Instructions

  1. Step 1 Prepare and roast vegetables

    Preheat oven to 450F. Place cut vegetables in a large zip-top bag; add oil, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Seal bag; turn bag over several times to coat. Spread vegetables evenly onto a large baking sheet. Roast in oven for 15 minutes.

  2. Step 2 Meanwhile, make the mustard-maple mixture and coat salmon

    Whisk olive oil, maple syrup, mustard, poultry seasoning and garlic in a small bowl. If using frozen Alaska salmon, rinse fillets under cold running water to remove any ice glaze. Pat dry with paper towels. Coat salmon with mustard-maple mixture.

  3. Step 3 Add salmon to baking sheet, bake and serve

    Remove baking sheet from oven; turn vegetables over with spatula, then move vegetables closer together, making room to add salmon. Place fillets on sheet; return to oven. Cook additional 15 minutes for frozen salmon or 10-12 minutes for fresh/thawed, just until salmon is opaque throughout. portion one-fourth of the vegetables with a salmon fillet.
