🍲 Ingredients

Salmon – Salmon is a great source of protein with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. It helps support your heart health by helping reduce your cholesterol and blood pressure. Salmon is a staple in our house because it’s so versatile. I always make sure to buy BAP-certified salmon and other seafood.

Advertisements

BAP-certified seafood is an aquaculture, or fish farming, certification program that exists to ensure your seafood is being sourced responsibly. They ensure that it meets four key requirements—environmental, social, food safety, and animal health & welfare throughout the production chain so you can feel confident in what you’re eating.

👩‍🍳 How to Make Sheet Pan Salmon

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Make the lemon garlic sauce: Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, dijon, mustard, dried oregano, pressed garlic cloves and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. To a large sheet pan add halved baby potatoes Drizzle with half of the lemon garlic sauce, toss and then roast for 20 minutes.
  4. Once the potatoes have roasted, add the halved tomatoes to the sheet pan and gently toss. Nestle the salmon filets in between the potatoes and tomatoes on the pan. Divide the rest of the lemon garlic sauce evenly between the filets, drizzling on top of each. Finally, add the lemon slices to the sheet pan, on the salmon filets and nestled into the potatoes and tomatoes.
  5. Place back in the oven for 8-12 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through to your desired temperature.
  6. Serve topped with cubed/crumbled feta, fresh herbs and tzatziki.

🤔 Common Questions

Is a sheet pan and baking tray the same thing?

Absolutely, they are just different terms that can be used interchangebly. The one difference in trays though can be the edges. You’ll want to ensure when making something like this sheet pan salmon that your baking tray has edges so any juices, etc. don’t leak down into your oven.

How do I know when salmon is cooked through?

Your salmon will be done when the consistency is flaky and the color has gone from the brighter pink it is when raw to a lighter pink.
