one pan salmon recipe
Coat the bottom of an iron skillet, or oven safe skillet with olive oil.
Place the salmon in skin side down and then coat with olive oil. This will help to keep the fish nice and moist while it’s baking.Next, cut the brussel sprouts in half, coat with olive oil and then sprinkle with seasonings.
I like to use salt, pepper, cayenne, basil and chives.Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 17-20 minutes.
That’s it! No need to touch it until it’s done. Just throw it in the oven and forget about it for 20 minutes.
Clean up’s a breeze too … only one pan to clean. Can I get a hallelujah?Add this to your “cooking for one recipes” arsenal.

I use these “lightly dried herbs” with this recipe. I actually use these herbs A LOT! Find them in the produce section of the supermarket. They are really convenient because they are already chopped and they stay fresh for weeks in the fridge. They are perfect for seasoning just about anything!Print
