Roasted in a flavorful lemon garlic Parmesan sauce and lots of little mushrooms and green beans, this baked salmon is a breeze to throw together for a weeknight dinner and is packed with SO many amazing flavors!
And that’s a wrap for sheet pan dinners week, y’all! Just in time for Friday too and it must be a total coincidence that I’ve been saving the best recipe of this dinner series for last.
Honestly the best. Look at that GORGEOUS sheet pan packed with the best stuff.
No, really. The best dinner stuff, guys. Forget all those things you might have thought about fish, because THIS is that one recipe that’s gonna turn you into a total fish/mushroom/green bean enthusiast. Pinky swear.
I already was a newly-deemed enthusiast of all things fish, but this baked salmon only increased that enthusiasm by a whoooooole lot.
Nothing says enthusiasm like a garlicky lemon + Parmesan sauce covering every inch of your sheet pan dinner, let’s be honest.
So honestly, guys. There’s not much to say about this baked salmon because it’s pretty much the simple of the simple, and yet SO simplistically GOOD. It’s not a super-fancy dinner but it doesn’t have to be either because the flavors are spot on and plus it’s healthy too, so BAM. We have a winner in dinner land.
Basically all we’re doing for dinner prep tonight is piling salmon fillets, fresh mushrooms, and fresh green beans onto one sheet pan all nice and pretty.
Then making it even prettier by dousing every inch of the pan in an insanely-flavorful garlic-lemon sauce. Then Parmesan cheese gets a nice hefty dumping on top of everything. <<< Perfect.
A quick little rendezvous to the oven for a quick 20-25 minute roast time…and dinner can officially begin.
And by begin I mean…let the feeding frenzy ensue because that’s basically how dinner is gonna go down.
