One Pan Salmon

In the last 3 weeks, we made this one pan salmon three times. I “borrowed” sauce recipe from my super popular honey garlic salmon one time and lime ginger salmon another. Most recently I tried it with this teriyaki salmon glaze.

Then I chose firm vegetables cut into similar size pieces to ensure veggies come out tender while salmon stays juicy.

Consistency throughout a sheet pan is key when it comes to one pan dinners.


We start with about 1.5 lbs salmon fillet. Preferably wild as science shows it is better for us and the environment.

When making one-pan dinner, it is important to pair wild salmon with vegetables that take same time to cook or cook veggies first. Because wild salmon is less fatty than farmed. It can come out dry if overcooked.


Cut vegetables into same size pieces. I do not peel brussels sprouts but rather just cut them in halves.

To chop butternut squash, I first cut off a part without a hole. Then chop them separately into more or less even size cubes. It helps to peel an entire butternut squash and save some for later. It refrigerates really well for up to a week (then you can use the leftovers for honey garlic butternut squash or slow-cooker butternut squash soup).

I like to make super simple butternut squash soup for lunch in my Blendtec. Or you can try my slow cooker butternut squash soup with quinoa, chicken, peanuts, pepper and Thai flavours. Mmmmmm.

Honey Garlic Sauce

To make honey garlic sauce, we combine honey, lemon juice, fresh garlic, salt and pepper (I love this sauce so much I’ve even made a honey garlic chicken). Give a whisk and use right away. Place salmon fillet in the middle of the baking sheet, pour 1/3 of honey garlic sauce on top and spread with a brush.

Then coat veggies in more sauce and a bit of oil so they roast nicely. Butternut squash first, then brussels sprouts. You can do it right on the pan but I like to dirty another bowl and just toss vegetables in there.

Transfer veggies as you are done seasoning them to a baking sheet. On one side of salmon fillet in a single layer. Repeat this step with brussels sprouts (I love roasted brussel sprouts!)

How Long to Bake Salmon?

Bake one pan salmon and veggies for 30 minutes in 425 degrees oven with squash side further in the oven. It is the longest cooking vegetable on this tray that could benefit from more heat.
