Sheet Pan Salmon Dinner with lemon and tarragon
Hi Everyone, I am so happy to share this easy and delicious Sheet Pan Salmon Dinner just in time for Fall when you want a quick, yet satisfying dinner.
I recently did some similar salmon recipes, Lemon Rosemary Salmon and Fresh Herb Baked Salmon. All of these salmon recipes are garden-inspired since this year, I started an herb garden. Cooking with fresh herbs adds so much to the experience of cooking and eating.
Tarragon is so great to cook with fish as well as chicken recipes and pairs very well with garlic and lemon. It reminds me of fennel or anise but perhaps not as strong.

One of the neat things about growing your own herbs is that when they flower, often times the flowers are edible as well. For example, the Mexican tarragon I grow has yellow flowers (as shown in the photos). I used some of the springs with the flowers to garnish the plates when serving. I also used regular tarragon in this recipe so don’t worry if you can’t find the Mexican variety – they are both very similar.
