Salmon – This versatile fish can be roasted, pan seared, grilled, or smoked and it is so full of flavor! You’ll need 4 filets, and you can use any variety of salmon that you like, just make sure it is good and fresh!
Baby Red Potatoes – These small red potatoes are perfect for roasting! You’ll quarter the potatoes and season them before roasting in the oven.
Potato Seasoning – To season the potatoes you’ll use a mix of olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt.
Green Beans – You will need fresh, trimmed green beans. I’ve not tried this with frozen green beans, but I bet they’d turn out fine.
Garlic Butter Sauce – You’ll prepare a simple sauce to drizzle over both the salmon and green beans. This mixture is melted butter, minced garlic, parsley, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Lemon – You’ll need four slices of lemon, one to place over each of the salmon filets before baking. The lemon juice will add even more flavor and it pairs perfectly with salmon or just about any fish.
What We Love About This Recipe:
- You can easily customize this recipe and use different vegetables if you want to mix things up. Anything green will go well with salmon, like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, or asparagus.
- This is an easy sheet pan recipe that makes a complete meal all on one pan! It’s a simple way to get dinner on the table.
- Use any variety of potato you like. We think red potatoes roast nicely, but it’s hard to go wrong with potatoes.
How To Bake Salmon and Vegetables:
Potatoes: While your oven preheats to 400 degrees you can get started by preparing a large rimmed half sheet with some non-stick spray. Next, cut the red potatoes into quarters and place them into a mixing bowl. Drizzle the oil over the potatoes and then sprinkle on the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt. Toss all that until the potatoes are well coated in the seasoning mix. Roast these for 15 minutes before adding the salmon and green beans to the pan.
The green beans in this recipe should be tender crisp after about 15 minutes in the oven. If you want them even more tender you can add them in with the potatoes so they can roast for longer.
Garlic Butter Sauce: In a small bowl add melted butter, minced garlic, parsley, onion powder, salt and pepper. Stir until combined.
Salmon & Green Beans: Arrange the salmon filets down the center of the pan with the green beans along the other edge of the pan. If the filets still have the skin, place them skin side down. Drizzle the garlic butter over the salmon and green beans and top the salmon with lemon slices.
Roast: Return the pan to the oven and continue roasting for 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and the potatoes and green beans are tender. That’s all you need for this complete one-pan meal! Serve it hot.
Sheet Pan Salmon Tips & Tricks:
- Potatoes: The potatoes will take a bit more time in the oven than the salmon and green beans. Be sure to roast them for 15 minutes before adding the other ingredients to the pan.
- Green Beans: We like our beans to be tender-crisp. If you’d like them softer, go ahead and add them to the pan with the potatoes.
- Easy Clean Up: Line the sheet pan with parchment paper or foil for easy clean up!
- Fresh Salmon: You can certainly use frozen and thawed salmon and we often do, but for the best flavor and texture use fresh salmon.
- Cut the Carbs: Swap the potatoes for cauliflower to cut down on the carbs in this sheet pan meal.
It’ll take about 15 minutes for the salmon to bake, depending on the size/thickness of the filets that you are using.
Yes, you can, and it’s very nutritious. That said, many people don’t like the skin and it’s easily removed while eating.
It can last up to 3 to 4 days depending on how fresh it was when you bought it. The roasted potatoes and green beans will last at least as long as the salmon. Store it in an airtight container.
