Herb Crusted Salmon Sheet Pan Meal

I grew up with a family that loved to hunt and fish and camp.  I have really fond memories of fishing with my dad and then cooking up our catch for dinner.  Some have an aversion to sea food, but I kind of adore it – especially salmon.  It is packed with healthy omegas and leaves you satisfied without feeling like you ate a brick.

Salmon with a Kick

I’ve been making this recipe every since I was a newlywed.  It’s fast and tasty, which is kind of my motto. The combination of the flaky salmon, and the seasoned, flavorful crust are a perfect harmony in my mouth. I took this recipe a step further recently and cooked the entire meal on the same sheet pan. I loved the easy clean up and that dinner was done in one cooking step. We are posting all week ideas for dinner that you can whip up on your sheet pan.  Did you see Desi’s Sausage + Veggie meal?  It’s one of my favs!

For the crust, start with some fresh herbs.  If you don’t have any handy – dried will work, but cut the amount in half.  I like to use dill, rosemary, thyme, and dried sage.  Combine herbs with about 1/2 cup of seasoned bread crumbs and top your salmon fillets. Spray the tops with a little non stick spray and add your potatoes and asparagus to the pan.

You’ll end up with a perfectly-cooked salmon filet with a kick of flavor in the crust, perfect sliced potatoes, and tender asparagus in about 25 minutes.

Not Yo Momma’s Sheet Pan

These crow canyon home sheet pans have been my favorite thing lately.  There is something about using beautiful kitchen items that makes me happy. Almost as happy as a meal that requires only one pan to wash when it is all said and done.
