I Love Making Easy Sheet Pan Dinner Recipes

Remember that one time I made a sheet pan dinner and fell in love! Yeah … let’s do that again! Except let’s change everything in it and see if it’s still as good as the last one. Mkay?

I think you guys liked that Honey Mustard Chicken & Vegetables as much as me because it’s one of my top pins on Pinterest! Woohoo!

Balsamic Vinegar Adds A Ton Of Flavor To This Salmon

This time I changed up the sauce and used my absolute favorite way to add flavor to a dish. BALSAMIC VINEGAR! Ya’ll I could drink the stuff! I probably use it way to much at home, but you know what, I don’t care! I own the fact that I’m a balsamic addict!

The sauce for this one is pretty simple, it’s just Balsamic Vinegar, Honey, fresh thyme, garlic, and a little bit of mustard. Whisk that together and you’re good to go.

I decided to go with Salmon as the protein for this one, because why not!

One of my little tricks when I’m running low on inspiration is to pull out my Flavor Bible! And no, I’m not making that name up! It is a book my mom gave me for Christmas one year and I absolutely love it … it really is called “The Flavor Bible.” It is basically an encyclopedia of food and ingredients. It tells you which ingredients go with which flavors, foods, spices, etc.

IT’S AWESOME!

What Ingredients Are In This Sheet Pan Salmon Recipe? 

In fact, I learned that Asparagus and Salmon compliment each other really well in that book. So when I was trying to figure out which vegetables to use as the base I knew I wanted asparagus and brussels sprouts, then I added in some potatoes for the carbs.

Everything about this Sheet Pan meal is dreamy! It has the sweet factor from the balsamic and honey, but still has the savory element from the dijon, thyme, and veggies!

Your going to adore everything about this meal and so will your family!

How Long Does Sheet Pan Balsamic Salmon Take To Make?

Yeah … you better be going to the grocery store right now!

Bon Appetit friends and happy weekend!

    I had really high hopes for this recipe. But the veggies DO NOT COOK in this amount of time. I had to pick out all of the potatoes and put them back in for another 15 minutes (and this was after quartering them instead of leaving them whole for fear this would happen). I’d recommend boiling the potatoes for a little while before putting them into the roasting pan. Also, the balsamic was a bit much for me (and I followed the exact recipe) so I’ll be omitting that next time. Otherwise, this recipe was easy and tasty 🙂

      Ohhh I’m sorry to hear that Paige! Thanks for the recommendations, I hope it turns out better next time. Glad you liked the flavors though. 🙂

    I LOVE the Flavor Bible! It’s always at the ready for me 🙂 This dish – I love it, too! Those veggies are so pretty partnered up with the salmon. Sign me up!
