Meal Prep and Sheet Pan Dinners

This past weekend was all about meal prep and creating mix and match meals for the week. I chose simple dishes that took under an hour to prepare.  My favorite is the sheet pan salmon, which required on 15 minutes of prep and 30 minutes to cook.  Clean up was a breeze since I used aluminum foil to cover the pan!

For awhile I used to prep one dish on the weekend and have it last all week for lunch.  I was bored by Friday and often would grab lunch out rather than eat the same thing for the fifth time in a row.  I started creating simple recipes that would allow me to cook multiple meals without taking up an entire weekend in the kitchen.  Sheet pan meals are a staple now.  On the weekend I try to prep two different protein dishes, some vegetables, and two starches.  This gives me versatility during the week to keep my taste buds happy. I will be sharing these recipes as I post them to social media.  Up first- sheet pan salmon!

Recipe: 

  • 1lb wild caught salmon
  • 1 tsp Trader Joe’s® everything but the bagel seasoning
  • 2 cups fingerling potatoes cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • 2 cups brussel sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
  • Olive oil, salt, pepper

Directions: heat oven to 400°F. Wrap a large sheet pan in aluminum foil and spritz with nonstick cooking spray.  Place salmon and veggies on pan, drizzle with olive oil. Top salmon with EBTB seasoning. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste over entire pan. Roast in the oven for approximately 25 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. You can also use whatever seasonings you prefer, such as cumin, paprika, garlic, etc to flavor. The options are endless. Enjoy!
