Simple Broiled Salmon with Jerusalem Artichokes
Wondering what to do with the pound of funny-looking Jerusalem artichokes received from your CSA box? Running out of green veggies in the house? This easy sheet pan dinner will let you enjoy the ingredients you have without sweating about another meal stuck cooking at home!!
Sheet pan dinners are great weeknight meal ideas. You only have 1 pan to wash (yay!), all the juices and flavors are contained and fused together so nicely in the oven! The ideas can go wild! From broiled salmon, to chicken thigh, flank steak… you name it!
It might be deceiving at times that a stunning sheet pan roast seemed to be everything going into the oven together and done at the same time. This might be true for some ingredients but I found that it is always one thing takes longer than the other. Therefore test and adjust cook time for each ingredient. Don’t forget the size of food matters too!
I love to use my compact @cuisinart (Affiliate link) steam oven instead of the huge oven range for weeknight cooking. It takes MUCH less time to preheat, convenient steam-bake options and save so much energy for each use!
Why are the broiled salmon placed over the root vegetables?
Due to its compact cooking space, I usually stack up food to be cooked. Sounds weird but who wouldn’t love root veggies infused with delicious salmon fat?
Of course, remember to place the salmon on top so it will get a nice crispy skin on top as broiled salmon do!
