This easy one-pan roasted salmon with broccoli is quick enough for weeknight dinners but elegant enough for company. The lemony pistachio crust would also be lovely on other types of fish or on chicken breasts.

  • Combine broccoli, garlic, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine pistachios, chives, lemon zest, the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise over each salmon portion and top with the pistachio mixture.

  • Move the broccoli to one side of the baking sheet and place the salmon on the empty side. Roast until the salmon is opaque in the center and the broccoli is just tender, 8 to 15 minutes more, depending on thickness. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

Loved this but I think I overdid it with the pistachios. Next time I'll cut back but this was simply delicious! Read More

Absolutely LOVED this recipe! I did make a few minor changes to the cooking method instead of roasting the broccoli and salmon all together at a high temp I slow roasted the salmon for 30 minutes on 250 and then added another 10 minutes and increased the oven temp to 425 it made the salmon so moist and delicious and also got the topping crispy! I cooked the broccoli separate in my toaster oven at 425 for 15 min and was also perfect! This will definitely be a go to recipe for me! Read More
