In One Pan & Done, Chef Molly Gilbert shows you how to use your oven to your advantage, letting it do most of the work to turn out juicy, crispy roasts, succulent vegetables, rich stews, flaky fish, and, of course, sweet treats. Think of it as fast slow-cooking, but with the benefits of baking, roasting, and broiling for concentrated, intense flavor every time.

Whether you’re an over-scheduled parent just trying to get something nutritious on the table or an accomplished cook, you deserve food that’s big on flavor, but simple on steps. With Molly Gilbert’s recipes, you get in the kitchen, and you get out.

Chef Molly Gilbert says: “This quick salad is a wonderful mix of texture, temperature, and flavor. The shrimp, chickpeas, and red onion roast together on a sheet pan with a quickly made lemony vinaigrette, getting plump and juicy and warm. Then we stir in some crisp celery and fresh dill to add coolness and crunch. It’s an unexpectedly fun and healthy treat, whether dished up for dinner or boxed up and toted to school or work as a ‘not sad desk lunch.’” Serve with a few slices of crusty baguette.

Serves 2-4.
