I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to bring my garlic-Dijon sauce to this blog, but hey, better late than never!
This is going to make my weekly dinner rotation: it’s nutritious, tasty, filling, and comes together quickly.
The only difficult part of this recipe is finding a broccoli stalk large enough to spiralize (aim for at least 1″ in diameter, but 1.5-2″ is much better). The Inspiralizer is the best, because there’s the least amount of waste, so you can spiralize even the smallest of veggies (like a broccoli stem.) #shamelessplug
Broccoli noodles are my mother’s favorite, actually! She usually tosses hers in a skillet with a little olive oil, but I just recently started roasting them, and I love how much of their natural flavors come out. Plus, I LOVE sheet pan suppers, so this recipe has it all.
The broccoli is packed with calcium, the salmon has those much-needed omega-3 fatty acids (just make it wild salmon!), and the sauce pairs perfectly well with everything – it kind of looks like a brown glug, but that’s just because my photography skills aren’t the best – don’t be deterred!
If you don’t want to make your own sauce, a nice teriyaki glaze or even some pesto would work nicely here. Whatever you have on hand – just make sure to do the spiralized broccoli stem + broccoli florets + salmon combo, it’s so easy and healthy!
If you can’t find broccoli stems large enough to spiralize, toss the broccoli florets with potato noodles – it’ll give the dish a nice savoriness and add a filling starch. Or, parsnips would be lovely too!

Serves 2 servings
Baked Lemon Salmon with Spiralized Broccoli and Dijon Sauce
10 minPrep Time
20 minCook Time
30 minTotal Time
For the salmon:
2 3oz skinless salmon portions
olive oil to brush
salt and pepper
2 lemon wedges
For the broccoli:
2 large broccoli stems, Blade D, noodles trimmed
1.5 cups broccoli florets, chopped small
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
pinch red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
For the sauce:
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 garlic clove minced
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup vegetable broth, low sodium
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 425. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the two salmon portions on the sheet and lightly brush with olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper and squeeze one lemon wedge per portion.
In a medium mixing bowl, toss the broccoli florets and broccoli noodles, garlic powder, olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Spread the broccoli mixture out on the other baking sheet. Bake the broccoli and salmon for 14-18 minutes, depending on how thick the salmon is and how done you want it (I usually cook mine for 17 minutes if it’s a medium thickness.)
While salmom and broccoli cooks, prepare the dijon sauce: add the oil to a small saucepot and once oil is shimmering, add the shallots and garlic and cook for 1 minute until shallots turn translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients for the Dijon sauce into the saucepot and whisk together to combine. Place the pot over medium-high heat, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until thickened, about 7 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.
Serve the salmon pieces with the broccoli mixture and pour over with Dijon sauce.

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?
