Ingredients

Protein

salmon filet4 6-ounces, boneless and skinless

Dry Goods

mayonnaise1/3 cup
olive oil3 tablespoons

Produce

lemon juice2 teaspoons
broccoli2 heads, cut into florets

Spices

dried marjoram1 teaspoon
freshly cracked pepperto taste
Kosher saltto taste

Instructions

Mayonnaise slathered on salmon filets keep them moist and delectable in the dry heat of the oven and creates a smooth, flavorful sauce. Cook these filets alongside broccoli for a full meal on the sheet pan. 

No salmon? Any other tender, flaky fish will work here as well. 

No broccoli? Swap in other hearty vegetables like green beans, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts. 

  1. Preheat oven to 425*F and line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper. Lightly spray the foil or paper with cooking spray or rub with a light coating of olive oil.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and marjoram in a large bowl until combined. Arrange the salmon filets on one end of the sheet pan, and divide the mayonnaise mixture on top of each filet. Use a spoon to spread the mayo mixture so it evenly covers the top of the fish. 
  3. Separate the florets of broccoli from the stems, breaking the florets into bite-sized pieces. In the same bowl used for the mayonnaise, combine the broccoli, olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss to combine until the broccoli is coated.
  4. Spread the broccoli on the other side of the sheet pan. 
  5. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and the sprouts have softened and are slightly browned.

Prep it for later:
1. Prep the mayonnaise mixture in a small resealable bag or container.
