1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

3. Combine zucchini, red pepper, onion and chickpeas on a large sheet pan (12- X 16-in); add 1 Tbsp oil and 4 tsp spice mix. Toss well to coat evenly and then spread in a single layer; bake 20 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, coat salmon with remaining tsp oil and remaining spice mixture; set aside.
