So, when Jenni asked me to share a seafood recipe with YOU since she is busy with her new babe, I obviously said, “Yes!” I cannot imagine how hectic Jenni’s life must be with two littles running around and a new baby. I mean, my life is crazy busy and there are no little ones running around in my house. But sheet pan dinners are my saving grace when it comes to weeknight dinners and busy days in general. Plus, I’m all about minimizing the amount of dishes I need to wash so you can guarantee I do my best to get everything on one sheet 😉

Say hello to your new best friend Sheet Pan Salmon with Roasted Broccoli.

 

Salmon is a staple in my house; we eat it almost every week and it is incredibly easy to make! But here are some things to know when you go to the store to purchase salmon:

  1. Quality of salmon does matter. Wild-caught is traditionally better than farmed or fresh-farmed; but it is also more expensive. I purchase both depending on my grocery budget for the week. Pick which option is best for you and your family.
  2. Wild-caught salmon is typically leaner and less fatty than farmed salmon. Again, if you like a fish that is a little more buttery in flavor, the farmed might be the better option for you.
  3. Tip for picking out your filets: do the poke test. Yep, the poke test. Press your finger into the thickest part of the filet. If it springs back, the fish is fresh. If not, don’t buy it!
