Simple and healthy sheet pan salmon!

After developing my Easy Teriyaki Salmon recipe using my favorite flavor booster, All-Purpose-Stir-Fry Sauce, I started brainstorming different ways to turn it into a complete sheet pan dinner. I love the idea of sheet pan suppers, but it’s not always easy to pair a protein with vegetables that’ll cook at the same time AND taste good together. Luckily, this combo hits the mark!

Key cooking tips

  • Make sure you use thin French green beans (a.k.a. haricots verts) as opposed to regular old fat green beans. The skinnier green beans will be cooked through with a little crunch when the salmon is ready. If you can find only regular green beans, blanch them in boiling salted water first to par-cook them.
  • Cut the red bell pepper into thin strips so it cooks at the same time as the French green beans and quartered shiitake mushrooms.
  • Keep the veggies and salmon in a single layer so that everything cooks evenly!
  • You don’t have to line the rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, though it’ll make clean-up even easier. If you don’t use parchment, brush on some avocado oil before placing the ingredients directly on the sheet pan.

What are some other options for fish or vegetables?

I love using salmon fillets for this dish because fattier fish is a little more forgiving than leaner fish. However, you can definitely use cod, barramundi, or halibut in place of salmon. If green beans aren’t in season, trimmed asparagus spears or small broccoli florets can be used.

Ingredients

  • Salmon fillets: 4 to 5 ounce portions are the best size for this sheet pan dish
  • All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce: My super versatile sauce works great as a Whole30 teriyaki sauce!
  • French green beans
  • Fresh shiitake mushrooms
  • Red bell pepper
  • Avocado oil
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Scallions or green onions

How to make sheet pan teriyaki salmon

Place the salmon fillets in a high-sided dish where they’ll fit snugly. Pour in ⅓ cup of All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce.

Pouring All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce from a measuring cup onto four salmon fillets in a white square container.

Flip the salmon around in the marinade to coat well. Keep the fillets skin-side up in the marinade until you’re ready to cook. (Marinate the fish for as little as 15 minutes, but no longer than 8 hours in a sealed container in the fridge.)

Flipping the salmon fillets skin-side up in the Whole30 teriyaki marinade.

When you’re ready to cook the sheet pan dinner, heat the oven to 400°F with the rack in the middle.

In a large bowl, whisk together ¼ cup All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce with 1 tablespoon avocado oil. (You should have about 2 tablespoons of “clean” All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce remaining to brush over everything later.)

Bake the sheet pan dinner for 10 to 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your preferred doneness. (I like the salmon cooked to about medium, about 130°F to 135°F in the thickest part of the fillet.)

Once the salmon is finished cooking and the vegetables are browned, brush on the reserved “fresh” All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce (not the stuff the salmon was marinated in) to add a bright kick of flavor.

  1. Looks delicious! It’s not yet sockeye season so I’m wondering if chicken could be done this way. Adjusting for time of course.

  2. Made this tonight for the first time! I discovered that shiitake mushrooms are pricy (but probably worth it), that I need a bigger pan (had to use two 13x9s), and that the beans need more cooking time. It was fun to make a new recipe and it really was delicious! Yay – two servings of leftovers for me and one for the neighbour who loaned her soy sauce and garlic powder!

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipe! Changed mind about grilling outside 1 1/2 hours before supper, found this recipe, my foster son and I put it together, and we were pronounced geniuses by my wife. Frozen and thawed beans from our garden cooked perfectly with 1” thick salmon fillets.
    I’ve not encountered a clunker recipe on this site yet. Amy, you’re in the right line of work. God bless your efforts as He has blessed us through your recipes
