Smoked paprika

1½ tsp(s), smoked, sweet variety

Extra virgin olive oil

4 tsp(s)

Ground coriander

1 tsp(s)

Ground cumin

1 tsp(s)

Kosher salt

1 tsp(s)

Black pepper

¾ tsp(s), freshly ground

Uncooked zucchini

2 medium, cut into 1-in chunks

Sweet red pepper(s)

1 medium, chopped

Canned chickpeas

15½ oz, rinsed, patted dry

Plain fat free Greek yogurt

4 tbsp(s)

Uncooked red onion(s)

1 medium, thinly sliced

Uncooked farmed salmon fillet(s) with or without skin

1 pound(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine paprika, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl; mix well to combine and set aside
  3. Combine zucchini, red pepper, onion and chickpeas on a large sheet pan (12- X 16-in); add 1 Tbsp oil and 4 tsp spice mixture. Toss well to coat evenly and then spread in a single layer; bake 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, coat salmon with remaining tsp oil and remaining spice mixture; set aside.
  5. Remove sheet pan from oven; toss vegetables with a spatula. Clear 4 spaces so the salmon can sit right on pan; nestle salmon in spaces. Return to oven; bake for another 10 minutes, or until salmon is cooked to your liking.
  6. To serve, dollop 1 Tbsp yogurt over each file; sprinkle with shredded mint. Garnish with additional mint springs, if desired; serve immediately with lemon wedges.
