Sheet Pan Garlic Lemon Salmon
I LOVE salmon. And asparagus.

I also love simple, easy meals that taste decadent and rich, but are incredibly healthy – because I won’t lie, eating well isn’t always easy for me.

If I could, I’d live off fried food, cookie dough, and wine – but as I get older (and fatter), and deal with more and more health issues, we’ve been trying to add a lot more fish and vegetables in our diets.

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE seafood and vegetables – but for being a food blogger, I am also the world’s WORST dinner planner. Sometimes its just all too easy to turn to a quick and not really healthy meal after a long day of work!

 

This meal is so simple, there is no excuse NOT to make it.

 

Plus, it’s a great way to add in a lot of color and flavor into lent, and beyond! This meal is so simple and delicious, it is a big hit for our family.

Even my picky eater will go for this salmon – and it doesn’t give ANY fishy taste or smell (we have some picky noses in our house, too – but this method doesn’t give any fishy smells!).

 

This would also be a perfect dinner party recipe for an effortlessly elegant meal. I hope you love it as much as we do!

  1. If I’m using fillets (3-4oz) because it is hard to find a decent slab of salmon, and I need 2-3 pounds of salmon as opposed to one, would you recommend any adjustments? I’ll need two sheet pans and think the best move is salmon on one, just over center oven, asparagus just below. Thank you!!

    1. I’d just watch the cook on them (if you have an oven light) – when the salmon is a whitish pink, its done! When using filets vs a slab it will cook a lot faster so you just need to watch it a bit more – but in truth, we do the filet version often and it’s just as delicious!
