Peanut Butter Salmon with Butternut Squash, Apples, and Brussels Sprouts

Originally published April 14, 2016

Hey Everyone. These roast veggies are great on their own and made even better when you put salmon on top! I was working on homework and inspiration struck. I’ve had some apples in my refrigerator for weeks now and haven’t been craving them. I was planning on roasting my butternut squash and Brussels sprouts as I always do with coconut oil, maple syrup, and some salt and then realized apples would be an amazing addition! Then I started craving peanut butter and apples and knew I was going to make salmon with the veggies anyway. #Inspiration. A filling and delicious healthy dinner from my busy kitchen to yours. I hope you enjoy!

    Team salmon!

     Now place your salmon fillets on sheets of aluminum foil, enough to make each filet its own little pouch.

  6. Make a pouch for your salmon and bake for 35 minutes with the veggies.
