This recipe for salmon steaks with roasted vegetables is colorful and super healthy.
Salmon is my favorite fish. I love the richness and color of the flesh and the flavor is so delicious.
This fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is a good source or protein and potassium.
Salmon Steaks with Roasted Vegetables
Roasting vegetables brings out their inner sweetness and fresh herbs add a boost of flavor too. Once you have eaten roasted veggies, you won’t ever want to boil them again! It’s so easy to do, too.
Just make sure that you choose vegetables that are a similar size so they will all be done at the same time. I used butternut squash today, but carrots, broccoli, summer squash and cauliflower also work well.
This recipe combines the rich salmon flavor with the sweetness of freshly roasted vegetables for a delicious main meal.
Best of all, this recipe is done in about 15 minutes from start to finish! You can’t beat that on a busy night!
Add a simple salad of spinach, red onions and tomatoes and dig in!
