Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe

This salmon sheet pan dinner couldn't get any easier. Potatoes and green beans round out the delicious fare.

Square meals.

You hate them.

There’s a protein to tend to. And cooking meat and fish tends to freak you out as-is. There’s a starch you need to babysit (and still ends up as mush most of the time).

And then you don’t even have a vegetable side yet, let alone a sauce or a side salad or anything you see in the perfectly arranged “easy dinner” meal shots on social media or in magazines.

Or through your window on your neighbor’s dining table, if you happen to have the kind of neighbor you swear is just Martha in disguise.

So you start asking yourself - is this what people in real life actually eat? Is there a single mother on this planet who actually goes through the trouble of growing a seventh arm just so she can serve steak with mashed potatoes, carrots and peas?

I’ve talked about the problem of feeling like a failure in the kitchen before. And hopefully you stopped giving yourself a hard time and started looking for the right solutions.

But knowing the level of your cooking skills and proper time management isn’t all it takes. Because you actually do want to put good food on the table that makes your family smile (and you feel like supermom).

What if you told you that, even as a busy mom, you don’t have to resort to all the casseroles, all the time? And that there’s a way to put a square meal on the table without breaking a sweat?

I mean, nothing against casseroles. But sometimes you just want three clear sections on your plate.

Or for once not spend dinnertime fighting with a toddler because you cut up the potatoes just a little too small for her liking before you added them to your latest one pot solution.

Yes, this happened.

So, what is a smart woman like yourself to do?

Make that square meal in the oven, of course.

This recipe will show you how easy it is to pull off a simple salmon, potato and green bean dinner. And if you’re not feeling like fish, you can always use the same principle and make yourself an equally easy (and delicious!) Greek chicken dinner.

No matter which recipe you choose, they will invite your family to cheer your amazing cooking skills and offer to do the dishes while you put your feet up.

A girl can dream, right?!

Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner Recipe

    4 Servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds Baby Potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 pound Fresh Green Beans, washed and trimmed
For the Salmon:
  • 50 grams Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • 50 grams Breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herb Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Salmon Fillets


  1. This is optional, but to help with clean-up you can line a large sheet pan with aluminium foil. If you don’t, you’ll just have to scrub the pan a little more.
  2. Preheat your oven to 430°F (or 390°F if you’re using a convection oven).
  3. Place the potatoes on your sheet pan and toss them with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from the oven and add the green beans, tossing them with an additional 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
  5. While the vegetables are baking, whip the butter in a small bowl using a fork. Stir in the breadcrumbs, minced garlic, herb mix and salt. Spread this evenly over the four salmon fillets.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven once more and make room for the fish. Add the four salmon fillets and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the fish is cooked and flaky all the way through.
