Why You’ll Love this Baked Feta Salmon Recipe

If you’ve been on social media at all over the course of the last year, it’s likely that you’ve come across at least one variation of the viral baked feta pasta recipe. Obviously, we had to try it as soon as we saw it, and honestly, we could see why it went viral. It’s seriously delicious. However, we wanted to do our own spin on it by adding an extra dose of protein, and the results were a hit! This baked feta salmon is: 

  • Quick to prepare and faster to clean up for the easiest sheet pan dinner
  • Full of protein, healthy omega fats, and fiber
  • Family-friendly for a meal even the kids will love
  • An easy way to use up leftover veggies 

Basic Ingredients

Honestly, we used the creation of this recipe as an excuse to clear out our fridge. As a result, it’s loaded with a wide variety of veggies! 

  • Salmon – There’s always a lot of debate regarding what type of salmon is healthiest, but we agree that you should use whatever you like best. No matter what you choose, it’s going to taste great! 
  • Vegetables – We included cherry tomatoes, red and green peppers, zucchini, and red onion. That said, there’s really no right or wrong. Use whatever veggies you like best and have on hand. 
  • Feta – For this recipe, we used crumbles instead of a whole block, but you could definitely use a block if preferred. Just be sure to break it up once cooked. 
  • Herbs and Seasonings – A combination of minced garlic, salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, oregano, thyme, and rosemary creates an herbaceous flavor you’re going to adore. 
  • Olive Oil – A healthy drizzle of oil helps caramelize the veggies as they bake and locks moisture into the salmon, keeping it flaky and delicious. Plus, it’s a great source of healthy fats!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make this Recipe Ahead of Time? 

Baked salmon is best served fresh. However, if you happen to have leftovers (which we highly doubt), they can be kept in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Then, cover it with foil, and reheat it in the oven. The microwave will cause it to dry out. 

Can I Use Frozen Salmon?

Technically you can, but we don’t recommend it. You’ll get the best flavor with fresh salmon. Yet, if you do use a frozen variety, be sure to let it thaw completely, and use a towel to pat off any excess moisture before baking. 

Can I Use a Different Protein? 

Sure! Pretty much any protein you like best should work. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

  1. Can I make this with Mahi instead of salmon? My husband is not a fan of salmon. How would I adjust the cooking time?

    1. Yes! Mahi should cook in 15 minutes at 350. You can always bake the veggies for 20 minutes and add the fish and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes!

  2. 5 stars
    This was a big hit and I will definitely be making it again. Followed the recipe step by step and plated it over couscous. Easy weeknight meal that looks like it took a lot of time and effort.

  3. Delicious! This is my second Food Dolls recipe and I am hooked! Can’t wait to try something new. My family has loved both recipes. It is usually hard to please everyone but nothing but compliments all around. So happy I found your site.

    Found this recipe via Pinterest and my husband and I LOVE it! We had to leave out the rosemary because we didn’t have any, but still tasted AMAZING! We baked at 375 for 40min for completely cooked salmon. Thank you for an awesome recipe that is sure to be a staple dinner now!
