have a happy new year: oven-roasted salmon, potatoes & broccoli

oven-roasted salmon,  potatoes & broccoli | everybody likes sandwiches

I love the concept of beginning a new year. The idea of a clean slate appeals with its whiff of minty freshness. 2014 was full of struggles and difficulties and I’m glad to leave it in the dust. But out of the dust and dark, come things I’d never thought I’d be into. Like yoga. I don’t know if it’s really helping with my anxiety, but I do like to breathe and stretch and I’ve picked up a whole load of giggle-worthy Rodney Yee-isms. Hello, 2015, I’ll be pleased to meet you full on with adventures, possibilities and “soft eyes” (<< that’s my Rodney Yee-ism for you).

This one-dish meal is a good recipe to keep in your repertoire. It’s simple and there’s not too much crazy prep and it tastes luxurious. A simple way to keep up your spirits and have a delicious dinner on the table.

First you roast up some potatoes, then add some lemony-garlic broccoli and some salmon filets and back into the oven it goes. 10 minutes later, dinner is served. The broccoli is slightly tender with some crunch and the salmon is nice and moist. If you like a more charred or well-done broccoli, you can cook it along with the potatoes or roast them for 10 or 15 minutes before adding the salmon. It’s up to you.

I should also mention that I have a winner for the Mark Bittman cookbook giveaway. The Random Number Generator selected number 32, so Kiva was notified over a week ago about the win. Congratulations! Thank you everyone who provided great tips and ideas and helping to make my first giveaway such a success.

Happy New Year!! Thanks for helping to make this little corner of the internet such a nice, happy little place πŸ™‚

    This was scrumptuous! I cut the potatoes thin as we like them crispy. So quick and easy, will definitely add to our favorites, thanks!

    Tried this today and it was a big hit with the family. We roasted some asparagus with it too, which worked well.

    I love this combination of foods! Totally gluten-free and super healthy. So glad to hear that yoga is working for you. I cancelled my gym membership this week and I’m going to return to swimming again. I find it so much more calming, than spending an hour on the treadmill. What are Rodney Yee-isms…do tell. Here’s wishing you a super-duper year of fun adventures, great food and no more anxiety!

    Joanne, you’ll have to get a Rodney Yee dvd from the library to find out πŸ™‚ He’s actually pretty great, but I always giggle when he says things like “soft eyes”. Swimming is something I’d like to try more of. Have a great year!!
