Easy Sheet Pan Brown Sugar Baked Salmon and Vegetables, a light southern dinner you can enjoy any time of year!
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.
It’s simple to make and packed with flavor!
Robyn’s Add A Pinch Cookbook was just released in book stores and on Amazon. It’s filled with true southern favorites you can make in a hurry, as well as updated lighter renditions of traditionally heavy meals.
I loved reading the stories behind Robyn’s recipes, as well as the in-depth cooking notes, and the tips for turning leftovers into something new and tasty!
The stunning photos are the perfect complement to this deliciously appealing book of down home meals.
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.
See how easy that was?
