Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.

  • Combine mayonnaise and chili powder in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Toss sweet potatoes with 2 tsp. oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper in a medium bowl. Spread on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toss broccoli with the remaining 2 tsp. oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper in the same bowl. Remove the baking sheet from oven. Stir the sweet potatoes and move them to the sides of the pan. Arrange salmon in the center of the pan and spread the broccoli on either side, among the sweet potatoes. Spread 2 Tbsp. of the mayonnaise mixture over the salmon. Bake until the sweet potatoes are tender and the salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, add lime zest and lime juice to the remaining 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise; mix well.

  • Divide the salmon among 4 plates and top with cheese and cilantro. Divide the sweet potatoes and broccoli among the plates and drizzle with the lime-mayonnaise sauce. Serve with lime wedges and any remaining sauce.

This was really, really good! DH had always thought he didn’t like salmon, this recipe changed his mind. Easy to make with all fresh ingredients. I will make one change next time I make this. I will use only one lime; less juice in the leftover sauce. Read More

Delicious yet unfussy. I substituted 2 tablespoons of yogurt for 2 of mayonnaise and used 1 tablespoon of regular mayonnaise. Agree with other reviewer, my lime was quite juicy so I only used half in the sauce. Otherwise it would have been too thin. Read More

I absolutely LOVED this recipe! It was quick and easy and the sauce with the chili powder and lime gave just the right punch of flavor! This will be in my regular rotation. Be careful not to cook the salmon too long. Read More

This was SO good and surprisingly so considering the simple ingredients and preparation. It's definitely a great alternative to standard salmon recipes when you're looking for a change. I followed the recipe exactly but added a little low fat sour cream to the remaining sauce to thicken it. My husband loved it too! Read More

Oh my gosh this was so yummy. I eat a lot of salmon and needed a different way to cook it. Made just as is with one slight sprinkle of Tajin on the broccoli. Will be making this again and again Read More
