When it comes to a quick & easy dinner, you really can’t beat a sheet-pan meal where you throw everything together on one pan, add some flavor and seasoning, toss it in the oven, and 15 minutes later, dinner is served! This Sheet-Pan Citrus Salmon & Broccolette by WeekNight Bite is light, refreshing and flavorful. The ingredients in this recipe are super simple, so quality is key to really let them shine.
Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Zest the lemon and the orange – you’ll need enough zest to measure 1/2 tsp total. Add the zest to a small bowl and mix with 1 tbsp avocado oil, 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 minced garlic cloves, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Place the salmon fillets on the parchment-lined baking sheet and brush each fillet with the avocado oil / citrus zest mixture. Then arrange the broccolette around the salmon. You can also place the salmon on one end of the sheet, and broccolette on the other for ease of tossing it halfway through.
Drizzle the broccolette with avocado oil (or use avocado oil spray) and season with salt and pepper.
Slice the orange and lemon into thin slices, then arrange them on top of the salmon. Cut a few of the lemon slices in half (into half-moon shapes) and scatter over the broccolette.
Tear or chop the fresh dill and scatter it over the salmon and broccolette. Save some fresh dill for garnish when everything is finished baking.
Give the citrus slices one more spray with avocado oil (or just brush them with any of the remaining oil/zest mixture) and a season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 10 minutes, flipping broccolette halfway through. Then switch the oven to broil for the last 2-4 minutes or until the salmon is flaky and cooked to your preference. Watch it carefully, as it can overcook quickly under the broiler! If using an internal temperature thermometer (my favorite way to make sure salmon is cooked perfectly), cook until it reaches 140°.
Remove from oven and garnish with the remaining fresh dill. Enjoy!
