Over a week ago when we got together with Valentina, Natalya, Katya & Natasha at the beach for a little bloggers retreat, the first night that we got there I cooked dinner that consisted of this Salmon, Asparagus and mashed potatoes. For our retreat menu, we tried to plan quick but delicious meals since we cook at home all the time and this was a time to relax. The girls and I really enjoyed our dinner and they asked that I post a recipe. Originally our plan was to make roasted potatoes just like the ones I have in this post, but it was late, we were hungry and needed something quicker, so roasted potatoes were replaced with mashed potatoes.

What I really enjoy about this one pan meal, is that it requires minimal prep, all is done pretty much in one pan and does not call for any fancy ingredients. I sprinkled the salmon with mustard powder, paprika and ginger powder, but if I don’t have those in my spice drawer, I’ll just go with a basic garlic powder, salt and pepper. Salmon is amazing as is, so it doesn’t need much. Even salt, pepper, butter and a lemon circle will do. It’s really up to you.

Usually I buy a large salmon fillet, cut it to portion size (4-6 oz), tightly wrap in plastic wrap and place in the freezer. We don’t have a large family, so we can never eat the whole fillet at once, portioning and freezing salmon works great because not only can we have salmon whenever we want, but then we save money by buying a larger fillet.

Want to know another great thing about this meal? It’s only around 550 calories and is a great source of good fats, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, Phosphorus, and Selenium.

This meal has so many great things going for it, there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be on a weekly or at least monthly rotation. Don’t you think?

Life is hard, but at least dinner doesn’t have to be.

Either in the baking pan or in a ziplock bag combine potatoes, 3/4 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and 3 tablespoons of the garlic/oil mixture. Toss together until thoroughly coated. Place on a parchment paper or foil lined baking pan and space evenly placing the potatoes cut side down. Place in a preheated to 450F oven.

Bake for about 20 minutes and flip the potatoes cut side up. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and almost but not quite done. Move all potatoes to one corner of the baking pan, making space for the salmon and asparagus.

Add the salmon to the baking pan, spacing it about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with salt (about 1 tsp). Brush the top of the salmon with the oil/garlic mixture. Generously sprinkle with ground mustard (2 teaspoons), followed by a light sprinkle of paprika (1 teaspoon) and a very light sprinkle of ground ginger  (1/2 teaspoon).

Now either on the spare side of the baking sheet or in a different bowl, toss the asparagus with 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black ground pepper and the remainder of the garlic/oil mixture (about 1 tablespoon). If there isn’t enough of the garlic/oil mixture, give a light drizzle of regular olive oil.

Place the baking sheet with potatoes, salmon & asparagus back in the 450F oven for another 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon, or until the salmon is cooked all the way through.

At the end, the potatoes should be soft and cooked through, so should the salmon. The asparagus will be cooked with still a slight crispiness on the inside.

    Excited to try this.. we eat a lot of salmon in our house. Is the cooking time not too much for the potatoes? I usually cook mine for no more than 25-30 minutes on 450° and they’re like fall apart.. Maybe your pieces are bigger..
