My husband and I are huge fans of sheet pan meals. I love creating and serving paleo and Whole30 sheet pan dinners, because they are so easy to make and super tasty. My husband is always on board because that means it’s less dishes for him to do. And this Asian-inspired recipe has recently been one of our favorites!
If you enjoy seafood and want to make a low-carb meal your family can enjoy, I highly recommend this sheet pan salmon and veggies. It is a simple meal that does not require you to use a ton of cooking equipment. Also, you’ll only need a handful of ingredients to prepare a meal that you can bake in the oven and serve for lunch or dinner. Leftovers are also delicious when you reheat the next day!
Sheet Pan Salmon & Bok Choy Recipe
This sheet pan salmon is a seafood dish you can prepare on a sheet pan in the oven. You do not need to use a skillet and everything is cooked together so the cleanup is a breeze as well! You can add your seasoned salmon to the sheet pan with the other ingredients in this dish, including bok choy and minced garlic.
What Is Bok Choy?
Bok choy is Chinese cabbage. It is a crunchy, tasty vegetable that is a great source of fiber. Besides providing you with fiber, bok choy also contains powerful antioxidants. It is the perfect ingredient to add to your sheet pan that goes so well with salmon, and it’s perfect for a paleo or keto lifestyle. One thing you will notice after preparing the sheet pan salmon dinner is how amazing salmon and bok choy taste together, and you can even serve it with rice if you are fine with eating grains.
Is It Keto-Friendly?
The sheet pan salmon and bok choy is a delicious keto-friendly meal. It will leave you feeling full and has just 2 grams of net carbs per serving. If you still want to eat healthy after a busy day, this is a great meal to make because it is quick, simple, and flavorful. Not only is it keto-friendly, it’s also paleo, Whole30, and AIP with simple substitutions.
Which Cooking Oil is Best to Use?
Avocado oil is a great oil to use when preparing the sauce for your salmon. Not only is it great for high heat cooking, it doesn’t really have a specific taste to alter the flavor of this Whole30 sheet pan dinner. However, you can use a different type of oil if you do not like avocado oil or don’t have it on hand. Extra virgin olive also works well for this dish.
What is Coconut Aminos?
Coconut aminos is a sauce that comes from coconut sap. It tastes a lot like soy sauce, but it’s Whole30 and paleo friendly without any grains. It will add a slight salty tanginess to the salmon when you drizzle it over your salmon and bok choy.
Which Coconut Aminos Is Good to Use?
Several brands offer coconut aminos. It does not matter which brand you use, but my favorite brand is the Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos. You can buy it online, and these days, most grocery stores will also sell it.
Can I Add More Ingredients to the Sheet Pan?
While the salmon goes great with the bok choy, you can add other vegetables to your sheet pan. Some of the other ingredients that go great with salmon include fresh asparagus spears, green beans, and red potatoes. If you are following a keto diet, you can skip the potatoes and add cauliflower instead.
What to Do With Your Leftovers
If you have salmon & bok choy leftovers, you can store them in a container or freezer bag and put them in the fridge. Leave your leftovers in the fridge for up to three days. You can reheat the leftovers in the microwave or in the oven. You can even shred the salmon into pieces and add it to a salad with lettuce and tomatoes. I personally love it in tacos or sandwiches!
