Spicy salmon and garlic parmesan veggies grilled in one pan, a healthy and flavorful dinner recipe ready in 20 minutes
Last couple of days were so busy I hadn’t had time for blogging, but I’m back with a great new recipe. This time I prepared a healthy and colorful one pan dish: baked spicy salmon with garlicky veggies. In my sheet pan were carrots, green beans, cherry tomatoes and zucchini slices, all seasoned with salt and garlic powder and sprinkled with grated Parmesan in the last minutes of baking. Adding Parmesan or any other grated cheese to vegetables is optional, the veggies are just perfect with the garlic and salt.
We are huge salmon fans. Besides it’s delicious and has a lot of health benefits, it can be prepared in less than 30 minutes in so many different ways. Let’s talk about why salmon is called superfood! Salmon is nutrient dense, great source of protein, minerals and vitamins and contains a so-called “healthy fat” a specific type of unsaturated fat – Omega-3 fatty acid. So can you tell me a better choice for a quick healthy dinner other than salmon? Me neither! :)
The salmon was seasoned with salt, black pepper, garlic powder and thyme, before serving I sprinkled them with freshly chopped parsley. There is no need to marinade the fish, using just spices makes the salmon to taste fabulous.
The salmon is usually ready in 12-18 minutes, which is also enough time for vegetables to cook. We like our veggies a little bit crunchy (especially the carrots and zucchini), so I grilled them for 20 minutes, then I sprinkled them with grated Parmesan and put them back in the oven for another 2 minutes, but feel free to remove the pan sooner to have softer veggies.
This super quick one pan dish is rich in healthy fats, vitamins and protein, is also gluten-free and low-carb. Feel free to use your favorite vegetables, fresh or frozen, with or without Parmesan.
