sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin C and help improve digestive health. What more could you want?

And if this wasn’t enough, the salmon really brings an additional punch of health to this recipe as well. Actually, salmon is one of the most nutritious foods we can eat, period. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are shown to decrease inflammation, reduce cancer risk and lower blood pressure. Plus it provides protein and B-vitamins that are essential to brain and nervous system function.

You can check out a variety of other delicious salmon recipes here and read up in this blog post as to why it’s one of my 12 Beauty Foods for Skin & Hair Health.

But health benefits aside, this recipe is likewise a winner thanks to the flavor that honey mustard provides! This is one of my personal favorite sauces/condiments as it has the perfect balance of tanginess and sweetness that legitimately makes everything better.

All you need to do it whisk together whole grain mustard, olive oil, honey, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. And that’s it!

I recommend letting your veggies roast a bit on their own before adding the salmon and honey mustard just to make sure they’re completely cooked through and crispy (the only way to do it, right?).

And the beauty of a sheet pan meal is that you’ll only have one pan to clean up and dinner ready in minutes for the whole family.

Hope y’all enjoy this easy, healthy weeknight meal as much as I did  .
