  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Toss carrots with half of the aminos-butter and spread out onto a sheet pan. Cover tightly with foil and roast for 10 minutes on bottom rack. 

  3. Place salmon on a second sheet pan. Spread remaining half of aminos-butter over salmon.

  4. Remove foil from carrots and bake them for another 15 to 20 more minutes, until golden brown. Bake salmon at the same time on the top rack. Depending on thickness of the salmon, it should take anywhere between 12 to 18 minutes. 

  5. Finish carrots with lemon juice and serve salmon with lemon wedges and chopped green onions. Serve with warmed cauliflower ‘couscous.’ (Remember to save half the cauliflower if doubled for Wednesday's dinner.) Enjoy!
