An oven-baked salmon that’s flavored with everything bagel seasoning. It’s crazy easy —just place salmon and veggies on a pan! Weeknight dinner done in 20.
We love seafood recipes because they're always healthy and take less than 30 minutes to make. Seafood typically cooks quickly, which makes it a great weeknight dinner. This meal packs massive flavors into the salmon and roasts it all on one pan with fresh veggies.
- Broccoli: this fresh veggies cooks relatively quickly and pairs well with salmon. Keep reading for a few options if you don't want broccoli!
- Honey: the sticky and sweet honey adds flavor and helps the everything but the bagel seasoning stick to the salmon.
- Dijon mustard: honey, mustard and salmon go so well together. The spice in this cuts the sweetness and adds depth.
- Salmon fillets: we're keeping the skin on for this and coating the flesh side with all the seasoning.
- Everything but the bagel seasoning: we save time by buying this pre-made, but you can make your own too!
What is everything but the bagel seasoning?
This seasoning gained popularity after Trader Joe's released it a couple of years ago. It's great for topping eggs and avocado toast, but it makes a killer seasoning for protein like chicken and this salmon.
You can buy pre-made seasoning here or make homemade everything but the bagel seasoning:
- 1 tablespoon garlic flakes
- 1 tablespoon onion flakes
- 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt
- 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
What salmon to buy
- Look for wild caught salmon first, but a farm raised salmon that is vibrant with no fish smell is great.
- Fresh or frozen? If you live near the coast and have access to fresh salmon, opt for that. It should note that it's "fresh never frozen." Most of the time the fish at the counter was previously frozen and thawed, so if you're planning to freeze again before cooking, just opt for the frozen salmon. It's flash frozen right after it's caught.

Tips for Cooking Salmon

- Try to buy salmon fillets that are all the same size for even cooking
How to Tell When Salmon is Done
You'll know salmon is done just before it reaches 145°F with an internal temperature. Make sure to insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the salmon for the best reading.
Our Cafe 30" Smart Slide-In Gas Double-Oven Range comes with a temperature probe that we can put in the salmon and leave there. It connects to our Cafe app so we can read how hot the center of the fish is while it's cooking!

One-Pan Everything Bagel Salmon and Broccoli
- 32 ounces broccoli florets*
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 4 (4-5 ounce) salmon fillets
- 1/4 cup everything bagel seasoning
- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Add the broccoli florets to a large sheet pan in an even layer and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat then roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

- Place the each salmon skin side down on the open side of the baking sheet and generously brush each with the prepared honey dijon mixture. Sprinkle the salmon with everything but the bagel seasoning so minimal flesh is showing.
- Place the sheet pan back in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until salmon reaches 145°F.
