This sheet pan garlic baked salmon recipe is a total cinch and the stuff dreams of weeknight tray bake recipes are made of. We love everything about it, from the food to the flavours, and I love that the entire meal is ready at the same time - on a single tray!
Not only is this garlic salmon tray bake recipe a balanced meal of protein, carbohydrates and green vegetables, but it is also a vibrant mix of colours that makes you happy just looking at it. There is very little prep involved, and the whole recipe can come together in about 40 minutes - very doable for a weeknight meal.
Salmon is an oily fish with a bold flavour of its own, so the garlic and parsley in this recipe are just enough to complement its natural flavours without overpowering. And, if your family is anything like mine and loves garlic, then you'll understand why this flavour combination also works perfectly for the potatoes!
This garlic baked salmon recipe is healthy, satisfying and also very easy to customise. Not a fan of parsley? Try dill or thyme. Potatoes not your thing? Why not use sweet potato or butternut squash? Can't find tenderstem broccoli or broccolini? Use regular broccoli, green beans or asparagus. Mix and match to suit your preferences.
I squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the salmon and broccolini before serving for a refreshing citrus kick.
