One tray bakes make the perfect mid-week meal. They’re low effort, quick, and just like one-pot meals, the one tray means that clean up is a breeze — always a welcome thing in our house!

This easy low-carb bake comes together from start to finish in under 20 minutes. You can serve it with healthy mayonnaise and optionally mix in more seeded mustard.

You could also serve with some plain mayo or aioli, or simply with a squeeze of the lemon, which after being baked will have become extra juicy and have sweetened. You can even swap the broccolini for broccoli, cauliflower or asparagus. If you use cauliflower, remember to slice the florets and bake them for 10 to 15 minutes before adding the salmon.
