If you want to see my step-by-step instructions, read on. I have a printable recipe card at the end you can skip to if that’s easier too.
The first step is to mix up your marinade. You’ll need to let the salmon marinade for at least an hour, so every piece of meat soaks up the spices.
While you are doing this, preheat your oven to DEGREES.
The marinade is only 4 ingredients. You can even make extra and use it again on pork or chicken. It even makes a killer salad dressing!
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon in the middle of the cookie sheet, place the broccoli around the salmon, spray with olive oil and salt/pepper broccoli to taste. I use the EVO oil sprayer to get just enough olive oil on the broccoli, it is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets.
Look – all your ingredients on one baking sheet. And when you line it with parchment paper, you save yourself a lot of cleaning hassle too! Now it is ready to bake in the oven for 20 minutes at DEGREES.
