One-Pan Honey Mustard Salmon

Is there anything more satisfying than only dirtying one cooking implement for dinner while spending minimal time actually cooking?

Yes, but this is pretty dang rewarding too.

Especially if you’re a dork 🙂

This meal serves 2 with a little left over, comes together in under an hour, and can be dressed a bunch of different ways depending on what you have on hand.

For instance, you may notice some decidedly non-broccolini green stuff on my plate that isn’t in the recipe. That’s because I had a literal hand full of snow peas that needed using up, so I threw them in. Feel free to do the same, just note that if you have something like a carrot that takes forever to cook, you might want to add that in with the potatoes rather than the greens.

Also good to note: the sauce on this dish isn’t the overly sweet, sticky sauce I generally think of when I think ‘honey mustard’ (you know, like the radioactive yellow dressing from a ton of US restaurants that comes straight from Sysco central processing. Which I love in memory theory). This sauce is light and delicate with just a hint of sweet.

One-Pan Honey Mustard Salmon

Baby potatoes
Oil, salt & pepper
2 large cloves garlic
2 tsp. grainy mustard
2 tsp. honey
1 Tbsp. butter

Preheat your oven to 200c (400f) and prep a baking sheet with foil.

Arrange your baby potatoes in a single layer in one third of the pan. Sprinkle with 2 tsp. of your favorite oil, salt & pepper and toss.

Bake 20 mins.

Add your broccolini to the other third of the pan, toss with 2 tsp. oil & salt and pepper.

Bake 10 minutes.

While that is baking, mince the garlic and add with the honey, mustard & butter to a heat-proof vessel. Zap until the butter is melted and stir.

Add the salmon meat side down to the middle, sprinkle with 1 tsp. oil + salt & pepper, slather in sauce, flip and repeat.

Sprinkle any remaining sauce over everything else.

Bake 5 mins, flip, and broil if you have the ability an additional 2-3 minutes to crisp that skin up a bit.


Serves 2 for dinner with a little left over.
