Whole30 + Keto Sheet Pan Salmon + Asparagus Marinade
The key to this sheet pan dinner is the delicious marinade you pour over the salmon and asparagus.
It is a mixture of olive oil, chicken stock, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic + parsley. You drizzle it on top, and it gives the salmon and asparagus the most bright and delicious flavor.
Roasting Time for Whole30 + Keto Sheet Pan Salmon
Once you have it all drizzled and coated in the marinade, you’ll put it in a COLD oven, then set the temperature to 350ºF.
It will slowly cook the salmon as the oven comes to temperature, giving you perfectly juicy and cooked salmon every time!
Wild Caught Large Salmon Filet
I love to use a whole large wild caught half salmon filet when doing this sheet pan dinner. My Costco carries thawed, wild caught salmon filets. It is the perfect amount to serve 4.
If you don’t have access to a large wild caught salmon filet, you can use 4 smaller wild caught salmon filets. I get my smaller wild caught salmon from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend! No need to adjust the roasting time.
Sheet Pan Salmon Veggies
My go to vegetable for my sheet pan salmon dinners is usually asparagus. But I’ve used green beans, zucchini, squash and even shaved brussel sprouts as a swap out and they’ve worked great too!

Whole30 + Keto Sheet Pan Salmon + Asparagus
- 1 pound wild caught salmon filet, or 4 smaller filets
- 2 pounds asparagus
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons bone broth or chicken stock
- zest from 1 lemon
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 2 teaspoons salt + pepper
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the olive oil, bone broth, lemon zest, lemon juice + parsley. Stir to combine.
- Place the salmon filet in the middle of the baking sheet, and arrange the asparagus around it. Drizzle the olive oil mixture over the salmon and the asparagus. Give the asparagus a quick toss to completely coat it.
- Season the salmon and asparagus with salt and pepper.
- Place the salmon in a COLD oven. Then turn it to 350ºF and set your timer for exactly 25 minutes. The salmon should have an internal temperature of 125ºF, and the asparagus should be perfectly crisp tender.
- Remove from the oven and rest for 2 minutes. Slice the salmon filet into 4 portions. Serve warm.
- Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for 5 days.

So easy and delicious!!!
I love to hear that it was easy to make and delicious Charlotte. Thanks for the feedback, it really means a lot to me.
Ouch! Why is the sodium count per serving 1274.3 mg!?!?!? That is beyond high
I sure hope you like my sheet pan salmon and asparagus dinner Karen. Thanks for catching the error with the sodium count. It was calculated wrong. Should actually be 94.2% which is 4% of your daily sodium intake. I appreciate you letting me know!
Love the directions! First time I‘ve seen adding pan to cold oven snd the setting temp. What a great tip. Can’t wait to try this!
Loved this recipe! I made it last night for dinner and it was so simple and easy, which was great after a long day at work. The salmon was perfectly seasoned as well as the asparagus. Even my two picky kids ate this. Thank you!
I am glad to hear it was simple to make and seasoned perfectly Sheleena. Even better that your two kids enjoyed it. That is such a mom win!
Another homerun, Natalie! This was amazingly delicious! I wasn’t sure about garlic, though. it mentioned it in the video and the blog post, but it wasn’t part of the recipe. Should I have added it? This will definitely be a regular contender in my dinner routine! Thank you for your steady stream of delicious recipes!
Garlic really isn’t a part of the recipe Kate. When I made the video I had a bunch of garlic on hand so I just threw it in. Feel free to add it if you like, but it is definitely optional. So glad you enjoyed it!
Hi Natalie, am I missing something? Your blog says to roast at 400 for 10 minutes, but the recipe says 350 for 25 minutes.
Sorry for the confusion, it’s 350 for 25 minutes Jessica. I sure hope you enjoy it!
SUPER EASY TO MAKE – simple ingredients that are almost always on hand in my house. SUPER EASY TO CLEAN UP – parchment paper hack for the win. SUPER EASY TO EAT – because it is so delicious. This is a meal prep must in our house!!
