I love when I can literally make one whole meal at once with no extra work. This Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner has saved us many times and is one of our favorite recipes.

With a mixture of fish and vegetables, you get all the flavors and fun in one. This is a great weeknight or any night meal that the family loves and comes together in no time.

So this has a little bit of a kick to it using some chili flakes, but it really makes this recipe pop and we absolutely love it. But I get it, if you are not a spicy fan, just leave them out!

The flavors of the marinade/dressing really go well with the vegetables and the fish itself. Salmon I find is a great fish that goes great with a lot of different flavors.

We do like to play around in the kitchen a lot when it comes to that, and oh my word. This has been one of our favorites for so long that we haven’t turned back. 

Like I said it is a great meal when you are in a hurry and you want something quick to throw together, and it reduces the number of dishes, which I’m sure we can all agree is a plus.

Some of my other favorite fish/seafood recipes we have on our site include: Salt and Pepper Shrimp, Lobster Rolls and Roasted Shrimp Cocktail.

HOW TO MAKE A SALMON SHEET PAN DINNER:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the lime juice, parsley, olive oil, garlic and all seasonings. Once well combined, add in the honey and continue whisking until honey is fully incorporated.

  4. Add your salmon filets and spoon out the remaining mixture overtop the salmon.

WHAT SIZE SALMON FILETS ARE BEST FOR THIS?

We like to use anything in the range of 5-6 ounces for our filets. You can use frozen, fresh, or even cut them off a larger piece of salmon and weigh them. 

Just make sure that they are roughly the weight of what we ask, otherwise, they may need to cook longer.

WHEN DO I KNOW MY SALMON IS DONE?

Usually, you can tell by using a fork and pressing down on top of the salmon and it should start to flake. 

Otherwise what you can do is use an internal instant-read thermometer in the thickest part and salmon should be done when it reaches between 125-130 degrees F for medium, meaning there will still be a little pink in the center. Feel free to cook this as long or little as you like, this is just the temperature we prefer.

CAN I SERVE THIS OVER ANYTHING?

This absolutely can be served on its own with nothing, but we do like to add some rice to serve our salmon over. This is 100% a personal preference and you do not need to do it.

We feel like it just complements the dish itself, but if you want to keep it more “healthy” you can leave the rice out and just use the salmon and vegetables.

HOW TO STORE:

This can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator where it will last for up to 3-4 days. I do not recommend freezing this recipe. 

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • The salmon should be done between 125-130 degrees F.
  • Make sure the salmon filets are roughly 5 ounces, you can use frozen, or cut from a larger piece of salmon and weigh them.
  • You can use all of the same color peppers if you’d like.
  • We do not recommend freezing this recipe.
  • If you are not a fan of a little spice, you can leave out the red chili flakes.
  • We like to serve this over rice, but this is a personal option and not necessary.
