Sriracha Mayo Baked Salmon w/ Potato & Squash – Easy Sheet Pan Salmon and Vegetables!
Who says healthy has to be boring? Make weeknights exciting and EASY with this sriracha mayo baked salmon sheet pan dinner!
With seafood, spicy mayo is a classic flavor pairing, and it’s so simple to make your own at home. But, I recommend choosing a cleaner variety of mayonnaise, like an olive oil or avocado oil mayo, if you can find one.
Or, keep your sriracha mayo baked salmon even CLEANER by whipping up a batch of homemade mayo! I’ve used both olive oil and avocado oil to make my own homemade mayo, and it’s always amazingly easy and delicious.
Then, I add some blended cashews on top for a crunchy, crusted salmon filet! Really, you can use any nuts that you like, or even seeds if you prefer. The purpose is just to create a fun texture twist on your sriracha mayo baked salmon!
Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner Strategy:
Sheet pan dinners rock—everything goes on one pan and I’ve got fewer dirty dishes to do! But, your veggies will require a bit longer to cook than your sriracha mayo baked salmon. So, to prevent your salmon from drying out, simply cover it with a small tent of foil before it goes in the oven!
Make this Dinner YOUR Ultimate Meal
To complete this salmon sheet pan dinner, I cook my filet with some potato wedges and a medley of eggplant, yellow squash, and baby zucchini. The veggie medley is perfectly light and refreshing, and roasted potatoes make any healthy dinner more satisfying!
As always, feel free to pair your sriracha mayo baked salmon with whichever combination of veggies you want. There’s plenty of room for flexibility, so craft this sheet pan dinner into your ultimate, most delicious meal.
(Although, I’ve gotta say, those roasted potato wedges are great for dipping in any leftover spicy mayo!)
