Baked Lemon Salmon with Spiralized Broccoli and Dijon Sauce

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.

Shall we?

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!

Gosh, I love spiralizing!

Baked Lemon Salmon with Spiralized Broccoli and Dijon Sauce

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • For the salmon:
  • 2 3 oz 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
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • 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.

Ali, this dish looks wonderful. Step 4 is a little confusing, though, due to what seem to be a few extraneous words. Surely there's only one sauce pot involved . . . Thanks as always for the recipe!

I just received my spiralizer and don't seem to see anything that labels my blades, once I can identify them I can mark them, help!

I just ran a zucchini in a couple of the blades ..Found my favorite. Then marked it
Hillary Gras says:
The INSPIRALIZER labels its blades, but in her start guide she gives guidance to a spiralizer equivalent blade.

Ali... love the new print format, and the inclusion of the nutritional information...thank you... this recipe looks wonderful... am going to try spiralizing the broccoli stems, looks like fun... I always use my peeled broccoli stems for broccoli slaw... yummy.
Bea says:
I calculated this as 5 Smart points. The only ingredients with points are the salmon, olive oil, mustard and honey. There is no way that this is 11 points.

Sorry not for me, yes the broccoli stem , but the cherred broccoli no, the mustard sauce far to strong sorry have had some good recipes from this site but this one is sadly not going in my colletion, lucky made some little egg muffins ,so had sothing with rhe wine, sorry to moan I can cook very well and think steam broc far better, or stir fry, dont understand the sauce just realy strong.

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
