Orange Glazed Salmon

If you have one sheet pan and 30 minutes (or less) you’ve got time for a perfect week night meal with this recipe.  Dinner could not be any more simple than throwing everything on a sheet pan (wrapped in foil for easy clean up!) and baking for 20-25 minutes.  We eat the rainbow a LOT around here…meaning – we eat LOTS of colorful veggies every week.  And this meal is just THAT!  You can see all of the veggies I added below, but feel free to add your favorites!  The orange glaze I added makes the veggies and salmon taste SO good!  It’s a wonderful spring-time meal in my opinion!

I served this with some organic quinoa, but it would be great with rice or cauli-rice too. Do yourself a favor and make sure your salmon is wild!  You won’t have to worry about GMOs or antibiotics.  🙂
