Thyme and mustard rubbed salmon with crispy, garlicky roasted potatoes and broccoli—all on one pan—what’s not to love?!
Here lately, we have been eating a lot of one-pan meals. This season of our lives is a very busy one, and any time we can simplify is a major plus! There are so many things to love about one-pan meals; they're incredibly easy to cook, but it's the easy clean up I love the most! I foil my pans carefully so that when everyone is finished eating, clean-up is as simple as removing the foil and tossing it in the garbage, and my busy schedule thanks me for the rest of the day!
But, just because these meals are simple with easy clean-up, that doesn't mean you have to skimp on flavor. In fact, some of my most favorite meals are made just like this. This salmon recipe is no different, and it is absolutely incredible! The ground mustard-rubbed potatoes and broccoli are baked to a crispy perfection, and the fresh thyme makes this meal feel like something you'd order at a fine-dining restaurant. Grab these ingredients for an easy Sunday lunch, or make this for guests; either way, it is sure to be a real crowd-pleaser!
