We eat salmon at least two or three times a month. We never get tired of moist tender salmon fillets, dressed in all sorts of herbs and spices. It’s a high-protein meal the whole family enjoys and I can feel good about serving.

Today’s Brown Sugar Baked Salmon and Vegetables is a savory-sweet sheet pan dinner I recently tried from my friend Robyn Stones’s new cookbook, Add A Pinch, named after her popular recipe blog.

It’s simple to make and packed with flavor!

And we all loved this simple Sheet Pan Brown Sugar Baked Salmon with Vegetables recipe from the Add A Pinch Cookbook. It’s light and healthy with a touch of decadence from the brown sugar glaze.

To make Brown Sugar Baked Salmon with Vegetables, start by cutting yellow squash, zucchini, and onions into thin slices. I did this with a mandolin slicer.

Lay a large salmon fillet on a baking sheet and spread the veggies around it.

Bake the salmon for 10 minutes. Then spread a mixture of brown sugar and stone ground mustard over the salmon. Bake for a few more minutes.

  2. We’ve been making this with Brussels sprouts cut in half. I add a bit of water around the Brussels sprouts so they can steam while cooking with the fish.
