Yield 4

Easy, quick, incredibly delicious, and made in just one pan, Sheet Pan Ginger-Orange Salmon Bowls are just the thing for dinner tonight! Gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, grain-free, paleo, and Whole30 friendly

Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • cup coconut aminos*
  • cup freshly squeezed orange juice from about 1 large orange
  • 1 teaspoon minced or finely grated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

For the Bowls

  • 1 pound salmon wild caught if possible
  • 1 pound fresh green beans ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Optional bowl add-ins: thinly sliced cucumbers thinly sliced red cabbage, fresh cilantro, pickled ginger, black or white sesame seeds, nori sheets

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 400F.
  • Make the sauce by whisking the coconut aminos, orange juice, garlic, ginger, oil and salt in a medium bowl until well combined.
  • Pour ⅓ cup sauce into a shallow dish. Add the salmon, flesh-side down. Allow to marinate for 20-30 minutes.**
  • Place the green beans on a foil or silicone lined rimmed sheet pan. Pour over 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with ⅓ teaspoon salt, tossing to combine.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade. Add the salmon to the sheet pan, nestling between the green beans. Pour the remaining marinade over the salmon.
  • Roast for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon, until just cooked through, when the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • Remove from the oven, dividing the salmon and green beans between 4 bowls. Add any additional add-ins you like, and serve with the remaining sauce.

Notes

*Find coconut aminos near the soy sauce in most grocery stores. If you don’t have or don’t want to use coconut aminos you can substitute low-sodium gluten-free tamari. Reduce the salt to ¼ teaspoon if you’re making this substitution.
**If you're short on time, you can skip this step and just pour the sauce directly on the salmon before roasting.
I added orange slices to the sheet pan for the photo, mainly because it looks pretty. It's not necessary, but you can add 4-6 thinly sliced orange pieces along with the salmon and green beans prior to cooking.
No green beans? Swap in broccoli or cauliflower florets instead.
Cook up a cup of white or brown rice to go alongside.
