Spicy Apricot Salmon with Vegetables

Spicy Apricot Salmon with Vegetables

30-minute dinner with minimum prep, less dishes and maximum flavor. Sounds too good to be true? Yes, this spicy apricot salmon with asparagus and mushroom, roasted in one pan, is a REAL DEAL! I promise you the most delicious and effortless dinner in minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 16 spears of asparagus
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (4-6oz) skinless salmon filets
  • 2 tablespoons spicy apricot jam

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with an aluminum foil.
  2. Trim asparagus about 2 inches from the bottom.
  3. Drizzle olive oil on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle half of the salt and black pepper.
  4. Place salmon filets in the middle of the pan and arrange the vegetables around the fish.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper all over the fish and vegetables.
  6. Spread apricot jam on both filets.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes. Depending on the thickness of the fish, it’ll take more or less. I prefer to cook the fillets until internal temp reaches around 135°F.
