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.

    Made this for dinner last night, it was absolutely delicious! I recommend this to anyone who wants to make a quick and healthy meal that tastes phenomenal. So easy to prepare. The veggies had just the right texture and the salmon was perfect. I will make this again for sure. Everyone loved it

    My husband was very unsure of this recipe as I was making it (salmon, on vegetables??), but he raved about it after I made it! It was a delicious, healthy way to serve salmon, very flavorful! I recommend reducing the amount of vegetables slightly as we had a lot of those leftover (although I was happy to eat them cold as a snack!).

    1. We’re so happy to hear this! Thank you for trying it out and taking the time to leave feedback, Rebecca. 😊

    This has become my go-to for a healthy and delicious dinner, and my family requests it over and over again. I’ve made this about 8 times now, and it’s been a huge hit every time!

  4. 4 stars
    This recipe was very good, but next time I’ll cut down on the spices as they were a bit overpowering. I’m glad I used half the amount of salt and will do the same next time with all of the spices.

    1. Oh no, we are sorry that you found this overpowering. We appreciate the feedback! xo, Alia & Radwa

  5. There was so much moisture from the tomatoes, zucchini and peppers so you need rice or something but other than that this was absolutely delicious and I will make again.

    1. We’re sorry to hear it had too much liquid but are glad you enjoyed it! You can try sprinkling the veggies with salt and letting them rest for about 5 minutes to reduce the moisture content. Hope this helps!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 5 stars
    This was fantastic! I was soaking up the amazing juices with some crusty bread because I didn’t want to waste any of it. And sooo easy too! I have all kinds of fun ideas to incorporate those scrumptious leftover veggies – can’t wait!!

    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!
