Ingredients You’ll Need


Coconut aminos (1/2 cup) – It’s a healthier, low-sodium alternative for soy sauce. It’s made from coconut palm and sea salt. Therefore, it’s free of soy, wheat, and gluten.

Rice vinegar (1 tbsp) – High in vitamins and minerals. It’s a commonly used ingredient in Asian cooking and adds a punch of flavor that makes a big difference in the meal.

Sesame oil (2 tsp) – It’s another item used quite often in Asian cuisine. Sesame oil is high in antioxidants and contains anti-inflammatory properties.

You can use any other cooking oil as a substitute, but it’s recommended to stick to sesame oil. You’ll want that distinctive flavor with the salmon.

Garlic (3 cloves) – Found in many forms, making it an easy-to-use cooking ingredient. You can use it in its freshest form (whole cloves) for the best flavor.

Ground ginger (1/4 tsp) – Known for its immune-boosting properties. Using ground ginger here allows you to get the great flavor without fiddling with a fresh ginger nub.

Honey (3 tbsp) – It adds sweetness to the dish as well as more immune-boosting properties. It’s one of the best all-natural sweeteners available. Try to find raw honey, if possible, for the best benefits.

Cornstarch (1 tbsp) – Thickening agent used in cooking. Cornstarch is gluten-free.

Sesame seeds (1 tsp) – They are a great source of fiber. They add texture and flavor to the final dish.

Water (1 tbsp)

Salmon and Vegetables

Sweet potatoes (2, cubed)– One of the best starchy alternatives to add to your meal plan when you’re trying to lose weight and stay healthy. They are high in fiber and lower in calories than other potatoes.

Extra virgin olive oil (2.5 tbsp) – A cooking oil that will help keep your heart healthy and cholesterol down. You may substitute it with oil if you prefer.

Salmon fillets (4) – Wonderful source of protein. It’s also high in antioxidants and healthy fats that our body needs.

Broccoli florets (2 cups) – One of the healthiest vegetables you can add to your diet. It pairs wonderfully with the sauce in this recipe and the salmon.

White onion (1) – Onions are a low-calorie cooking vegetable that adds a ton of flavor. It’s hard to find a good savory recipe without them!

Red bell pepper (1) – High in vitamin C and plenty of other vitamins and minerals. Cooking with them adds texture and a little bit of sweetness to the recipe.

Salt and black pepper

How to Make One Pan Salmon Dinner

Step 1. To start the sauce, add the coconut aminos, sesame oil, garlic, rice vinegar, and honey to a small saucepot. Heat the pot to medium-high heat and whisk together.

While the sauce gets hot, combine the cornstarch and water in a separate bowl. Make sure the cornstarch is completely dissolved.

Step 2. Next, slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the saucepot. Continue to stir as you pour it in. After that, bring the mixture to a simmer, and the sauce should start to thicken.

The final step is to add the sesame seeds. Set the sauce for your one-pan dinner aside until you’re ready to use it.

Step 3. Preheat the oven to 400F. Toss the sweet potatoes with a teaspoon of olive oil. Spread the sweet potatoes out onto a sheet tray. Place the sheet tray in the 400F oven and bake for about 15 minutes.

When the potatoes are done, push them to the edge of the pan to make room for the other ingredients.

Step 4. Prep the other vegetables and toss them with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Step 5. Next, place the salmon in the middle of the sheet tray. Brush about ½ tablespoon of olive oil onto the salmon fillets. Then season them with salt and pepper.

Step 6. Now, lay the other vegetables around the salmon.

Step 7. Before placing it in the oven, drizzle most of the sauce over the salmon and vegetables.

Step 8. Now, you’ll bake the salmon and vegetables for around 15 minutes or until the salmon is thoroughly cooked. It should be flakey when you cut into it.

Once everything is cooked, pour the remaining sauce over the pan before serving.

How Do You Know if Salmon is Cooked?

Salmon is a unique fish in that it’s pink in color before and after cooking. So, how do we know if it’s fully-cooked?

When salmon is cooked, it should be a much lighter pink. It will also be flakey and easy to cut into once it’s cooked. Make sure that the center is not the bright pink it was before cooking.
