Sheet Pan Meals
One Protein, Two Veggies
For Crispy Sheet Pan Salmon with Veggies, your entire meal is prepared on one sheet pan in the oven. I typically do one protein and two vegetables.
The first and most important rule? Pick proteins that cook fairly quickly so you don’t end up with burnt vegetables.
For proteins, I would suggest fish, shrimp, chicken, sausage, or tofu. Some vegetables I’d consider are asparagus, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, and potatoes.
Crispy Sheet Pan Salmon with Veggies
For this recipe, I opted for salmon, asparagus, and cherry tomatoes. If you’ve been on my site a while, you’ll see I have an inclination for salmon. It’s rich in healthy fats and tastes amazing. Asparagus is easy to cook and pairs well with salmon. Finally, cherry tomatoes are currently in season and add a pop of color to this dish.
Sheet pan meals are all about convenience and versatility. If you are into meal prep, you can plan out your dinners for the entire week. Get creative with the endless combinations to keep things fun!
Need to clear out the fridge before your produce goes bad? Fill your sheet pan with an array of vegetables. All you need to do is drizzle it with some oil and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Just spread the salmon and veggies evenly on the pan so that everything is cooked thoroughly.
Crispy Sheet Pan Salmon with Veggies are great for picky eaters because they can pick and choose what they want to add to their plate. Just scale down if you’re only cooking for two or one!
Aside from that, sheet pan meals make for an easy clean up!
Preparing the Sauce for the Crispy Sheet Pan Salmon with Veggies
To keep your Crispy Sheet Pan Salmon with Veggies from being too basic, create a sauce mixture to add to your salmon. We want to keep things simple but still excite our taste buds.
This mayonnaise-based sauce includes a mixture of dill for added tanginess, salt, and pepper for taste and Dijon mustard for a hint of spice. The creamy consistency ensures that your salmon doesn’t dry out in the oven.
The sauce is also a great base for the panko crumbs you’ll sprinkle over the salmon. Finally, you have full-flavored salmon with a crunch!
