This Sheet Pan Herb Butter Salmon recipe is is the ultimate summer meal! It utilizes fresh veggies like cherry tomatoes and green beans and cooks quickly under the broiler. The herb butter makes the salmon really special and gives this dish a bright finish. This sheet pan fish dish is a light and quick weeknight dinner you can get on the dinner from start to finish in roughly 30 minutes with minimal clean up! It’s gluten-free, low-carb and paleo friendly.

Sheet pan dinners are the best because they minimize clean up by utilizing one cooking vessel and they make cooking hands-off. This sheet pan dinner is low carb for a nice light meal that is still going to leave you satisfied. It is packed with flavor and loaded with fresh, in-season vegetables. 

herb compound butter in a bowlHow to Make Herb Butter

An herb butter is a compound butter! A Compound butter is simply a mixture of softened butter and flavorful components like herbs and spices. For this salmon recipe we combine butter with a bunch of fresh herbs. We love using grass-fed butter like Kerrygold or Vital Farms, but really any butter you use will have an improved taste with the addition of herbs!

To make herb butter simply combine softened butter with the prepared herbs. You can make it up to 2 days ahead, if kept in the refrigerator.

Tips for Sheet Pan Cooking:

  • Read the recipe all the way through (of course) and plan to use a timer! Most recipes require different cooking times, so make sure to use a timer so you can truly walk away from the oven and not have to worry about when your adding anything in to the oven.
  • Do the prep ahead of time to make for a quick meal: Clean the vegetables and make the herb butter the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking.
  • Use parchment paper to make clean up a breeze.
  • Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you do not want to overcrowd the pan when cooking, so if you are using a smaller sheet pan you may need to use 2 to achieve the same result.

    Happy Friday, gorgeous!

    Today for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, I want to walk you through an easy, nutrient-dense, delicious, and filling weeknight meal.

    This encrusted salmon is just SO good and satisfying. Plus, it comes together quickly, perfect for those busy weeknights.

    HORSERADISH SALMON

    I’m really into this dinner, you guys! I can’t stop making it.

    Horseradish

    Once you make your homemade horseradish (you might cry a little as you open your food processor), you simply add the remaining ingredients, slather your salmon, and cook.

    So. Delicious.

    HORSERADISH SALMON

    Ready to devour.

    Surprisingly, when you cook the horseradish, it makes this amazing crust and isn’t a super strong horseradish-y taste. Just a whole ‘lotta goodness!

    Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

    Since we moved into our home in June, and now have a porch with a nice grill on it, you can bet I’ll be out there grilling as long as I can. I’ll likely get a heat lamp to extend the season, that’s for sure. I love all burgers, but especially Salmon burgers. They are packed with nutrients, and you can customize the flavors in totally different ways. Since my trip to the Muir Glen Farms I am even more into tomatoes then before, and these burgers give just a touch of that delicious flavor.

    Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

    These burgers have just the right amount of flavor. They are bursting with scallions, jalapeños, and fresh garlic- and go fantastic with some homemade guacamole and fixins’, if you ask me!

    Sticky Asian Glazed Salmon

    I can’t believe May is about to be over! What a fun month I’ve had with Healthy Food Friday and American Express exploring foods inspired by travel. Let’s recap. We had… Tomatoes and my Hearty Bolognese, Hot Peppers and my How To: Roasted Red Peppers, Coconut and my Coconut Shrimp with Orange Chia Marmalade, Turmeric and a Super Smoothie, and now GINGER and a delicious way to prepare salmon. A lot of recipes and inspired foods from other places around the world. I. love. it!

    I love ginger prepared with foods (especially salad dressing) but I also love it when I need to sooth my stomach or when I need an immune boost! I’ll throw it in some tea or even my morning smoothie for that extra boost when I’m feeling like I need it.

    The Health Benefits of Ginger

    Ginger on salmon = perfection. I love the flavors in this dish. Pair it with some roasted or sautéed veggies for a perfect, simple dinner!

      So. Good.
