This Easy Asian Sheet Pan Salmon & Green Beans tastes just like one of my FAVORITE restaurant meals. The sauce has so much flavor from the fresh garlic and ginger and the salmon is perfectly tender and flakey. The green beans get slightly crispy and are the perfect side dish for the salmon.
I got this beautiful wild caught salmon from Butcher Box (it’s amazing) but I also can find wild caught salmon at Sam’s Club for a good price. Both come frozen, so I let it thaw in my fridge and then when I am getting ready to use it, I pat it dry with a paper towel. I also always check for little bones or scales before I pot the sauce over it.
I love to make the sauce in a small mason jar so that I can add all the ingredients, give it a good shake and pour it directly over the salmon. The sauce is what makes this recipe so good. It has fresh garlic, ginger, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, sesame oil and some pepper flakes and it is absolute perfection. Some of this incredible sauce gets reserved to make a glaze for when the salmon comes out of the oven.
I use fresh green beans (I get mine from Sam’s Club) because they cook perfectly alongside the salmon. They get tender on the inside but still have some crisp, which is what I love. I toss them in some sesame oil, salt and pepper before they go on the sheet pan. I love how easy the prep is for such a delicious meal.
The salmon and green beans can be a delicious meal all on their own, but I also love to serve it over some cauliflower rice to add some extra veggies. The cauliflower rice also soaks up an extra sauce and it’s so yummy!
