Lemon Salmon with Roasted Veggies

Another sheet pan dinner? You bet. They’re easy, fast, and delicious. What’s not to like? Our salmon with veggies and feta can be a great dish for a quick and healthy meal! With an abundance of health benefits, you’d be hard pressed to find anything more filling and delicious than this.

Healthy Ingredients

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are essential for brain health, reducing inflammation, and supporting heart health.

This nutritious fish is also a great source of high-quality protein. Eating protein-rich foods like salmon regularly can help promote muscle strength and weight loss and management by increasing feelings of fullness.

Of course salmon is also packed with vitamin D, vitamin B12, selenium, and potassium. These nutrients play vital roles in bone health, immune function, energy metabolism, and overall well-being. One thing is clear – salmon is an essential part of your diet (or at least it should be!)

But salmon isn’t the only healthy ingredient in this dish. It’s also packed with nutritious veggies like asparagus, broccoli, and tomatoes! These nutrient-rich vegetables are wonderful sources of vitamin c, vitamin K, potassium, fiber, and so much more! 

When you combine all of these ingredients, you’re left with a meal that your body, mind, and tastebuds will thank you for!

How to Make Salmon with Veggies and Feta

Gather up your ingredients and preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure it’s nice and hot when we’re ready to cook. 

First, you’re going to need to grate some lemon zest into a small bowl with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Next, cut up your vegetables into evenly portioned pieces. Arrange the salmon and vegetables on a rimmed baking sheet. Gently rub the seasoning mixture all over the salmon and veggies so they’re evenly coated.

Slide the pan into the preheated oven and let everything roast uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes. This gives the veggies time to become tender-crisp and the salmon to cook through perfectly.

Once done, sprinkle on some crumbly feta cheese for a nice pop of salty flavor. Enjoy your sheet pan dinner fresh from the oven! It’s that simple!

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some commonly asked questions about baking salmon and vegetables on a sheet pan. If you don’t see the answer you’re looking for, drop your question in the comment section!

Can I add other vegetables to the baking tray?

Yes, you can customize this salmon with veggies and feta recipe by adding other vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini, or onions to the baking tray. Just make sure to cut them into uniform sizes so they cook evenly with the salmon and other veggies. You can also switch up the cheese and try Parmesan instead of feta! 

Can I swap the protein in this sheet pan recipe?

You sure can! It’s really a basic formula: protein + seasoning + colorful vegetables + toppings = endless possibilities! If you’re not big on salmon, chicken is a great alternative. We would recommend using chicken tenderloins or pounded chicken breasts so that the cooking temperature and time wouldn’t vary too much. If you choose to use chicken instead of salmon, be sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. 

How do I prevent the vegetables from becoming too soggy?

To prevent the vegetables from becoming soggy, make sure not to overcrowd the baking tray. Arrange them in a single layer, so they roast evenly and develop a nice caramelized exterior.

How do I store my leftover salmon with veggies?

Store leftover baked salmon and vegetables in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. The vegetables will be less soggy if you reheat them in the oven, but the microwave will work just fine if you’re at school or in the office!
