I can’t imagine a world without salmon. It has been one of my favorite seafood for as long as I can remember. Not only is it flavorful and nutritious, but it also doesn’t take long to prepare. With the many ways it can be cooked, salmon is a must-have for us at least once a week. There are so many recipes I have whipped up using an assortment of seasonings and sauces from Trader Joe’s. Today, I will be using their Everything But Bagel seasoning to cook an absolutely scrumptious Trader Joe’s Salmon recipe.
So, let’s get started!
Trader Joe’s Salmon with Roasted Veggies

- 2-3 tsp Trader Joe's Everything But Bagel Seasoning
For the veggies
- 12 oz broccoli sprouts
- Cooking oil, as needed
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 24 oz red potatoes, quartered
- 1 tbsp melted butter, or ghee or any other fat
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp crushed rosemary
- 1/4 tsp onion powder

This Trader Joe’s salmon recipe has been my favorite for multiple reasons. It’s extremely healthy, with proteins and a side of veggies. This makes it the perfect low-carb meal. It also has fewer calories with the perfect amount of fatty acids to give energy and provide the necessary nutrients. It barely takes 30 minutes and a few ingredients, making it the best recipe to whip up when I am too exhausted to cook but also want a healthy meal.
The dish serves as a filling dinner on its own. However, if you wish to feast, you can pair it up with so many yummy food options. Here are some of the side dishes I would love to have with the Trader Joe’s Salmon and roasted veggies.
Start with the broccoli and spinach soup, followed by lettuce wraps, BBQ chicken wings, and salmon and roasted veggies. For dessert, choose to spoil yourself with our mouth-watering peanut butter pizookie.
Or you can opt for two main courses of salmon. Along with salmon and roasted veggies, choose one of the following: salmon curry, Irish salmon, or salmon with Asian walnut slaw. If you want something more filling on the side, add hummus or brown rice for a well-balanced diet.
Why Should You Try the Salmon and Roasted Veggies?
Salmon is a fish rich in proteins and fatty acids. Its nutritional content makes it one of the best options for weight-watchers, especially those who are looking to opt for low-carb diets. The fatty acids are good for skin and hair, providing the essential nutrients needed for the upkeep of skin and energy levels when on a calorie-restricted diet.
The vegetables add the recommended vitamins and minerals into your diet with a rich source of iron. The carbohydrates in potatoes fill you up with the energy required to go about your day while being healthy as they are not loaded with extra oil.
Health Benefits of Salmon
Salmon, nowadays, is one of the most popular fish consumed in the United States. It’s full of nutrients offering several health benefits for avid consumers.
- They are rich in Omega-3 acids. These fatty acids are necessary for the body. They help reduce the chances of arterial distress in smokers and people suffering from obesity. Doctors recommend eating Omega-3 rich foods rather than taking them as supplements.
- The fatty acids also improve brain health. They keep depression and depressive symptoms at bay. They are also considered to have positive effects on fetal brain development.
- It is protein-rich, helping to build and repair muscles after injury and also preserving muscle mass when losing weight.
- They are also a rich source of Vitamin B, the deficiency of which is pretty common in some countries. These vitamins help control inflammation, improve skin and eyesight. Two servings of salmon a week can prevent a vitamin B deficiency and help keep diseases at bay.
With all these benefits, you should be more than tempted now to try this super food. So, it is time to whip up this recipe and enjoy it!
