  1. 1

    Start Vegetables and Make Apricot Sauce

    In a mixing bowl, combine apricot preserves, ketchup, and 1 tsp. water. Set aside.

    Trim green beans, if necessary.

    In one provided tray, combine green beans, 1 tsp. olive oil, and 2 Tbsp. water. Cover tray with foil.

    Add mashed potatoes to second provided tray and stir vigorously to combine.

    Bake both trays (green beans covered, potatoes uncovered) in hot oven until green beans begin to soften and potatoes are warmed through, 15-17 minutes.

    While vegetables bake, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Add the Salmon

    Pat salmon dry and season flesh side with 1/4 tsp. salt and half the garlic pepper (reserve remaining for green beans).

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add salmon, skin-side up, to hot pan. Sear on one side until golden-brown, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    After 15-17 minutes, carefully remove both trays from oven. Uncover green beans and stir in remaining garlic pepper and a pinch of salt. Push to one side of tray. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Transfer salmon, skin-side down, to now-empty side of green beans tray. Top salmon with apricot sauce.

    Add butter, cheese, and a pinch of salt to mashed potatoes tray. Stir vigorously to combine.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake both trays uncovered in hot oven until green beans are tender and salmon is firm and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes.

    While meal bakes, mince chives.

    Carefully remove both trays from oven. Stir mashed potatoes vigorously to combine.

    To serve, top mashed potatoes with chives. Bon appétit!
