Forty Dollars, Four Meals: Sheet Pan Salmon with Roasted Potatoes & Broccolini.

Don’t you love a meal that has very minimal clean up?

My good sis Ms. Sheetpan came through like always and helped me with a delicious dinner that you’ll be making on those night where you just can’t.

All of my favorite players are here we have lemony salmon, we have lil baby potatoes, and my new favorite veggie, broccolini.

Oh and this is one of the $40 meals!

I know it might seem expensive because hi, seafood, but trust me, we can do it!

Let’s get cooking!



Extra Crispy Potatoes:

24 ounces of Golden baby potatoes
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 tablespoon of sea salt
1 tablespoon of rosemary
1 tablespoon of thyme
1 tablespoon of cracked black pepper

Honey Garlic Salmon:

4 filets of farm raised salmon
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Juice of two lemons
1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of chopped garlic
1 tablespoon of cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon of sea salt

For Charred Broccolini:

Two bunches of broccoli
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of sea salt
1/4 cup of white cooking wine
Cracked black pepper, to taste


For Extra Crispy Potatoes:

Okay, we’re going to start cooking what takes the longest first. Have you ever had an undercooked potato? I’m pretty sure that’s what Hell is.

Boil 24 ounces of gold bite sized potatoes for 10 minutes. Once they cool down, slice them in half and toss them on 1/4 cup of olive oil, sea salt, cracked black pepper, rosemary & thyme.

Spread the potatoes out on the baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes on 400°.

For Honey Lemon Salmon:

Pat the moisture from the salmon, then drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, pepper, and chopped garlic. Place the salmon on the sheet pan, and roast for 5 minutes. Then, drizzle the honey lemon mix on top of it and pop back into the oven.

For Broccolini:
The final step!
Toss two bunches of broccolini in olive oil, salting it heavily. Add 1/4 cup of white cooking wine and cracked black pepper. Arrange between the empty spots on the sheet pan and let everything roast for five more minutes.

For extra caramelization/crispiness stick the sheet pan under the broiler for about 30 seconds to one minute.


And there you have it: your next weeknight meal!

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Keep a look out for our next round of cheap eats!

Happy eating! ❤
