Pan-Seared Salmon with Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

The H-burn is a real program that I use in my clinics with my clients to unleash their metabolic potential.  Your energy will soar and you will feel rested, alert, and alive. In 10 days, many of my clients lose up to 10 pounds!

With the H-Burn, you will attack stubborn hormone-induced fat, stabilize your hormonal balance, and soothe your mood while you smooth your new and unwelcome bulges. You will bust through your most stubborn weight loss plateaus and watch the number on the scale start plummeting downward.

Fatty fish, like salmon, helps promote healthy hormone balance in your thyroid and adrenal glands. And other nutrients in healthy fats slow gastric emptying — they help you feel full longer, stimulating the hypothalamus and pituitary glands in the brain to release feel-good hormones, allowing your body to feel full and satisfied.

Let’s begin to melt the fat away! Enjoy this Pan-Seared Salmon with Balsamic Roasted Vegetables recipe.

H-Burn Dinner | Serves 2
Prep time: 20 minutes  |  Total time: 30 minutes


2 small yellow squash, sliced 1/2-inch thick
2 cups quartered fresh mushrooms (button, crimini, or shiitake), about 4 ounces
1 small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Sea salt and black pepper
2 6-ounce salmon fillets
3 cups baby spinach leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Toss the squash, mushrooms, and onions with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and the vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Lay on a sheet pan in a single layer and roast until tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.

  3. While the vegetables are cooking, remove the salmon from the fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat (cast iron works best), and let it sit for about 5 minutes until very hot. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the salmon to the pan.

  5. Cook the salmon until it lifts easily with a spatula and is well browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and finish cooking on the other side, about 1 minute, until the salmon is nearly opaque in the center. Immediately remove the salmon to a plate.

  6. When the vegetables are finished cooking, remove the pan from the oven and immediately add the spinach to the hot pan. Stir with a spatula until the vegetables are tossed and the spinach is wilted.

  7. Serve the salmon on top of the vegetables. Enjoy this delicious H-Burn recipe on Phase 3.
