How to make Sheet Pan Salmon and Vegetables
Making the Marinade
This olive oil marinade is so simple, but so flavorful. You likely already have everything on hand to make it; just from your fridge and pantry staples.
It's a simple mix of olive oil, capers, dijon mustard, fresh dill, garlic, salt and pepper. Simply mix everything together in a small bowl and set aside until you are ready to use it. I love cooking with simple marinades. They make everything taste better.
Prepping the Vegetables and Assembly
In a large mixing bowl, toss the veggies in the marinade until they are evenly coated. Next, spread the vegetables out in a single layer across the baking sheet, nestling in the salmon fillet between the veggies. Drizzle the remaining infused olive oil over top.
