Sheet pan meals are my absolute favorite because they are oh so simple to throw together during a busy week and everything is made on ONE pan making clean up such a breeze! Salmon is one of those dishes I just LOVE, but really don’t make often enough so since the month of May kicks off Alaska salmon season, I thought it would be the perfect time to make this dish!
I always make sure to buy wild-caught Alaska salmon because it’s natural, sustainable as well as a great source of protein. ALL of Alaska’s salmon is wild-caught so you know you’re purchasing the highest quality not to mention you are also getting a healthy, delicious dinner! Alaska seafood is sold fresh or frozen all year round making it super convenient to enjoy your favorite meal whenever you’d like.
I purchased my Alaska wild-caught salmon fresh at my local grocery store, but you could also easily buy them frozen if you preferred. There are 5 different species of salmon to choose from including king, sockeye, coho, keta and pink, and there are so many ways you can cook them too! Try pan-searing your fish, grilling, steaming, poaching, broiling or even roasting them on a pan like I did in this recipe. The possibilities are truly endless and it’s definitely fun to mix things up so you never get tired of the same old dish.
Sheet pan dinners are also really convenient for meal prep! Not only are they a total timesaver (AND lifesaver I should add), but you can customize them any way you like. Instead of green beans you could use broccoli or asparagus and even swap the carrots for potatoes or bell peppers. This particular combo just happened to be my favorite to go with this ginger soy mixture and honestly I think you’ll agree!
And YES let’s talk about this ginger soy sauce. It. Is. AMAZING. You guys just trust me on this. Not only is it sweet, but it has a little kick too and tastes absolutely delicious with the roasted veggies! The mixture includes soy sauce, a little honey, sweet chili sauce, fresh ginger and some garlic and feel free to reserve a little bit of the sauce to drizzle over the salmon after it is done baking. The end result?? Perfectly tender and flaky salmon that tastes just as delicious as it looks!
The great thing about this whole meal is that it really cooks in no time at all. Super easy clean-up and delicious leftovers you can enjoy the next day!
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we did and remember to #AskforAlaska the next time you are at your local grocery store or restaurant to get your own wild-caught Alaska salmon!
