Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon
I’ve been on the hunt for some fun new recipe ideas for my Whole30in30 series on Instagram and I’ve come to the conclusion that traybakes are a total winner.

Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon
Have you been following along for my Whole30in30? Every Tuesday on Instagram I have been making a Whole30 recipe with a 30 minute timer counting down. A few of the dishes have resulted in a chaotic scramble to get things finished in time, but the sheet pan recipes always leave me feeling relaxed with time to spare. Plus minimal dishes to do at the end which is always a bonus in my books.


I really love the Asian flavours in this Sheet Pan Teriyaki Salmon. To start bok choy, scallions, broccolini and asparagus are tossed in sesame oil and shredded chilies and then baked in the oven for 10 minutes.

You don’t have to stick to these 4 veggies and could include things like peppers, snap peas or green beans instead, just be sure to use vegetables with a similar cook time (ie don’t use potatoes, butternut squash or root vegetables which require longer in the oven.

The teriyaki sauce is incredibly easy to make and requires just a few ingredients. Everything is blended until smooth and then heated in a saucepan for a few minutes to reduce and thicken in consistency. If the sauce isn’t thickening feel free to whisk in 1/2 tbsp of arrow root powder (or corn starch if you aren’t Paleo/Whole30).

I think the veggies and salmon make a great all in one meal, but if you are looking to add another side, I highly recommend this coconut & lime cauliflower rice which is quick and perfect for soaking up and excess sauce.
