Salmon is one of my favorite types of fish to eat. Not only does it have great flavor and texture, it’s healthy, and doesn’t take long to prepare. This One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon & Broccoli will soon become one of your family’s favorite recipes.overhead shot of One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon & Broccoli with green onion garnish on a sheet pan

Both my daughters (only age three and one) LOVE salmon. If you have kids, you know that from one day to the next they can completely change their eating habits and likes/dislikes. One night they will hate chicken and the next night they’ll eat like a pound of it. Salmon is the one protein I can always count on them enjoying which is awesome because first, my husband and I really enjoy it; second, it’s got heart healthy fats; and third, it is so super easy for me to prepare.a metal spoon pouring sauce onto Sesame Ginger Salmon and Broccoli with broccoli in the background

Yes, you have to marinate the salmon but it’s worth it! I usually like to prep this meal the night before because I’d likely forget to prepare it during the middle of the next day. That gives the salmon extra time to soak up all those yummy flavors.Close up of One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon pieces with green onion garnish and broccoli on a sheet pan

When you’re ready to prepare dinner all you have to do is start cooking some rice, pop the salmon and broccoli on a pan to bake, and stir together the glaze. 20 minutes start to finish and you can have a healthy scrumptious dinner on the table.Close up of One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon and Broccoli with green onion garnish and rice, on a plate with a fork

  1. Is there a size for the salmon fillets? Thanks!

  2. I love salmon, but living on a budget…don’t have the extra money to buy all the ingredients your recipe call for…so i used just three ingredients that i had on hand. Was delicious! What i used. Sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and unsalted butter. Marinate for 30 minutes. Served with plain white rice and can of french style green beans…was so tasty! Thanks for throwing salmon my way!

  3. I did it yesterday and it was great! wish could add some photos on this comment so you could check it. best wishes,


  4. I’ve never cooked salmon before so I apologise if this is a silly question, but do you use the salmon fresh out of the refrigerator, or let it come more to room temperature?

  5. Tried the honey garlic salmon after my daughter recommended it. It was delicious as she had said. Will be trying other of your recipes. Sent link to sister in law who had been looking for other salmon recipes. She is a picky eater and needs to eat healthier for health reasons.

  6. I made the salmon this evening and it was excellent. Didn’t have fresh broccoli so I steamed frozen and drizzled the glaze over it when I served the meal. I will make this many times. Thanks.

  7. Made the one pan Sesame Ginger Salmon last night for my family and it was really good! I followed recipe as is except used broccolini instead, just personal taste for this dish. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

  8. Tried the One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon last night. My family does not usually eat fish, but this dish had them asking for more. As most cooks do I changed a few things, mainly the Vegies, but left the salmon alone. This was a good first one to try from the spendwithpennies site, thank you for such a delicious meal.

    Will certainly be trying more.
