Nutritional Powerhouses Working Together

These components aren’t just flavorful; they’re nutritional powerhouses. Let’s take a look at the benefits you will be getting from this meal:

  • Salmon: Boasting omega-3 fatty acids that promote brain and heart health. Its swift and simple preparation makes it a weeknight winner.
  • Sweet Potatoes: Packing a punch of vitamins and contributing a natural sweetness to your meal. Roasting intensifies their flavor, resulting in irresistible caramelized bites that complement the others on the plate.
  • Broccoli: Another vitamin- and mineral-rich food. Roasting tempers its mild bitterness while maintaining a satisfying crunch.

Prep Time: 10 minutes            Cook Time: 30-35 minutes            Yield: 4 servings          Serving Size: 1 salmon filet & ~2 cups of vegetable mixture (1 cup + roasted broccoli, ½ cup roasted sweet potato)


  • 4 6-oz salmon filets
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (1 pinch for salmon, 1 pinch for vegetables)
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 6 oz each)
  • 6 cups broccoli florets


  • 2 sheet pans – one for salmon and vegetables, the second for extra vegetables.


Prep and Preheat:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) with a rack placed in the middle.
  2. Line two rimmed baking sheets with tin foil.

Prep Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and then cut them into 1-inch cubes or french fry form.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes with ½ Tbsp of olive oil, a pinch of salt, and a sprinkle of black pepper.
  3. Spread the seasoned sweet potato onto one of the lined baking sheets.

Roast Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Place the sweet potato-filled baking sheet in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Prep Salmon and Broccoli:

  1. While the sweet potatoes roast, prepare the salmon by drizzling up to 1 Tbsp of olive oil over the filets and seasoning them with a pinch of salt and black pepper to taste.
  2. Toss the broccoli florets with the remaining ½ Tbsp of olive oil, a pinch of salt, and a sprinkle of black pepper in the same bowl used for the sweet potatoes.

Add Salmon and Broccoli:

  1. Gently flip the roasted sweet potatoes on the baking sheet to ensure even cooking, and to create space for the salmon filets and broccoli.
  2. Lay the salmon filets on one side and arrange the seasoned broccoli on the other side of the baking sheet.

Bake Together:

  1. Place the baking sheet back in the oven and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes.
  2. The salmon should easily flake when tested with a fork, and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the salmon should read 125ºF, which takes about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. The vegetables should be tender and slightly browned.


  1. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  2. Plate the roasted sweet potatoes, salmon, and broccoli for a delicious and balanced meal.

Tips and tricks:

  1. Seasoning Ideas: After cooking, you can add more flavors. Try a little lemon juice, fresh herbs, or your favorite spices.
  2. Extra Pan of Veggies: If you make extra veggies, you can use them in various meals throughout the week.
