I always get asked on Instagram how I cook my salmon and 9 times out 10 it is done in my cast iron skillet so I get that crispy outside with a soft inside, but lately I have been feeling this Simple Sheet Pan Salmon in a sweet ginger marinade. It is an easy way to cook up both the veggies and the salmon together and get both perfectly cooked! I like eating this right away or using it as a part of my meal prep.

I am a big fan of sheet pan meals because it keeps things super simple and easy AND it keeps the clean up to a minimum. Which for me usually means my girlfriends cleanup is a minimum. We’ve got a great arrangement where she cooks and I clean. I think as long as I keep making meals that she likes I thiiiiink I will keep having a clean up crew (at least whenever I am at her house). She also gets to make requests. Her recent request was scallops which happen to be one of my favorites as well. I particularly love this scallop recipe for date night.
The video above shows just how easy it is to throw this simple sheet pan salmon together in less than 30 minutes. I highly reccomend it for a weeknight dinner when you are in a rush or adding it to a Sunday meal prep session. If I am using it for meal prep I usually throw it into a meal prep container with a salad. If I am eating it right away, then I definitely want it with cauliflower rice and extra sauce. If you are making this meal for Whole30 be sure that the pineapple juice that you are using is 100% juice and that the sesame oil doesn’t have any weird filler oils.
