Sheet Pan Garlic Lime Salmon

Sheet Pan Garlic Lime Salmon


  • 3 small or 2 large bell peppers, cut into thin strips*
  • 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced 
  • 4 salmon fillets (roughly 6 ounces each but doesn’t need to be exact)
  • 1/2 cup of lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped cilantro
  • for serving: lime wedges and additional chopped cilantro


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F and spray a large baking tray with cooking oil.
  2. Make the marinade by whisking together the lime juice, water, olive oil, garlic, red chili flakes, cumin, fine sea salt, honey, and cilantro. Set aside.
  3. Place the peppers and onion on your baking tray and toss together with 1/3 of the marinade. Make space in the center or on the side of the tray and place the salmon fillets. Top with another 1/3 of the marinade. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.
  4. Top with additional marinade to serve and ENJOY!

*I’ve found that the sizes of bell peppers vary greatly. If yours are small than you might want 3. If they’re large (as often found at grocery stores), 2 is probably perfect.
