This super simple salmon sheet pan is an easy weeknight meal to throw together when you’re in a pinch for time. With only 8 ingredients, including spices, you’ll end up with a delicious, flavorful balanced dinner. Bonus points that you’ll only have one sheet pan to wash at the end!
Sheet pan meals are such an easy way to change up your dinner game. They’re easily customizable, and can be made with pretty much any combination of protein, starch and veggie.
I used broccolini and baby potatoes as my sides for this meal, but you can swap them out for your choice of veggies! Green beans, cauliflower, or carrots would all be great options.
The veggies get the perfect char, and the salmon comes out juicy and flakey with so much flavor.
How to prep the perfect sheet pan dinner
This sheet pan salmon comes together in just 3 easy steps.
- Bake the potatoes– the potatoes take longer to cook than the salmon and broccolini do. Once you toss them with the spices, they’ll get a head start in the oven for 20 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients
- Season the broccoli & salmon– while the potatoes bake, you can toss the broccolini with it’s spices, and season the salmon so that it’s ready to be added to the sheet pan
- Bake everything together to finish– Once the potatoes cooked for 20 minutes, make some room on the sheet pan and layer your broccolini and salmon. Place the pan back into the oven for an additional 15 minutes, and finish it off under the broiler to get that perfect char!
The spices on the salmon are 100% customizable. I love the combination of chili powder and lemon juice, but you can season your salmon in so many ways-
Pesto , za’atar, garlic & herb, or honey mustard are all delicious ways to season your salmon.
This dinner is seriously so simple to throw together, and packs in so much flavor. It’s always a winner in our house, and I can’t wait for you guys to try it!
