Servings 2


  • 2, 6 oz salmon filet or approx. 3/4# salmon cut into two pieces
  • 2 cups snap peas
  • 2 bell peppers sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice approx. juice of 1 large lime
  • Optional: brown rice or quinoa


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil.
  • In a small bowl, mix together sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, honey and lime juice to make the sauce.
  • In a medium bowl combine all the veggies, toss with 2 Tbsp oil. Then, toss with 2-3 Tbsp sauce. Spread vegetables evenly onto baking tray.
  • Nestle each piece of salmon onto the tray. Top each piece with 1 Tbsp sauce. Save the remaining sauce to use after cooking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes on the middle rack.
  • Keeping pan on the middle rack, change to broil. Broil for 3-6 minutes or until sauce begins to brown.
  • Remove from oven. Add salmon and veggies to brown rice or quinoa to complete the meal. Top with remaining sauce.


Athletes: This should definitely be in your weekly rotation! Easy - get your omega-3's and you can customize the amount of carbohydrates depending on your training. Grinding out all the miles? Use 2-3 cups of rice. Taking some time off to let an injury heal? Downgrade that amount of rice to whatever feels right. Same goes for feeding a house full of people with different nutrition needs. Everyone can build their own.
Healthy Eating: This is a solid make ahead meal for your weekly meal prep. Double the recipe and have lunches ready for Monday-Thursday. Customize the serving based on your nutrition needs that week.
Kids: The likelihood of kids trying a food seems to be exponentially better when there is a dip involved. Save some sauce for them and encourage them to dip away. We also find they eat their veggies better if we let them use their fingers - call us neanderthals.
Other Thoughts:
  • Using the foil allows for the fastest clean up ever. The sugar in the sauce starts to caramelize which is a mess to scrub off baking sheets, so use the foil.
  • If you want to make this for more than 2 people, you can add another piece of fish. If you want to add more veggies AND fish, I would recommend using two trays or the veggies are too crowded to cook well.
  • Feel free to mix up the vegetables, but remember - they need to be quicker cooking vegetables or they won't get cooked through. (Zucchini, yellow squash, edamame, asparagus, green beans would all work too)
