This month there’s a special holiday coming up where couples might normally go out to dinner, but in these crazy times I bet most people are celebrating at home! And if you’re making a romantic dinner at home, you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen, right? I think this new recipe for  Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Salmon Sheet Pan Meal would make a great easy dinner for a special occasion.

The inspiration for the flavoring in this dish came from a great recipe from The New York Times. I seasoned the salmon and Brussels Sprouts with the same combination of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and lime juice that Melissa Clark used in this recipe, but I changed the proportions a bit for a less-sweet glaze and added some garlic powder for a slightly different take. And this is a savory delight! Kara and I devoured it when we tested the recipe and I was excited to eat my leftovers the next day.

What if you don’t like Brussels Sprouts?

If roasted Brussels Sprouts aren’t going to be a winner at your house, I think the balsamic-soy-lime-garlic glaze used in this recipe would also taste great on green beans or broccoli. I’d roast the green beans about 12 minutes before you add the salmon and brush on the glaze. Broccoli might take only ten minutes if you like it slightly crisp, or a little longer if you like your broccoli more well-done.
