Harissa, a North African pepper sauce, is a great way to easily add flavor to all kinds of foods. In this sheet pan recipe, the spice of harissa pairs nicely with bright orange zest to make a perfect topping for salmon and vegetables.

Harissa Orange Salmon with Broccolini

Eating fatty wild caught fish like salmon twice a week is a good way to get more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Sheet pan meals are one way to get this goodforyou superfood on the table with minimal effort.

You can try harissa on grilled meats or vegetables. My personal favorite is to spread harissa on a piece of avocado toast!

This sheet pan harissa orange salmon dinner goes from your pellet smoker to outdoor table fast, allowing you to take advantage of summer dining at its best.
