I’m starting my low carb diet again and made one of my favorite sheet pan lemon basil salmon recipes this weekend that I think you’ll love! Making sheet pan dinners is so easy and perfect for busy week nights!
My friend Cate shared this recipe several years ago for one of my free weekly meal plan dinners. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked!
This delicious baked salmon recipe is fast, easy and since you bake it in foil on a sheet pan, there is no pan to wash! Fresh basil, butter, lemon, asparagus and tomato are a great combination! Feel free to substitute the asparagus for your favorite green vegetable.
I love that it only takes a few steps to make. You can assemble the foil packs ahead of time, then bake when you’re ready for dinner.
