After a week-long vacation, we starting to get back into the swing of things. Starting this week, we are going to cook more and eat a little lighter at home. Making sheet pan meals are easy to make and great for leftovers. This is where Gorton’s Salmon comes in handy! I love that they come in prepackaged filets, 2 in 1 box. Perfect for one meal or double it with two boxes.
#ad I found Gorton’s Natural Catch Grilled Salmon at our local Marianos. These initially caught my attention because they are all-natural, with no artificial colors or GMO ingredients, and sustainably caught! Usually, frozen seafood is filled with lots of junk, so I was interested in trying these. As an added bonus, they are already seasoned and ready in 17 minutes! They are probably some of the better-frozen salmon filets I’ve had. I threw them on a sheet pan with some other veggies and potatoes and lunch was ready in 25 minutes or so! Check out how I seasoned the veggies and plated the meal below.
Cook salmon in 17 minutes or so. Squeeze fresh lemon juice and then I plated them with some dill. Since the filets cook in less time than the veggies and potatoes, you can cook these a little later. They already come seasoned and I didn’t think they needed anything else.
Broccoli, potatoes, and onion
- Bag of frozen broccoli (Fresh works too! We just had some already)
- 1 bag of petite medley potatoes, sliced
- Sliced 1/2 red onion
- Sliced 1/2 lemon
- Squeezed 2-3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
- 1/3 cup everything bagel seasoning
- 2 tbsp garlic powder red pepper flakes to taste
- 1/2 shredded parmesan cheese
Bake the veggies for 25-30 minutes until the potatoes and veggies are cooked through. About halfway, I added the salmon. Once it’s done, squeeze lemon juice, and add parmesan to veggies.
And that’s it! So easy. I think it’s great for lunch or dinner with very little ingredients to plan for the week. If you would like to read more about other easy weeknight meals, you can read more about some other sheet pan and meal ideas here.
If you pick some up at the store, let me know what you think or if you make the veggies and potatoes, tag me at TheChicagoGoodLife.
Until next time,
