Sheet Pan Garlic Herb Salmon, Lobster, + Veggies

To be honest, I truly enjoy making these easy, one-pot (or pan) meals. While more complex recipes allow for me to get super creative in terms of the put-together, etc., making something easy (which I know is LOVED by you guys) is my most fave!

If you love Garlic Herb flavor, then this is a MUST!

Like many (if not all) of the recipes on Orchids + Sweet Tea, this sheet pan meal is SUPER flavorful, colorful, and just AMAZING!

What Is A Sheet Pan Dinner?

So I have another sheet pan dinner for you guys, they’re just too darn easy but first what even is a sheet pan dinner?

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. 

You’ll Love This Recipe Because It’s…

  • Easy to prep- We are talking like 10 mins only
  • Versatile - This is an awesome last-minute fam dinner, yet fancy enough to serve any company in a pinch!
  • One Pan Magic- I have said it once and I will say it again. I LOVE sheet pan meals! They are super easy and simple and create just one pan for me to wash!
  • Hands-off cooking- Once I pop everything in the oven, the veggies and seafood bake away to tender perfection! Leaving you free to focus on other things!
  • Flavorful- Did someone say garlic herby goodness?
  • Healthy-Lean omega-rich proteins ahoy!
  • Simple Ingredients- Salmon and lobster might be a little special (and sometimes expensive) to buy, but the rest of these ingredients you likely have handy in your kitchen.

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!

Bon Appetit!

Sheet Pan Garlic Herb Salmon, Lobster & Veggies Q + A's

How To Store Leftovers

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.

How Do I Know When My Salmon Is Cooked?

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.

Do I Need To Flip Salmon?

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! 

Is Salmon Skin Safe To Eat?

It sure is! Some people love it some people hate it, if you like crispy skin then go ahead! Totally up to you!

  1. Hi! I love how informative and great your articles are. Can you recommend any other blogs that share blogs that share information on Vegan Salmon or vegan recipes in general? Thanks a lot!

    • Hi! Thanks so much! Unfortunately, I don't know any blogs that share vegan salmon particularly. However, for other vegan recipes, I enjoy Jessica in the Kitchen and Minimalist Baker. 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us! I love adding unique recipes to my roundups, plus I love octopus, so yummy

  3. Delicious and visually stunning! I made it without the lobster and subbed olive oil for the grapeseed oil. The broccoli needed a bit more flavor to go with the rich flavors in the rest of the recipe. I'd suggest making a bit extra of the butter mixture and sprinkling it on the broccoli.

    • Hi Kristen! I'm so happy that you enjoyed this recipe! Yes, you definitely can make extra of the butter mixture for flavor----definitely up to those making it! Thanks so much for choosing my recipe! 🙂

  4. One of the best seafoood sheet pans I have ever ever! Delicious, healthy and just what I'd like to see when I am having a good time with my friends!
