Roasted Salmon with Brussels Sprouts

I saw Brussels sprouts at the store the other day that looked fabulous! I was tempted to buy them and roast them...but saved the Salmon for something else delish (will post that one another day)...Anywhoo- I know most people out there turn up there noses to Brussels sprouts. I think it's because they've had them boiled...what a blah way to eat veggies-especially Brussels sprouts. However roasted Brussels sprouts are surprisingly tasty and quite delicious. I dare you to give them a try.


1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise

2 tablespoons olive oil

Coarse salt and ground pepper

4 skinless salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss Brussels sprouts with olive oil. Season with 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper. Spread in a single layer. Roast, tossing occasionally, until sprouts are browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Place in center of baking sheet (push sprouts to sides). Roast until salmon is opaque throughout and sprouts are tender, about 10 minutes.

Serves 4

Cooking tip: Make sure that you choose B. Sprouts that are all about the same size so they cook evenly.
