It’s so fast that you’ll want to make fast side dishes to go with it. Toss green beans with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and roast them on a baking sheet in the oven alongside the salmon. Make a pot of quick-cooking couscous or quinoa while the roasting is going on and everything should be ready at the same time. (Don’t miss: How To Cook Quinoa)

Smoky Maple-Mustard Salmon
It doesn’t get much easier—or more delicious—than this speedy recipe for roast salmon topped with a smoky maple-mustard sauce. The sweetness of the maple balances the tangy mustard; smoked paprika or ground chipotle adds another layer of flavor. Ask at the fish counter to have the salmon cut into four 4-ounce fillets with the skin removed. Serve with roasted green beans and whole-wheat couscous tossed with pecans and chives.
