If you’re looking for a super simple healthy dish to feed your family, this sweet and tangy One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon and Broccoli is your answer!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Add this One Pan Sesame Ginger Salmon and Broccoli to your menu to help lighten your load and enjoy a nutritious and delicious dinner.
