Foodie Friday: One Pan Dinner!

Welcome to the weekend! Was anyone else's week crazy busy? One pan dinners get me through! They are so quick, easy & nutritious!

This week I made a feast of salmon, sweet potato, asparagus, onion & garlic, but what is great about these dinners is almost everything is interchangeable! Use chicken or steak if that's what you prefer! If you are vegetarian, add more veggies...broccolini, carrot, parsnips...get creative! The recipe below serves 2-3 people. If you are cooking for yourself, take left overs as your lunch the following day. If you are cooking for more, double the recipe!

Let's get cooking!

Ingredients: (Serves 2-3)

1 pound of wild salmon (You can substitute with chicken, beef, or more veggies!)

About 2 cups asparagus, cut in half

1 large sweet potato, diced

1/2-1 onion (your preference as to how much you would like in the dish....I love onion, so I used an entire onion), chopped

4 large garlic cloves, minced

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Optional: Flavor God Lemon & Garlic Seasoning

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 375 °F.

Step 2:

Chop vegetables as instructed.

Step 3:

Mix vegetables (sweet potato, asparagus, , garlic & onion) with 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large bowl with salt and pepper.

Step 4:

Brush remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil on the fish and flavor with Flavor God Lemon & Garlic seasoning. If you don't have this seasoning on hand...lemon pepper is great! Otherwise, just season with salt & pepper.

Step 5:

Place vegetables and salmon on baking sheet. (Tip: Use foil for even less clean up!)

Step 6:

Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Take out salmon and place on plate, cover. Usually vegetables need about 15 more minutes to cook through.

(If replaced salmon with chicken or beef, you will need to cook the meat longer).

Step 7

Serve salmon on top of veggies & enjoy!

Be well,
