Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner is the best. Not only that you can mix and match vegetables, but it is all year round kind of meal. Don’t you agree?

One of our favorite fish is salmon. We just love salmon made any way possible; smoked, grilled, poached, baked. It is amazing in baked dishes or sandwiches.

What is your favorite fish?

On the other hand, sheet pan dinner is just phenomenal. You can add chicken, sausage, beef, pork or any other fish. Also, it is fantastic to clean your fridge day when you do not have so much food, but it has to be used.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

I have made this dish many times and the best way to not overcook fish was to actually wrap it in foil. If you hate relationship with Alum foil then just use parchment paper.

I cooked it at the same temperature and pulled salmon 10 minutes earlier so it ended up cooking in the foil before serving. It was absolutely divine!

Yes, you can absolutely bake fish on top of your veggies but I found this way tastier.

The whole point of my blog is to inspire you to get back to cooking your own meals, so you can use whatever protein or vegetables you wish to use or whatever is in season.

However, ever since Sitka Salmon Shares announced on their website that we are going to have Salmon in the next shipment I could not wait. I love all their fish.

If you ever tasted then you must agree with me, but since salmon is family favorite we were eagerly anticipating our subscription box to come.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Easy, Delicious and a perfect family dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1- 1 1/2 pound Salmon Fillet, defrosted (Wild Alaskan)
  • Kosher Salt a good pinch or two, rub on the salmon
  • 1-2 teaspoon ground black Pepper
  • Lemon slices from 1 lemon
  • 1 teasoon dried Oregano
  • 5 tablespooms of Garlic-Herb Butter (if available)

Vegetables

  • 1 pound New Potatoes, I used red
  • 1/2 pound Green Beans
  • 1/2 pound Baby Carrots
  • 1 pound Broccoli, I used frozen florets 
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
  • 4-5 Garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried Oregano

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 375F

SALMON:

  1. Defrost salmon, and take it out of the pack. Take a large heavy-duty aluminum foil or parchment paper and then, season salmon with salt, pepper, herbs. Rub on both sides well, then place the sliced lemon on each slice of salmon and a tablespoon of butter. Wrap nicely and prep vegetables.
  2. Place Salmon to bake at the same time you will bake vegetables.
  3. Make sure to take it out after 25 minutes. That way salmon will not overcook. It will continue cooking in the foil until it is ready to be served. So do not open it until you are ready to eat or until vegetables are ready.

SHEET PAN VEGETABLES:

  1. Wash Potatoes and either cut them in half or the quarters.
  2. Season each vegetable with salt, pepper, and herbs, then place each vegetable next to each other but do not overcrowd the sheet pan. Make sure it is somewhat in one layer.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 40 minutes in 375F preheated oven.
  4. If the potatoes need a bit more time to cook, then remove all the other vegetables and allow potatoes to cook additional 2-3 minutes under the broiler (medium temp).

Notes

You may use any vegetables that you have or are in season; Cauliflower, asparagus, peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc. Possibilities are endless

You may cook vegetables in the air fryer, but potatoes might take a bit more time to crisp up.

If you do not have garlic and herbs butter available, then just add a pinch more salt, add more dried parsley and a teaspoon or two of garlic powder, that's it!

Shrimp Pad Thai

Shrimp Pad Thai

Shrimp Pad Thai

Shrimp Pad Thai, an effortless yet exquisite meal. It’s a shame that a majority of us go for take-out. Just think about how we could make these noodles right at home in less than 30 minutes.

I know one thing for sure, this meal will be far healthier. You can use whatever ingredients your heart desires within the making. 

Well, I have a variety of comfort foods that I savor, including these palatable noodles.

I absolutely adore the combination of shrimps and noodles; Toss in some extraordinary, mouth-watering Thai sauce, and I will, for sure, dive right into the platter without question.

Furthermore, I have a certain fondness toward food and love it, and I am not reluctant to say so.

We briskly consumed this with pleasure until the whole entire wok was completely devoured.

At that moment, my husband passionately declared that I must make this dish weekly.

Shrimp Pad Thai

Since I am now on the Keto Diet, it is exceedingly difficult for me to prepare my favorite foods for my family. 

Every few hours, I do not fail to smell the pleasant and sweet aroma of pancakes with warm buttery maple syrup drizzled on top or begin to daydream of a delicious sandwich.

One of the most strenuous meals to resist are these appetizing noodles. 

I continue to stick with the diet through all of the strain and struggle because I have a goal and a purpose for why I am doing Keto, and truly wish to complete what I feel is only necessary for the bettering of myself.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Shrimp

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Shrimp is an amazingly delicious and easy meal. As much as I love creamy pasta, olive oil and garlic is probably my favorite. Add shrimp to it and I am a happy camper for life.

The taste is absolutely astonishing, and if you never had this simple pasta, now is the time to make it.

Also, it is best if you serve it 5 minutes after its done because it tastes so much better. Trust me on that one.

I got to say that this whole meal is for about 6 people, but if you have pasta and shrimp lovers in your house, nobody will stick to the portion size, so make more just in case.

My family will never ever stick to portion size when it comes to pasta. We are true pasta lovers.

Our favorite dishes are Beef and Cheese Pasta, Pasta with Beef Sauce or Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Shrimp

Traditionally, you shouldn’t add cheese, but hey, I love cheese so the addition of grated cheese doesn’t hurt anyone.

If you do not eat shrimp, please use chicken or make it plain as it should be. By the way, Spaghetti Aglio e Olio means Spaghetti with garlic and oil.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Shrimp

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Simple, easy and delicious pasta with shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. EVOO
  • 3 Garlic Cloves sliced or minced
  • 4 Oz per person deveined medium-sized shrimp, tail-on
  • ¼ tsp. Sea Salt or to taste
  • ¼ tsp. Chili Pepper Flakes or chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. Dried parsley or 1/3 Cup Chopped Italian Parsley
  • 1 cup of Pasta water read below
  • Freshly grated cheese - Grana Padano or Parm Cheese
  • 1 lb. Spaghetti linguini could work well, too + water + salt

Instructions

  1. Put a large pot of salted water on to boil. Add pasta to the boiling water.  Cook according to your pasta pack. For this dish you pasta needs to be close to al dente because it will finish cooking in the skillet with the sauce.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil in the big skillet or a pan, scatter the garlic in the oil and cook for about 20 seconds just to infuse the olive oil, then add shrimps. Cook another minute, shaking the pan or turning shrimps on the other side, and cook until the garlic slices are even light gold and shrimp pink and whitish. If you do not like to deshell shrimps while eating, de-shell them before cooking.

  3. Add just a pinch of sea salt and chili flakes/powder, as well as dried parsley.
  4. Ladle in about 1 cup of boiling "pasta" water and cook rapidly for a minute or two, reducing the liquid by a third or so. Taste the sauce; add sea salt if needed to taste. Keep at a low simmer until the pasta is ready.
  5. When the pasta is not quite done but very close, bring the sauce to a rolling simmer, and then pull the pasta out a pot and add it to the skillet.
  6. Finish the sauce and pasta by tossing them together in the skillet over low to medium heat until the pasta is tender to the bite. If the dish is dry, incorporate more pasta water; if too saucy or soupy, reduce with higher heat and a bit more cooking. Add the parsley during tossing.
  7. Grate the cheese at the very end before serving and perhaps some more parsley.

Notes

Pasta water is water that pasta cooks in. The water in which you boil your pasta makes your pasta dish more delicious, binding the sauce to the pasta, while also improving the flavor and texture of the sauce.

You would just need to scoop or ladle a cup or two before the pasta is done or reserve it so you could add it to the sauce. How much salt to add to the pot of water before cooking pasta? 4 quarts (16 cups) water. 1 tablespoon regular table salt (or 1.5 tablespoons Kosher salt) 1 pound (uncooked) dry pasta.
