Roasted Green Beans & Potatoes
Before you make your crusted salmon, you need to get your veggies all seasoned up and roasting.
Simply coat your vegetables with olive oil, salt, and pepper and then spread them on a sheet pan. Place them in the oven and bake them for ten minutes.
How To Make Crusted Salmon At Home
Crusted salmon isn’t simply a culinary treat to be enjoyed when prepared by a chef in a restaurant. It’s truly simple enough to make at home.
This crusted salmon gets its flavors from the parmesan, lemon zest, garlic, and (of course!) oregano in the breading. Simply make up your seasoned breading mix with Panko breadcrumbs and press it on to the top of your salmon.
Then pull out your sheet pan of roasted veggies, push them to one side of the pan, and add your crusted salmon to the sheet. If you’d like an extra crispy, golden crust you can spray the top of the breading briskly with cooking spray before you cook it.
Then all of this flaky and flavor-laden goodness goes into the oven to bake until it is crispy and golden.
How To Serve Salmon Oreganata With Green Beans & Potatoes

This simple sheet pan salmon will be ready to enjoy in about 15 minutes, and should be served immediately. Simply pull the salmon and veggies off the sheet pan, put them on a plate, and enjoy right away. Bon appetite!
Wine Pairings With Salmon
I love serving salmon with white wines, but red wines like fruity Pinot Noir would also be a good match. Here are some of my favorites:
