Active time: 15 min
Total time: 30 min
Serves: 2


Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 8 ounces baby potatoes, halved
  • 1 head broccoli (about 8 ounces), cut into 2-inch florets with stems
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for rubbing
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 portion king salmon (10 to 12 ounces), pin bones removed

Directions

COOK THE POTATOES

Preheat the oven to 425°F with a rack in the center position or preheat an air fryer to 400°F.  Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain well and return the potatoes to the pot. Add the broccoli and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat evenly with oil. 

On a small baking sheet, spread the vegetables into an even layer. Roast until just beginning to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. 

MAKE THE GARLIC BUTTER

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic, and thyme. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

ROAST THE SALMON

Lightly rub the salmon with oil and season with salt and pepper. Using a spatula, move some of the vegetables aside to make room for the salmon. Add the fish, skin side down. Return the baking sheet to the oven. Roast until the fish flakes easily around the edges and registers 125°F on an instant read thermometer, about 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet.

FINISH AND SERVE

Divide the fish between plates. Add the garlic butter to the vegetables and toss until melted and the vegetables are coated evenly. Divide the vegetables between the plates and and serve right away.
