One Pan Mustard and Honey Crusted Salmon and Vegetables
- 1 ½ -2 pounds of salmon (4 slices- about 2 inches thick a piece)
- 1 head of broccoli chopped into florets
- 1 cup cremini mushrooms quartered
- ⅛ cup olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper sliced
Honey Dijon Sauce
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- ⅛ cup honey
- ⅓ cup whole grain mustard
- 1 tsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
- ½ of a lemon's juice
- ⅛ tsp sweet paprika
- ⅛ tsp kosher salt
- a large pinch of red pepper flakes
- Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
- In a medium bowl, mix together all of your ingredients for your sauce.
- Grab a small bowl and take 4 tbsp of your prepared sauce and add that to your bowl.
- Mix the olive oil into your small bowl until it is well blended.
- On a large roasting pan, add your prepped vegetables.
- Take the sauce from the small bowl with the olive oil and drizzle it over your vegetables and with your hands toss it all around until they are well coated. Once the vegetables are coated, push them to the sides of your pan to make room for the salmon.
- Now, place your salmon in the center of the pan. Salmon should be skin side down.
- Take the remaining marinade you made in the medium bowl and pour over top of the salmon making sure to coat all of it.
- Place salmon and vegetables in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the salmon is fully cooked through. It is fully cooked when it turns a lighter pink and starts to flake.
- Once the salmon is cooked through, turn on the broiler in your oven and broil the top of your salmon and vegetables until you start to see the marinade crust bubble, about 4 minutes
- Remove from oven and enjoy!
