My One Pan dinners are all about throwing a protein and a whole lot of veggies onto a baking dish and popping it into the oven. Quick, simple, done! I am on a mission to prove how easy and fast healthy cooking can be. This took me no time to prepare and tastes absolutely delicious.

You guys love this Japanese-inspired salmon recipe – one of my most popular recipes ever – so I just had to turn it into an easy one pan meal. Full of healthy fats, nutrients from the greens and low-GI sweet potato – it’s the most complete nutritional – and tasty meal – you’ll make all week!


Serves: 2

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (or spray)
  • 1 tsp sea salt

For the Marinade:

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup tamari sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C if fan-forced)
  2. Chop sweet potato into rounds (1-2cm in thickness). Arrange on a lined baking tray, leaving room for salmon and broccolini, and drizzle with coconut oil or spray. Sprinkle sesame seeds and sea salt. Add to oven for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the marinade by combining all marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisking until combined.
  4. Remove semi-cooked sweet potato from oven and add broccolini to tray. Spray broccolini with coconut oil and another sprinkle of rock salt.
  5. Place two salmon fillets in the middle of the baking tray, surrounded by broccolini and sweet potato, and drizzle over marinade. Add to oven for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Remove cooked salmon, broccolini and sweet potato from oven. Serve with brown rice, if desired.
