If you need a quick dinner idea for tonight, try this easy recipe for Sheet Pan Salmon - a full, balanced meal that comes together in 12 minutes or less.
- 1-2 lbs Fresh Atlantic Salmon Filet, cut into individual portions, ((1.25 lbs yields about 4 moderate servings))
- Salt and Pepper
- 1 pint Cherry tomatoes, (halved)
- 8 ounces Little Salad Bar Fresh Pineapple Spears ((about 4 spears), cut into 1/2" chunks)
- 1 pouch Simply Nature 90 Second Seven Grain ((double this for big appetites))
- 2 cups Fresh spinach leaves
- Arrange the oven rack to the highest position and preheat the broiler to high.
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange salmon slices along one side of the pan. Sprinkle each generously with salt and pepper.
- Arrange the sliced tomatoes and pineapple pieces on the other side of the pan; toss together.
- Place pan under the broiler for about 8 minutes, or until salmon reaches an internal temperature of 135℉ (cook to 140℉ if you prefer your salmon well done).
- Meanwhile, heat grain pouch according to the directions on the package. Roughly chopped spinach and set aside.
- Plate meal by layering first a serving of hot grains, then a handful of fresh spinach, and a salmon filet on top. Spoon cooked tomatoes and pineapple on top of salmon. Serve and enjoy!
Notes: Purchase less salmon if you are feeding a smaller crowd or choose a single serving frozen filet for a serving for one. Frozen salmon should be defrosted before baking and may take less time if it is a thin filet.
Trust the cook time! Overcooking salmon makes it very rubbery.
