What you need to make our One-pan roasted salmon with broccoli and tomatoes
I am so excited to share this recipe with you, so let's get started. Like I said, very few ingredients needed for this wonderful salmon dish. Here is your shopping list:
- Salmon fillets (we used frozen wild Sockeye salmon)

- Evo oil

Time to put our One-pan roasted salmon with broccoli and tomatoes together
I told you it was easy, and it really is. We just put everything on a baking pan, however, some prep is needed. Here is how the process goes:
- Firstly, if using frozen salmon, thaw, then rinse and pat dry with some paper towel.
- Secondly, put a pot of water to boil. Cut the head of broccoli into florets, wash, then place in the pot of boiling water and blanch for 5-7 minutes, depending on the size of your florets. Take out and let drain in a colander.
- Then, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Season your salmon fillets on both sides with evo oil, salt, pepper, and oregano. Put them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Lastly, throw your blanched broccoli florets, garlic, and halved grape tomatoes into a bowl. Drizzle some olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and give a good toss. Place those seasoned veggies all around the salmon pieces, and into the oven it goes, for about 15 minutes.

Time for the finishing touch
We are almost done. But first, we have to dress the dish with some vinaigrette. Here is what we do:
- Take your fresh basil and parsley and chop it up.
- Zest 1 teaspoon lemon into a bowl. Then drizzle olive oil and squeeze lemon juice in, along with the maple syrup.
- Throw in chopped, parsley, basil, and just a pinch of salt (which is optional, since we have already salted both the fish and the vegetables).
- Give it a good whisk. Taste and adjust if it needs more acidity (add a little more lemon juice), or sweetness (add a touch more maple syrup).
- Take salmon and vegetables out of the oven, and drizzle the lemon-herb vinaigrette over the salmon, broccoli, and grape tomatoes.

Time to taste our One-pan roasted salmon with broccoli and tomatoes
Truly, I don't know where to start, it all looks and more so, smells delicious. Maybe I will start with the salmon. You know your salmon is cooked well when it just flakes as you place your fork into it. Looks super juicy, too. The flavor is wonderful. Hints of oregano and that dressing comes in with a wonderfully balanced acidity due to the maple syrup. The broccoli is al dente and its earthiness pairs really well with the lemon-herb vinaigrette. I have to say these roasted grape tomatoes are super sweet, especially the yellow ones, and are just explosions of flavor in your mouth. Truly a delightful taste and texture experience!
In conclusion, I really enjoy cooking with people. It is definitely an intimate and interactive experience for me. Thank you for joining us in the kitchen and enjoy this wonderful meal you prepared with family and friends!
