Sheet Pan Salmon: Serves 4
● 3 tablespoons honey
● 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
● 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
● 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
● 1/4 teaspoon salt
● 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
● 1/2 cup nuts of your choice, coarsely chopped, (walnuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios, or a mixture)
● 1 pound salmon
● 4 cups broccoli florets
● 1 tablespoon olive oil
● Lemon wedges, optional
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a large sheet pan with foil. In a small bowl mix together honey, dijon mustard, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
2. Place salmon on the sheet pan and spoon the honey glaze evenly over the salmon until completely coated but not running off of the salmon. (You may end up with some extra glaze. You can save this for drizzling over the salmon at the end.) Press chopped nuts on top of the glazed salmon.
3. Toss broccoli with olive oil and place onto the same sheet pan.
4. Bake everything for 12-15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges on the side, if desired.
5. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days.
