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!
One Pan Japanese-Inspired Salmon
- 2 salmon fillets
- 1 bunch broccolini
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp coconut oil (or spray)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/4 cup tamari sauce
- 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp honey (optional)
- Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C if fan-forced)
- 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.
- Meanwhile, make the marinade by combining all marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisking until combined.
- Remove semi-cooked sweet potato from oven and add broccolini to tray. Spray broccolini with coconut oil and another sprinkle of rock salt.
- 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.
- Remove cooked salmon, broccolini and sweet potato from oven. Serve with brown rice, if desired.
