Salmon is one of my favorite sheet pan dinners. It cooks quickly and goes well with fresh or roasted vegetables.  This salmon recipe is a complete meal, with protein, vegetable, and starch, so you don’t have to think about preparing other side dishes. Once you pop the pan in the oven, you are free to clean up your kitchen or sit down with a glass of wine… whatever makes you happy.

Honey Garlic Sauce for Salmon

Sauce Ingredients (Printable Recipe):

  • Honey
  • Olive oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Dijon mustard
  • Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper

While the oven preheats combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk well. I love honey garlic sauces and if you do too try my honey garlic pork chops and honey garlic chicken breasts.

Sheet Pan Salmon Preparation

Once preheated, place your vegetables tossed with olive oil salt and pepper on a lined baking sheet. Lining the baking sheet with foil or parchment paper is key here so you’re not left scrubbing your pan clean at the end of the night.

Move the vegetables to the sides to make room for the salmon. Place salmon on the baking sheet and spoon on the honey garlic sauce. Bake at 400 degrees. Salmon is fully cooked when baked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit or 63 degrees Celcius.  The salmon should cook in the oven 9-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets. I use an instant-read thermometer to check the internal temperature.

One of my favorite things about this sheet pan salmon and potatoes is that it’s endlessly customizable. You can switch out the veggies based on what’s in season and what you have on hand. Zucchini, bell peppers, asparagus, sweet potatoes, carrots, your personal favorite vegetable… the choice is yours. Try with my roasted broccoli, roasted zucchini or roasted green beans.

If you love baked salmon as much as I do, here is another of my favorite salmon recipes. The glaze is irresistible! You might also enjoy my grilled salmon recipe.

Ingredients

For the Honey Garlic Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Remaining Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ pounds red potatoes scrubbed and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • ¾ pound green beans washed, dried, and trimmed
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 4 6 ounce salmon fillets, skin on
  • green onions thinly sliced, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • Place all of the honey garlic sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Place the potatoes and green beans on the baking sheet and toss with 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper until well coated. Move vegetables to the sides of the pan, to make room for the salmon in the middle.
  • Place the salmon fillets in the middle of the pan. Spoon on about half of the honey garlic sauce and spread it over the tops of the filets.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, drizzle salmon with sauce once more, and bake for 10 more minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Salmon should register 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Serve immediately.

Notes

Be sure to cut the potatoes into very small (1/2-inch) pieces. The potatoes will be somewhat firm after 15 minutes of cooking. If you prefer softer potatoes, give them a head start cooking on the pan and then add the salmon and green beans after the potatoes have cooked for about 10 minutes.
