WHAT IS A SHEET PAN MEAL?

I don’t know who created the first sheet pan meal but I would like to thank them personally! It is such an easy way to get dinner on the table!!

The concept of a sheet pan dinner is that the whole meal is cooked on one sheet pan in the oven.

It contains the main protein and vegetables all cooked together.

The result is a delicious one pan dinner. There are tons of different ways to create sheet pan dinners. It is easy to get creative!!

WHAT MAKES THIS A KETO RECIPE?

This recipe is wonderful for people following a keto or low-carb lifestyle. Most “crusted” recipes call for bread crumbs for the coating on the protein.

This recipe uses crushed pork rinds which are a great low-carb substitute for bread crumbs.

If you aren’t following a low carb diet you can easily use bread crumbs instead of the crushed pork rinds.

STEP TWO: PREPARE VEGGIES

Wash the vegetables.

Slice the yellow squash into 1/4 inch thick rounds.

Cut the red bell peppers into bite-sized chunks and cut the onion into small wedges.

Put all the cut veggies into a large bowl and toss with the olive oil. Salt and pepper the veggies to taste.

Pour the coated vegetables onto the sheet pan and arrange them so that there is a space left open in the middle for the salmon fillets.

It is now time to put the crust on the salmon fillets.

Dip each salmon fillet face down one at a time in the garlic butter and then coat in the pork rind mixture.

Place the coated fillets skin side down in the middle of the sheet pan.

Sprinkle any remaining pork rind mixture over the top of the veggies on the sheet pan.
