Balsamic glaze on salmon is a game changer recipe. This classy recipe, pairs nicely with white wine and roasted veggies.
Balsamic salmon with roasted asparagus and sweet potato is simple and you can use the balsamic dressings with honey on salads, veggies or even chicken throughout the week. I’m all about ways to save money on groceries. Recipe ingredients with multiple uses are always a win, if you ask me. Speaking of salad dressings, really any of them work as salmon marinades when baking or grilling! Get creative! Wrapping salmon in foil is an easy way of cooking fish.
Tip: Try not to go overboard with high calorie sauces and remember to always read the label if you’re not making a homemade balsamic glaze or dressing. Honey is an added sugar so it’s important to use in moderation.
Also, I am obsessed with the Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning on roasted vegetables. Everything but the Bagel asparagus, Everything but the Bagel broccoli, Everything but the Bagel green beans, you name it. It’s a staple vegetable seasoning to have on hand and to use with any sheet pan vegetable recipe. Balsamic salmon with roasted asparagus is a keeper on the weeknight menu.
Salmon: All types of salmon provide a good source of high quality protein and the heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. The fat and omega-3 content varies from one species to another. Classified as an oily fish, salmon is also high in protein and vitamin D!
Sweet Potato: Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin C and potassium. They are also a decent source of many other vitamins and minerals. Potatoes are mainly a complex carb source.
Asparagus: Asparagus is a low-calorie vegetable that is an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, especially folate and vitamins A, C and K.
