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.
Ring-leading said fish feeding frenzy in 3…2…1….

Absolutely love the last photo. The green pesto on the salmon smacks of great colors. Must go in the oven tonight!
I just love salmon in every way, shape and form. This looks like a truly fantastic way to treat this yummy fish. =)
This was fantastic! So easy and very tasty!
So glad to hear, Laurie! 🙂
This recipe is awesome! I have shared it with numerous family members. Thank you so much. I just love these sheet pan meals for an easy clean up. The ingredients are all fresh and easy to assemble. Great recipe!
This is wonderful! I love garlic, but don’t think of it with salmon and almost left it out. Glad I didn’t! The smell in the house while cooking was divine. I thought there wouldn’t be enough sauce but with the juices as the dinner cooked it was plenty. I brushed the sauce on to begin with, then stirred it a couple of times while cooking. I added green onions to the mix, served it with wild rice and this is my new favorite salmon recipe.
Wonderful! Thanks for the feedback, Carol! 🙂
