Meal planning for the the week ahead can be difficult (almost impossible some weeks). I think we all know the familiar feeling of coming home, hitting the couch, and not wanting to cook. But with a hungry family waiting for dinner, plopping on couch with a cup of instant soup is not a reality. But don’t fret – sheet pan suppers to the rescue.
Sheet pan suppers are a great option for easy weeknight dinners. Prep, cook time, and cleanup are speedy with these one-pan recipes.
Dijon salmon with green beans cooks in about 15 minutes (is that a sigh of relief I hear?) and preparing the meal is just as quick. Preheat your toaster oven (or standard oven) to 400 degrees. Place salmon fillets skin-side down on the sheet pan, then arrange your vegetables around the fillets. We used green beans, bell peppers, and leeks. We coated the vegetables and drizzled the salmon with a rich but simple sauce made with olive oil, soy sauce, dijon mustard and garlic.
Not only is this meal done and ready to serve in under 30 minutes, it’s delicious. The salmon cooks to perfection in the toaster oven and the vegetables have just the right amount of crunch. The tangy dijon sauce marries well with the creamy, flaky fish and colourful vegetables while they cook together.
Keep this sheet pan supper in your weeknight dinner rotation and you’ll have zero problem checking “homemade dinner” off your ever-growing to-do list.
