Salmon and Zucchini Sheet Pan Dinner

 


The night I snapped photos of this meal, I happened to have used salmon that was individually packaged in a light marinade.  However, this is something I make often and I normally use plain, unseasoned salmon.  I buy a long cut of it at the membership warehouse and either bake it whole, or sometimes cut it into 4 pieces.  

When I use my regular un-marinated salmon our go-to seasoning is indubitably lemon pepper!  A simple drizzle of olive oil brushed on, with lemon pepper and perhaps a light sprinkle of salt.  When it comes out of the oven, I dot it with real butter and let it melt, resulting in our favorite way to season salmon.  

Typically we like to grill our salmon (same seasoning) but when I want an easy-peasy, quick dinner I make it into a sheet pan dinner.  Surround the salmon with sliced zucchini and yellow squash, also drizzled with olive oil or avocado oil, and sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper and salt, or a little of the lemon pepper as well.

Into the oven at 375 for about 20-25 minutes until the salmon is done and turning golden.  That's it! How easy is this?




Either use marinated salmon or plain that you season yourself. Place on a greased/oiled/or parchment covered pan.  I always use foil for easy clean up.


 Into the oven with you!
