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 allows for me to get super creative in terms of the put together, etc., making something easy (which I know are 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!

This recipe specifically was inspired by my love for one-pot dishes and of course, we always need a quick, easy meal that can be whipped together on those days when we’re extremely busy or perhaps tired. That’s why I created the Weeknight Meals category.

Personally, my favorite part of everything is the seafood.

While my meals aren’t often seafood, when I do decide to incorporate them, I’m ecstatic because I love things like salmon, fish, shrimp, lobster, scallops, etc.

These Jerk Salmon Tacos + Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce are a hit! I definitely recommend making these if you’re ever in the mood for Taco Tuesday or Taco ANY DAY!

Granted, unlike many people, I don’t go overboard with seafood with things like mussels, clams, or other speciality seafoods. Please know that there isn’t anything wrong with eating them.

I’m just not that adventurous with my palate. Haha.

Anyway, I’ve been super busy these days with research for the blog.

I’m now at a place where I’m looking for news way to making Orchids + Sweet Tea better and many those ways have been with revamping a bit of the equipment.

A better camera, different tools, backend fixes, etc. are now the newest things on my list to ensure that I better showcase my recipes to both you and brands that I work with.

So, the past week has been a whirlwind of research, new buys, and a host of other things to ensure that I end the first quarter off strongly.

Thankfully, I’ve had the pleasure of being featured in Food52, Red Tricycle, Blavity, and others since 2020 has started, as well as long-term features on One Green Planet, and I look forward to many others in the near future.

But of course, what matters most is that YOU love the stuff that I create and I’ve totally felt the love through shares, emails, personal messages, likes, and all of the above. THANK YOU GUYS!

Ok, moving on now! Haha.

Sheet Pan Garlic Herb Salmon, Lobster, + Veggies

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!
