September 15, 2019 | by b davis
It’s that time of year again. The kids are back in school and all of their after school activities have started back up. This means that dinners need to be quick and healthy. Sheet pan meals are easy to put together and a breeze to clean up. This recipe is a no brainer with only 6 ingredients and is ready in about 30 minutes.
Maple Glazed Salmon with Sweet Potato and Green Beans
- 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for drizzling
- 6 -12 oz of frozen cut green beans
- 4 salmon fillets about 4-6 ounces each
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper
- Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
- Spread sweet potatoes onto prepared pan and drizzle with olive oil, or more as needed to fully coat the potatoes.
- Roast for 10-15 minutes, or until potatoes are just about fork-tender.
- While potatoes are roasting, prepare glaze for salmon. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, mustard, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
- Remove potatoes from oven and turn oven setting to BROIL on “high.” Spread potatoes to outer edges of sheet pan to make room in the center for the fish. Add green beans to other side of baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
- Place salmon in center of tray, leaving at least ½-inch of space in between each fillet so that they cook evenly. Brush glaze on top of each piece of salmon.
- Broil for 7-10 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork and top is browned and crispy. Potatoes and green beans should be roasted and tender as well. The total broiling time will depend on the size and thickness of your fish.
Having fish once a week is important for any diet, especially growing minds. This recipe is sure to be a hit for everyone in the family!

Chicken and Pear Salad with Blue Cheese and Caramelized Nuts
Once in a lifetime comes a truly great salad, and this main course salad is the one for me. The crunch of sugared nuts, juicy bites of crisp pear, and the savor of seasoned chicken that explodes with freshness when mixed with Gorgonzola cheese. What’s not to love?
