This Sheet Pan Salmon Florentine recipe is a great way enjoy a simple, but delicious seafood dinner.
In my ongoing quest to demonstrate that meal prep doesn’t have to take hours of your weekend, I’m doing a series on seafood. This dish is quick to prep for the freezer and cooks up easily on a sheet pan. Just dump the frozen meal out of the bag and onto the pan, and dinner will be ready in 30-40 minutes!
What Are Sheet Pan Dinners?
A sheet pan dinner is an easy meal where you place all the ingredients, typically meat and veggies, together on a sheet pan and bake them all together in the oven. You will usually season them with spices, salt and pepper, all on the pan before baking.
Sheet pan dinners are always a great idea because it really only takes minutes to pop some ingredients onto a pan for baking. But better still, you can prep your meals ahead of time in a zipper-top, food-safe bag and keep a bunch of them in the freezer so that the only thing you have to do is dump it out onto a sheet pan and pop everything in the oven. It’s makes meal time super quick and easy!
What You’ll Need
½ lb. frozen salmon fillet – I purchase a bag of individually frozen fillets at Costco. It makes prepping this sort of meal super simple. Just unwrap and toss into a larger bag with other frozen ingredients!
7 oz. package frozen pearl onions – If you can’t find these, you can easily chop fresh onions and put them on the pan just before baking, or into the bag to freeze. But if you intend on freezing them, chop them on the larger size. Chopping onions too small and then freezing can leave you with mush. So keep your chunks of onion at about ½ and inch or larger. Don’t go smaller.
½ lb. frozen spinach – This is just the blanched spinach in the frozen section at the store.
½ tsp. ground nutmeg – You can purchase ground nutmeg, or grind it yourself for a fresher flavor. Either way works.
2 tsp. garlic powder – Garlic granules work just as well here. Either one works.
½ medium tomato – Here again, don’t chop this too small. Keep your chunks larger or they will cook down to nothing in the oven.

Your video shows tossing with oil but the recipe does not have it as an ingredient. How much do you use?
Carole – I didn’t add any oil. I drizzled a little on after baking, but that was it. It baked pretty well that way, but if you are more comfortable with it, you could add 2-4 tbsp. of oil. Although to be honest, it might be best with this particular recipe to simply oil the pan. But it’s totally your choice. It worked for me just fine without any oil at all.
How long should you bake for if not starting from frozen?
Kate – I would make sure the oven is well pre-heated and then start checking it every 5 minutes at the 10 minute mark.
Thanks! Trying it tonight for my husband’s birthday – we are on a clean eating regimen. 🙂
Kate – Great! I hope you both enjoy it! 🙂 Just be sure the onions get fully cooked. They may actually take a little longer than the salmon.
trying this tonight! Will modify just a bit, using sweet onion slices since I don’t have pearl onions. Can’t wait to try it!
Elena – Sounds great! Let me know how it turns out! 🙂
