There’s nothing better than a meal that can come together on one pan. This Maple Mustard Salmon One Pan Meal will be your new favorite easy weeknight dinner. I love the sweet and savory combo of the maple mustard sauce on the salmon which really balances out with the basmati rice (not on the pan, but still works) and roasted veggies.
Maple Mustard Salmon One Pan Meal
I’m always looking for ways to switch up how I cook salmon. Cooking this up for an easy weeknight dinner makes for a nutritious meal that’s packed with protein and healthy fats. This Maple Mustard Salmon One Pan Meal doesn’t get much easier. A sauce that’s made with a couple simple ingredients and gives the salmon so much flavor! All you need is one pan to cook the salmon and broccolini together! Obviously, cook the rice separately but there are a lot of ways to make that simpler too!
If you haven’t already noticed, I love salmon dishes! I think they are super versatile to switch around with different sides and it makes for such a nutritious meal. If you aren’t the biggest fan of salmon or have someone in your family that isn’t then try this one for them! I bet the combination of the sweet and salty of this maple mustard sauce on top will be convincing enough to enjoy salmon. Paired with some roasted broccolini and brown basmati rice for a perfect dinner combination.

What you need for Maple Mustard Salmon:
- 2 pieces of fresh salmon
- Basmati Rice
- Maple syrup
- Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
- Avocado Oil
- Sea salt
- Red Pepper flakes
What if I don’t have Whole Grain Dijon Mustard?
If you don’t have whole grain dijon, you can switch this out for regular dijon mustard. I do love the taste the whole grain mustard gives this though!
Can I do another veggie besides broccolini?
Yes! If you want to use another veggie that’s totally okay! I would suggest using one that won’t take a long time to cook like broccolini. Think asparagus, green beans or pepper mixture.
What’s the best salmon to get for this recipe?
I like using the salmon portions that you can get at most grocery stores. These are the Atlantic Salmon Portions from Whole Foods that I have always enjoyed!
