This 30 minute meal is about as easy as it gets! Delicious roasted vegetables and honey garlic salmon all cook together on one pan!
We are getting into what is, for many, one of the busiest times of year. When I think about all of the holiday preparations that are do be done in the next two months, I mostly feel excited because I love this time of year. But I do feel a little overwhelmed when I think about shopping for gifts. Choosing the perfect present for everyone on my list stresses me out! I’m determined to get my shopping done early this year… but I say that most years and so far it has yet to happen. 😉
With all of the holiday festivities (and food!) that are to come, easy and healthy meals are just what we need right now. This Honey Garlic Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner just might become a weekly go-to meal in my house, and maybe yours too. This sheet pan dinner is a complete meal, with protein, vegetable, and starch, so you don’t have to think about preparing other side dishes.
Today is the first Thursday of the month – which means it’s 30 Minute Thursday time! If you’re new to the series, on the first Thursday of every month some of my favorite bloggers and I have teamed up to bring you a bunch of delicious and easy 30 minute meals. Naturally, this Honey Garlic Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner can be made in just 30 minutes from start to finish. And some of that time is inactive time! Once you pop the pan in the oven, you are free to clean up your kitchen, or sit down with a glass of wine… whatever makes you happy.
Clean up for this sheet pan salmon and veggies is a breeze, too! Lining the baking sheet with foil is key here so you’re not left scrubbing your pan clean at the end of the night. Besides the one baking sheet, you’ll just use one small bowl and a few measuring spoons to mix up the honey garlic sauce. Almost no dishes to wash = major win!
One of my favorite things about this Honey Garlic Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner is that it’s endlessly customizable. You can switch out the veggies based on what’s in season and what you have on hand. Zucchini, bell peppers, asparagus, sweet potatoes, carrots, your personal favorite vegetable… the choice is yours.
