Ingredients
  

  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 red onion cut into wedges
  • 350 g new potatoes about 20 potatoes or ½ a 680g bag
  • 1 garlic clove finely grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets about 550g, patted dry
  • ¾ tsp salt divided
  • ¾ tsp pepper

Lemon-Parsley Sauce

  • ½ tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped parsley

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Cut broccoli into florets. Peel the stem using a vegetable peeler, trim the bottom and discard, then cut stem into 1-inch slices.
  • Place broccoli florets and stems, onion, potatoes and garlic onto a baking sheet. Toss vegetables with oil and ½ tsp each salt and pepper until coated and garlic is evenly dispersed. Bake 15 minutes.
  • Season salmon on both sides with remaining ¼ tsp each salt and pepper. Flip vegetables, add salmon to baking sheet, pushing vegetables to the sides. Bake 7 minutes. Turn oven to broil; broil until the vegetables are browned and the salmon is just cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Don’t overcook that beautiful salmon! A touch of dark pink in the centre means it’s moist, tender and perfectly cooked.
  • Meanwhile, combine lemon zest and juice, olive oil and parsley in a small bowl. Serve salmon and vegetables drizzled with lemon-parsley sauce.
