Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced small
  • ½ red onion, diced small
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts, shaved
  • Chosen Foods Avocado Oil
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • ½ tsp chili flakes
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 6-oz salmon fillets
  • ½ lemon
 
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add sweet potato, red onion, cherry tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, and 1 tablespoon avocado oil. Gently toss the vegetables with ½ teaspoon of salt, fresh ground pepper, chili flakes, and smoked paprika.
  2. Heat a 12” GreenPan on medium heat and add the veggies once the pan is hot. Sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. Once the veggies are cooked through but still al dente, place them in a bowl and cover them.
  3. Rinse and pat dry the salmon fillets. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper.
  4. Place your now empty GreenPan over medium-high heat and add 1 teaspoon of Chosen Foods Avocado Oil. Once the oil's hot, add the salmon fillets to the hot pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on the presentation side (top side) first. Flip the fillets carefully and cook for another 3 minutes.*
  5. Plate your salmon over a bed of pan roasted vegetables. Top each plate with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and enjoy!
*Cooking times may vary with the thickness of the fillets.
