Salmon is for sure a fabulous go to when it comes to a lean and nutritional meal, but do we know why? Salmon is a good source of source for omega-3 fatty acids, lean protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, selenium, niacin, phosphorus and vitamin B6 just to name a few. And let’s be perfectly honest, the radish is that weird vegetable cousin that you’re not quite sure about. Packed with vitamin C and other helpful nutrients like folate, fiber and potassium, radishes are actually awesome. Do you know how to prepare them? One of my favorite ways is to roast them!
How to Make Spicy Baked Salmon with Roasted Vegetables
As I mentioned this Spicy Baked Salmon with Roasted Vegetables recipe is super easy. Begin by coating the salmon with Hoisin Sauce. You can make your own or buy it pre-made. Set the salmon aside while the vegetables are prepared. The radishes will need a bit more cooking than the asparagus and onion. Toss the radishes with olive oil, salt and pepper, then spread on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Then add the asparagus and onion and roast for another 10 minutes. Finish up by making room for the Hoisin coated salmon in the center and bake until preferred doneness. So easy!
I hope you enjoy this nutritious and delicious meal as much as our family does! Happy cooking!
