Salmon and Veggies Fixing to Get Roasted
Salmon isn’t just one of the most healthy options for dinner, it’s also one of the easiest and most delicious. While grilled salmon is something I’ve always been NUTS about, I’ve found that I love oven baked or “roasted” salmon just as much.
I usually roast my salmon with a simple seasoning of salt and pepper or salt and lemon pepper, but the last time I baked salmon, I used a coating of a new seasoning I found at the store – Weber Thai Chili Seasoning (gluten free… whoot!). Every single time I’m in a grocery store, I check three sections religiously, even if what I’m after is no where near them:
- gluten free aisles
- spices and seasonings
I guess I’m afraid something will sneak in and I won’t know about it. I always check the Weber spices and seasonings because they are excellent at labeling their gluten free products. Big, proud, bold letters make this gluten free gal happy. I had actually planned on something entirely different for supper, but when I saw this seasoning, I gathered up salmon and veggies to accompany it.
The delicious Thai Chili seasoning was amazing with the salmon as well as the red pepper slices and asparagus. I’ve also used it with roasted new potatoes and, again, it’s a knock-out.
Side note: This is not a review of this seasoning (sponsored or otherwise)… I thought I’d point that out because it was beginning to sound like a commercial up in here. I just can’t help myself sometimes, you know. Cooking excites me and new “play pretties” get me all worked up.
Simply preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Season your salmon (and, in this case vegetables) with salt, pepper, and (if desired) a special seasoning like Weber’s Thai Chili Seasoning.
Place salmon, skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet or line with foil for super easy clean up.
Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes. If you’re roasting vegetables along with the salmon, check for their “doneness” earlier. I personally like for my asparagus to have a little crunch, so I actually took it out of the oven sooner than the salmon. Next time, I plan to use separate pans and allow the salmon to get a head start… keeping roasted asparagus “perky” while something else finishes cooking is all but impossible.
Look for Weber Seasonings in your store or on Amazon. This is one of the best seasonings I’ve had in a long time.
