27 Sheet Pan Salmon Recipes, Because You Love Cooking but Hate Cleaning

When we want to eat something that feels wholesome but a still little bit fancy, we reach for salmon. It’s easy to cook at home but has the restaurant vibes that give it an extra edge against boneless, skinless chicken breasts. And when you make it on a sheet pan, you only have one dish to clean when dinner is over. Here, 27 sheet pan salmon recipes to prove our point.
