One-Pan Oven Roasted Salmon and Broccolini

AvatarPosted by

This Oven Roasted Salmon and Broccolini recipe is for everyone out there who says that they don’t have time to cook. This one-pan dinner takes very little time to prep and no time at all to clean up after — all you have to do is peel the aluminum foil from the pan and you’re done!

Beyond the perks of this being such a quick and easy meal, it’s healthy, too: salmon is filled with Omega-3 fatty acids, and broccolini is rich in potassium, calcium and antioxidants. It’s also an incredibly delicious meal — it’ll have anyone within sniffing distance floating toward your kitchen cartoon-style, ready to divulge of the amazing flavors created by the combination of lemon, garlic and dill. Drooling yet?

About Broccolini

As you probably already know, Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thinner stalks. However, here’s an interesting fact you might not know –  Broccolini is actually a natural hybrid of Broccoli and Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli/Chinese Kale)!

This is super interesting to me because I grew up with both Broccoli and Gai Lan (aka Chinese Broccoli/Chinese Kale) as common household dishes my mom made. So it is apparently no surprise I like Broccolini!  Apparently, it’s their secret (or not so secret) love child!

Oven Roasted Salmon and Broccolini

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • Three 6 oz. filets of salmon
  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • cooking oil/fat of choice

Directions

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and preheat oven to 450°F. Technically you don’t need the aluminum foil, but I just personally find it a lot easier to deal with the clean up when you use aluminum foil.

Pat salmon dry. Rub with oil and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and dill.

Add broccolini to pan. Mince garlic and sprinkle over both salmon and broccolini. Drizzle oil over broccolini, just enough to lightly coat. Thinly slice lemon and place atop the salmon.

Bake in oven for about 10 minutes, or until fish easily flakes with a fork.

  1. Lemon, salmon and broccolini, just a few of my favorites foods together! It’s a perfect meal in my opinion!

  2. I’ve never tried roasting broccolini. This is such a good excuse to try it, especially since this takes like 15 minutes total.
