- 2 (8-ounce) salmon filets
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1/2 pound of green beans (trimmed)
- 1 red bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 orange bell pepper(sliced)
- 2 large carrots (sliced)
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- garnish: 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
Gather your ingredients.
Lay the vegetables and fish on your greased sheet pan. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Whisk together all of the other ingredients in a small bowl.
Drizzle half of the sauce over the top of the salmon and veggies. Use a brush to brush the sauce over the salmon too.
Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. While it is baking add the rest of the sauce to a saucepan and cook it on medium heat, whisk frequently until it has thickened, about 3 minutes.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven and pour the remainder of the sauce over the top of the salmon and veggies.
Garnish with the sesame seeds and dig in!
- Make sure to grease the sheet pan with a little non-stick spray.
- Leave the skin on the salmon. This will also prevent the flesh from sticking to the pan.
- You can marinade the salmon in some of the sauce for up to 12 hours before cooking. This will intensify the flavor. But if you are looking for a quick dinner it is totally not necessary.
- You can totally do this recipe with chicken or shrimp. Shrimp will take a little less time to cook. Chicken will usually take a little longer.
- You can substitute honey for the brown sugar and rice vinegar is a great substitute for the white vinegar.
- You can use pre-made marinades if you want to make this super easy. The possibilities are endless!
