Five-Ingredient Dinner: Baked Salmon With Seasoned Broccoli

Just in time to cure your middle-of-the-winter, sick-of-pasta blues, we’re so pleased to announce the return of the popular five-ingredient dinners series. We begin with this beauty from Cup of Jo reader Caroline. It’s a favorite for being, in her words, “super quick and healthy.” Added bonus? It all roasts on one sheet pan. Here’s how to make it…

Five-Ingredient Dinner: Baked Salmon With Seasoned Broccoli

Sheet Pan Salmon with Broccoli
Serves 2
Note: The recipe can be doubled, but you might need to use two quarter baking sheets instead of a single full one to accommodate the extra broccoli.

2 6-ounce salmon fillets
Brown sugar
Chili powder
About 3 cups broccoli florets
“Everything but the Bagel” seasoning (look for Simply Organic brand or Trader Joe’s)

Heat oven to 425ºF. Place salmon fillets in the center of a full size baking sheet. Rub salmon with olive oil,* a little brown sugar, and a pinch of chili powder, salt, and pepper. Toss broccoli florets with a tablespoon or two of olive oil (until everything is lightly coated, but not dripping) then arrange broccoli around salmon. Bake the salmon and broccoli until cooked through and the broccoli is brown and crispy in spots, 10-15 minutes. Toss the broccoli with “Everything but the Bagel Seasoning” and serve.

*We are conveniently not counting olive oil, salt or pepper in ingredient totals.
