One-Sheet Pan Cilantro-Lime Salmon
Yesssss…make it this week!
This salmon recipe is super quick to put together and even faster on the clean-up duty, thanks to our one-sheet pan method.
We love serving this salmon for a quick dinner, but it’s equally as great for prepping ahead a few lunches to take with you as your food prep throughout the week.
Feel free to double, triple, or quadruple this recipe to fit your family size…it turns out GREAT!
