Baked Salmon & Veggies Fast Easy Gluten-Free Dinner

This baked salmon with vegetables will be the simplest meal you ever prepared. You will not believe cooking this well was this easy.

I get on different types of cooking trips where I do the same thing every night for a few months because it is so easy and good tasting. In this case, the method is baking.

What I used to make this dish is a long glass dish pan, about 8 x 13 inches, the kind you would use for lasagna.

Heat the oven to 375 Bake.

Put a thin layer of olive oil in the dish pan first. Then simply lay your ingredients of choice on it. Here, I rinse off 2 frozen pieces of fresh wild caught salmon and place them in the center. You may use any type of fresh or frozen fish or chicken.

Around the fish I place washed vegetables. You may use any fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables that you want. I have organic cauliflower and organic green beans from my Farm Fresh box home delivery. On top of that, I lay some baby bok choy from Trader Joe’s. And for the final veggie layer, I place one sliced sweet red tomato from my garden.

After you have your protein and veggies in the pan, then you do your seasoning. You may add butter or olive oil; I add both. I sprinkle salt all over, lemon pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese.

Cover the dish with tin foil and put on the middle-top rack of the oven. Cook for 30 minutes. Let the oven do the cookin’ while you enjoy some television or tend to other matters.

Take the tin foil off. Put it back in the oven for 5 minutes more on Broil 375 or until top of food has a nice lightly brown baked top. Be careful not to burn your masterpiece after all that; stay near.

That’s it. Looks great. Tastes great. Is gluten-free!

This meal is can be dairy-free if you cut out the butter or vegan if you cut out the protein.

This example is for a two person serving size dinner.
