I'm always up for new ways to cook salmon. In this dish, a sweet sauce gives the fish and green beans some down-home barbecue tang. Even our kids love it. —Aliesha Caldwell, Robersonville, North Carolina


  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Place fillets in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. In a small skillet, melt butter; stir in brown sugar, soy sauce, mustard, oil, pepper and salt. Brush half of the mixture over salmon.
  2. Place green beans in a large bowl; drizzle with remaining brown sugar mixture and toss to coat. Arrange green beans around fillets. Roast until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork and green beans are crisp-tender, 14-16 minutes.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Make cleanup a breeze by lining a sheet pan with foil or using a disposable pan.
  • Craving Asian flavors? Add 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger to the sauce and use sesame oil instead of olive oil.
  • It's wise to buy salmon fillets that are the same thickness so they cook evenly.
