Busy weeknights beg for something simple like this salmon sheet-pan dinner. Like the name suggests, it's all cooked on one pan. The potatoes get a head start, followed by sweet bell peppers and finally chili-coated salmon fillets. It's a complete meal with easy cleanup!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Toss potatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Transfer to the prepared pan and roast for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, lime zest and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Place bell peppers in the medium bowl and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 tablespoon of the spice mixture; toss well to coat. Coat the salmon with the remaining spice mixture.

  • After 15 minutes, remove the pan from the oven. Add the peppers and stir to combine. Roast for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven; move some of the vegetables over and add the salmon to the pan. Roast until the salmon is just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve with lime wedges.

Loved it... I added some onion to the peppers to round out the flavors. This is a really nice summer fiesta twist for salmon. I stayed pretty true the recipe... other than the addition of the onion, I made a light ranch fiesta sauce for my wife (she needs a cloaking device to eat a whole salmon filet) and she didn't even use it. That's the best endorsement for this recipe you can get. Read More

This was amazing! It was one of the simplest dinners that I have ever made! I did need to cook the salmon 5 minutes longer that the 8 minutes recommended. This made the peppers a little on the soft side. So maybe adjust the time to add salmon a little sooner. With all this said, the dinner was delicious! Read More

Simple to prepare and tasty! Great for a busy week night! Love one pan meals! Found I needed slightly longer cooking times for nicely roasted vegetables. Read More
