This sheet pan soy ginger glazed salmon with broccoli is an easy and healthy weeknight meal the whole family will love.
Why this recipe works
Sheet pan meals are perfect for a busy weeknight when you want minimal cooking and cleaning. Minimal effort doesn’t mean minimal flavor thanks to the soy ginger marinade and glaze in this easy salmon and broccoli bake. The slight char of the roasted broccoli pairs really well with the sweet soy ginger glazed salmon. The best part is there is only about 10-15 minutes of work involved and just one pan to clean afterwards.
Preparing the salmon
When I make this sheet pan salmon and broccoli I like to cut the salmon into serving size portions. That way the marinade and glaze can cover all of the sides on each piece and get maximum flavor. However, if you are serving a crowd it does look impressive to use a whole side of salmon and serve it up on a platter surrounded by the roasted broccoli.
How to make the marinade
- Mix vegetable oil, soy sauce, honey, mirin, ginger and garlic and some freshly ground black paper. Then pour half of the mixture into a large plastic bag, glass baking dish, or bowl with your salmon and reserve the other half to make the glaze.
- Refrigerate the salmon for 30 minutes to an hour turning occasionally.
- While the salmon marinates cut your broccoli into small bite sized pieces, around ½ to 1 inch. The small size will help ensure the broccoli and salmon are done at the same time. Then toss with some olive oil and a little salt.
How to cook the sheet pan salmon
After marinating, set salmon on a foil lined sheet pan with the skin side down. Then arrange the broccoli around the sides and place in a 400°F oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon reaches your desired doneness and the broccoli is cooked through.
Make the soy ginger glaze
While the salmon cooks, pour the reserved half of your marinade into a sauce pan and heat on medium low. Bring to a simmer then reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until sauce is thickened.
When your salmon is done, brush on the glaze, top with some additional sesame seeds then plate and serve with the roasted broccoli.
Tips and FAQs
Store leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 300°F oven until warmed through or in the microwave.
Like most sheet pan dinners this dish is really flexible. You can substitute pretty much any veggie you like. The key is to cut them to a size where they will cook in about the same amount of time as your salmon.
If you use watery veggies like zucchini and squash I recommend baking those on a separate sheet pan or using foil to create a divider to contain the moisture.
