Honey Dijon Salmon, Roasted Potatoes and Sautéed Veggies

This isn’t just one recipe, but three. Yes, you get three recipes for the price of one. It must be your lucky day! I prepared this meal recently over on Facebook.com/KidCasts. If you’d like to feel like I’m cooking right along side you, grab your mobile device, pull up the video and let’s get cooking!

If you’d rather just read the recipe, then here it is. Enjoy! This is a quick and cheap one (if you can get your salmon on sale or find it frozen at your local Aldi). You could also use shrimp or scallops instead of the fish filets. And don’t feel locked into salmon – use whatever fish looks best to you at the store.

If you’re doing a Whole 30 or 21 Day Sugar Detox, you can leave the honey out of the sauce and substitute with fresh squeezed orange juice. Just microwave for two minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, to reduce it to a syrup.

Instructions
  1. You can do this step earlier in the day or even the day before to make dinner prep that much faster. Add water to a large saucepan, add about 2 teaspoons salt and your potatoes (just scrubbed, peels still on). Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook until almost done. You will know they're ready when you pierce each potato with a knife and you get just a tiny bit of resistance. This should take about 20-25 minutes from the time you put the potatoes in the cold water.
  2. Remove potatoes and set aside until ready to crisp up in the oven. If you boiled your potatoes earlier in the day, refrigerate them.
  3. Preheat oven to 475. Add 2 Tbsp. oil to a large rimmed sheet pan* and place that in the oven while it heats. Meanwhile, cut your potatoes into bite sized pieces. Lay out your fish on paper towels and blot dry. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on both sides of the fish.
  4. Once oven has reached 475 degrees, remove sheet pan and carefully place potatoes into hot oil. It should sizzle! Toss with a spatula to coat each potato with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and return to oven for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, make the sauce for your fish by combining honey, dijon, vinegar, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Microwave on high for one minute, stirring half way through. Set aside.
  6. After 5 minutes, stir potatoes and bake 5 minutes more. Now start your shallots by heating a large non-stick pan over medium heat and adding about a teaspoon of oil. Add shallots, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and stir occasionally for 5 minutes.
  7. Pull out your potatoes, stir again, scoot them to one side of the pan, add your salmon, spoon half the sauce over the top of each piece of fish and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
  8. Now turn the heat on your skillet to high, add a little more oil and all your vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir well. We are cooking on high because we want them crisp, not mushy. You will need to stir every minute or so.
  9. Pull out your salmon and potatoes, check for doneness. If salmon flakes easily with your fork or the tip of your knife, it's ready. Turn the oven to broil on high, spoon the rest of the sauce over your fish, stir the potatoes and broil for 2-3 minutes. Keep stirring your vegetables until they're done to your liking.
  10. Everything should be done now and you can congratulate yourself on putting together a super delicious and healthy meal in such a short amount of time. Yay you!
Recipe Notes

*This is my favorite sheet pan. I have about five of them and use them almost every day!
