Method & Timing:

The key to successful Sheet Pan Cooking is understanding timing!

What goes on the pan first?  РWhat takes the longest to cook.

1. Yellow Summer squash goes on first.
2. Roast for 10 minutes at 375 degrees (this takes the longest to cook.) Add chickpeas here if you like them Crispy, or at next step.
3. Salmon coated with Dukkah Seasoning is added in the center. Add Tomatoes on the Vine and Mini Pepper to fit on pan.
4. Roast all for 11 -12 minutes for Salmon Cooked “medium” at 145 degrees (internal temperature.) – all veggies will be perfectly cooked.

Serve with my Minted Herb-Yogurt Sauce and Mint Leaves!

Karen’s Lemony Dukkah Seasoning – how it’s made. The typical¬†Dukkah does not include Lemon rind… but I looovin’ the addition. ¬†
Ingredients:
Hazelnuts (blanched, no skin), Sesame Seeds, Dried Lemon Rind, Coriander, Cumin, Fennel and Kashmiri Chili Powder (can use hot paprika.)

What is Dukkah? (pronounced doo-kah)
An Egyptian and Middle Eastern condiment consisting of a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices. It is typically used as a dip (adding olive oil) with bread or fresh vegetables for an hors d’Ňďuvre.

OOH! ~ Pre-made versions of Dukkah can be bought in the spice markets of Cairo, where they are sold in paper cones.
The word is derived from the Arabic¬†for “to pound”,¬† since the mixture of spices and nuts is pounded together after being dry roasted to the perfect texture.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Lemony Dukkah Seasoning* see my recipe
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 3/4 pounds salmon cleaned, dried cut into 4 portions
  • 2 medium yellow summer squash cut into long slices 3/4" x 2"
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas skins rubbed off, if you can
  • 8 miniature colorful peppers rinsed
  • 8 medium tomatoes on the vine rinsed
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt divided
  • 1 recipe Karen's Minted Herb-Yogurt Sauce see recipe below
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallions optional

Instructions

  • Add 1/2 cup Dukkah into a small bowl to fit. Add 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil; mix well to combine. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    Place summer squash on the rimmed sheet pan. Rub I teaspoon of olive oil into each. Season with a modest amount of salt, pepper and Kashmiri chili powder (or hot paprika) - mix in.
    Roast in oven exactly 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. With a spatula, move squash to one side, chickpeas to the other.
    Add salmon to the center of the pan (oil underneath so it does not stick.) Top evenly with the Dukkah seasoning, patting down. Add a sprinkle of raw sesame seeds on top (like I did) for contrasting color.
  • Add chickpeas, peppers and tomatoes to the pan, fitting them in. Drizzle the last 2 teaspoons of olive oil over them - season with salt, pepper and chili powder.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt over all.
    Roast in the oven 11 - 12 minutes. Check salmon with an instant read thermometer after 11 minutes. A "medium" doneness is 145 degrees. Add back to the oven if needed.

To serve:

  • Portion salmon on each plate.
    Add all vegetables and chickpeas. Top salmon with a drizzle of Minted Herb-Yogurt Sauce and garnish with mint leaves. Serve with a lemon wedge if desired.

Notes

*Lemony Dukkah Seasoning - see recipe, (can use your favorite blend too.)
Minted Herb-Yogurt Sauce Recipe:
