Preheat oven to 400F.
In a small bowl mix Italian seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Cut sweet potato, peppers, and onion into 1/2″ cubes. Place all vegetables on the baking sheet.
Add half the spice mixture, 1/2 tbsp olive oil (reserve remaining oil and spices for the salmon) and mix thoroughly to coat all the vegetables.
Place the vegetables and the salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the grill. Cook the vegetables, turning once or twice, until just tender and grill marks appear, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Cook the salmon, without turning, until it flakes when tested with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.
For a complete meal, you can pair this salmon and veggies with homemade sweet potato gnocchi, cilantro lime rice or quino.
