Healthy BBQ Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner
1 medium green bell pepper
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons of your favorite BBQ rub (preferably salt-free)
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels, thawed if frozen
2 tablespoons crumbled Cotija cheese
1 tablespoon 0-percent plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves, chopped, plus whole leaves, for serving
Two 6-ounce center-cut salmon fillets (preferably wild-caught)
2 teaspoons dijonnaise
Lime wedges, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the bottom and stem ends off the pepper and cut the ends into corn kernel-size pieces. Remove the seeds and cut the pepper into 4 rings.
- Scatter the tomatoes down the center of a baking sheet and arrange the pepper rings next to the tomatoes on whichever side you’d like. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of the oil over the tomatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and about half of the BBQ rub. Toss together the corn, pepper pieces, cheese, yogurt, cilantro, a large pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper in a bowl. Fill the pepper rings with the corn mixture. Bake the vegetables until slightly browned, about 20 minutes.
- While the vegetables are in the oven, brush each salmon fillet with dijonnaise and sprinkle with the remaining BBQ rub, some salt and a few grinds of pepper.
- Once the vegetables are browned, remove the baking sheet from the oven and drizzle the empty side with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Add the fillets, return to the oven and cook until the sides of the salmon feel firm when gently squeezed and the flesh is just slightly flaky, 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves and serve with lime wedges.
