Simple sheet pan recipe for lemony and garlicky salmon with roasted veggies.



Sheet Pan Salmon & Veggies

  • 2 salmon filets (45 oz each, skin on)
  • 1/2 lb baby potatoes (halved)
  • 2 garlic cloves (grated)
  • 1 lemon (1/2 quartered, 1/2 sliced)
  • 1/4 cup parsley (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly cracked pepper


  • 2 tbsp feta
  • arugula


  1. Bake the Potatoes. Preheat your oven to 425°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Lay the cut potatoes and lemon quarters on the sheet pan. Drizzle 1 tbsp of the olive oil, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1 tsp of garlic powder on top. Toss it all together to evenly coat the potatoes. Bake for 20 minutes until the potatoes are golden brown and lemons are charred.
  2. Season the Salmon. Pat salmon filets dry with a paper towel. In a bowl big enough for the salmon, add 2 tbsp oil, half of the chopped parsley, grated garlic, paprika, red pepper flakes, 1 tsp kosher salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Mix to combine, then add the salmon, and rub the seasoning all over the filets.
  3. Bake Salmon. When the potatoes have baked for 20 minutes, push them to the side of the pan, and place the salmon filets on the pan, skin side-down. Top each filet with a pat of butter and a lemon slice. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how thick your filets are.
  4. Garnish. Garnish the salmon with the remaining parsley, feta, and arugula. Squeeze the charred lemon on top + enjoy!
