Ingredients for roasted salmon with vegetables
The salmon, broccoli, and potatoes in this recipe are seasoned with a handful of simple ingredients like fresh herbs, lemon juice, and butter. No fancy equipment required! It’s all cooked together on one sheet pan. These are all the ingredients you need to make an easy salmon dinner:
- Salmon fillets
- Baby potatoes
- Red onion
How to make roasted salmon
Step 1: Roast the seasoned potatoes and red onion on a baking sheet for 10 minutes.
Step 2: While the potatoes are roasting, season the broccoli. Add it to the baking sheet with the potatoes to cook for a few minutes.
Step 3: Combine the breadcrumbs, melted butter, parsley together in a bowl to make the crust for the salmon.
Step 4: Make some room on the baking sheet for the salmon fillets. Lay each one on the sheet and squeeze lemon juice over top. Season the fillets with salt and pepper and finish by adding some of the crumb mixture on top.
Step 5: Bake everything one last time for about 15 minutes and serve.
How long to bake salmon?
The thicker your salmon fillets, the longer they need to bake. Salmon shouldn’t need more than 15 minutes in the oven at 425ºF but 8 to 10 minutes is usually the sweet spot (depending if you like it more rare or well done). An instant read thermometer should read 145ºF in the thickest part of the salmon when it’s done.
Another easy way to tell that the salmon is done baking is to look at the flakiness. Use a fork to scrape the fillet – does it flake easily? If yes, then it’s ready to come out of the oven!
Tips and variations
- You don’t have to make this recipe with potatoes or broccoli. Feel free to swap the veggies for anything you like, such as asparagus, sweet potatoes, broccolini, red potatoes, cauliflower, mushrooms, and more. Just adjust the baking time depending on what you use.
- If you don’t have salmon, make this recipe with skinless boneless chicken breasts instead. You can still add the breadcrumb crust on top as well!
- If you prefer a sweeter taste, replace the breadcrumb coating on the salmon with a honey glaze instead.
- To make this recipe gluten free, omit the breadcrumbs or replace them with gluten free breadcrumbs instead.
- Did you end up with leftovers? Cut up the salmon and layer it with the vegetables over a bed of couscous, quinoa, kale, or rice.
Storing leftover roasted salmon
Wrap any leftover salmon fillets tightly in foil and store them in an airtight container. It should last for up to 3 days in the fridge.
