This recipe for Sheet Pan Salmon with Roasted Tomatoes and Spinach was inspired by my blogging friend David over at Cocoa and Lavender.  Last summer he made a beautiful baked salmon dish that included roasted tomatoes, olives and capers.  He called it “a few of his favorite things”—and I had to admit they were a few of mine too!

Just add bakery bread for a complete meal!

So, for all of August, I kept planning to make it, and well, life was not cooperating.  My mother ended up in the hospital/rehab for three weeks, our newly diabetic cat went into ketoacidosis (50% mortality rate, days of kitty hospital, then hand feeding prescription food) and finally my olives went bad.  I didn’t even know that olives went bad 🙁 !

One pan!

And so I decided to wing it and use what I had (plus spinach for a second vegetable).  Cherry tomato season doesn’t last forever.  I even converted it to go on a single sheet pan too, because… well, that kind of life right now.

Ingredients
  1. 1 quart cherry tomatoes
  2. 2-3 Tablespoons of olive oil, divided
  3. Salt to taste
  4. 10 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only, or ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  5. 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  6. 4 6-oz pieces of salmon
  7. 6 ounces fresh spinach
Instructions
  1. Halve cherry tomatoes (see note). Place in a 9 x 13 baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and salt and roast at 400F for about 30 minutes until tomatoes are just starting to shrink and caramelize. If too many juices are released, drain the roasting pan halfway through the cook time.
  2. Remove pan from the oven, push tomatoes to the side, then add salmon. Drizzle fish with olive oil and salt. Sprinkle fresh thyme and dried minced onion over both fish and tomatoes. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until fish is done (will vary with thickness)
  3. When fish is done add fresh spinach to the pan, stirring into the tomatoes and place the pan back in the oven for 1-2 minutes, until spinach is just wilted. Serve with bread or other starch for a complete meal.

    You know, I never think about putting veggies on the roasting pan with my salmon, as it cooks so quickly. But spinach is the perfect veggie to put there. Will definitely be trying this, Inger!
