How to make a salmon sheet pan dinner
- Mix together the marinade for the salmon in a flat dish. Combine soy sauce, olive oil, honey, lime juice, minced garlic, and ginger, then place the salmon skin side up in the dish. Leave at room temperature for about 15 minutes while you prep the vegetables.
- Peel and dice the butternut squash and trim and halve the Brussels sprouts. Place them in a large bowl or directly on the sheet pan and toss with olive oil, garlic, and spices.
- Roast the vegetables for 12 minutes, then push to the sides of the pan to make room for the salmon filets.
- Place the salmon in the center of the sheet pan skin side down and pour the marinade on top. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
- Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds and serve!
