How to make sheet pan salmon

  1. Cook the potatoes: Halve the potatoes and cook in a big pot of salted water until just fork tender. Drain and allow to dry in the strainer for a few minutes. Tip the potatoes into a greased sheet pan then drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place in the oven and allow to roast for 15 minutes until the potatoes start to turn golden brown.
  2. Make the garlic lemon butter: In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, crushed garlic, a teaspoon chilli flakes, dried oregano, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, toss the broccolini with a few teaspoons of olive oil, salt and pepper then add to the pan with a few lemon slices.
  3. Add the salmon: Remove the potatoes from the oven. Add the salmon to the pan, skin-side down, then spread the butter over the top of each fillet of salmon.
  4. Bake: Place back in the oven and allow to cook for 15 minutes until the salmon and broccolini are cooked. Remove from the oven and serve with extra lemon wedges for squeezing.

Can I make this ahead?

The potatoes can be boiled a day in advance and kept in the fridge. The garlic butter can also be made ahead. The salmon is definitely best served immediately but I if you would prefer to meal prep this recipe, allow the baked salmon to cool completely and place the leftovers in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to two days.

  1. So you take the potatoes out and leave them out then cook the salmon alone with the broccolini’s then what about the potatoes put them back on the sheet after ?
