Sheet pan dinners can be thought of as an oven-friendly version of a "one pot" meal and y'all know how much I LOVE the ease of a one-pot meal on busy days. On the same baking sheet, we will prepare our gorgeous garlic-herbed salmon & lobster, along with some potatoes and ripe cherry tomatoes. Essentially we throw everything onto a sheet pan and pop it in the oven and VOILA dinner is cooked.
This fancy little sea crustation has some seriously amazing health benefits as well as being completely delicious!

Let’s dig into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
Slice and dice your baby potatoes and sweet potatoes into bite-sized chunks and rinse and pat dry, adding them to a medium bowl. Add grapeseed oil, sea salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, oregano, basil, garlic powder, parsley, and red pepper flakes and using your hands, massage everything together.
Once fully coated, place seasoned potatoes unto baking sheet, spreading them evenly and bake them for 20 minutes until slightly tender.
Meanwhile, season Salmon with garlic herb seasoning and set aside to marinate a bit.
After 20 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven and add salmon. Arrange potatoes and salmon to your liking, leaving a bit of space for remaining veggies later on.
Bake salmon and potatoes for 20 minutes before adding lobster tails.
To prep lobster tails, slightly crack shell and remove most of lobster meat outside of shell without completely detaching shell from meat. **NOTE: This allows the lobster meat to fully cook through with shell blocking it.**
Add lobster tails to sheet pan, along with broccoli and tomatoes. Ensure that nothing is over-crowded and everything is side by side as much as possible.
Generously brush tops of lobster meat (and salmon if desired) with butter mixture and bake everything for 15 minutes or so.
Once potatoes + veggies are tender, lobster is cooked through, and salmon is cully cooked, remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Serve and enjoy!
Seafood like salmon and lobster can be kept fresh in the fridge for up to three days if stored in an airtight container. Salmon that has been cooked can be kept fresh in the freezer for up to three months. To reheat it in the oven, first, let it defrost completely in the fridge.
A cooking thermometer is the most convenient tool for this task. The internal temperature of salmon fillets, taken from the thickest area, should reach 145 degrees Fahrenheit before they are considered cooked through. But if you don't have a thermometer no problem! Try grazing the fillet gently with a fork -It's ready to eat when its flesh becomes opaque and easily flakes.
Nope! It cooks perfectly without the need to flip sometimes flipping can result in your little fishy friend sticking to the pan which nobody wants!
It sure is! Some people love it some people hate it, if you like crispy skin then go ahead! Totally up to you!
