Easy One Pan Salmon and Tomatoes

Inspired by author and chef Melissa Clark’s wonderful book, Dinner: Changing the Game: A Cookbook, and maybe by a tiny bit of overexposure to our kitchen these last few months, we decided to chart a simple course for everyday meals this summer. Sheet pan dinners to get us through the weekdays. Fresh ingredients. Loads of flavor. One pan. From oven to plate… simply delicious!

Cook up this salmon and tomato recipe for a delicious, no-fuss seafood dinner. Just season, roast, and enjoy!

Easy One Pan Salmon and Tomatoes Recipe


2 pieces of salmon
50 halved cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp fresh oregano leaves
1/4 tsp lemon zest
1/4 asp salt
1 cup pitted Kalamata olives
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup olive oil


  1. First, prepare a simple tapenade by blending 2 tbsp fresh oregano leaves, 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives, ¼ tsp lemon zest, salt, pepper, and ¼ cup olive oil.
  2. Roast 50 halved cherry tomatoes at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  3. Brush 2 pieces of salmon with oregano-olive tapenade. Add salmon to the pan, along with sliced olives and fresh oregano stems. Cook everything for another 10 minutes.
  4. Squeeze fresh lemon on top before serving.

We gratefully acknowledge the wonderful author and chef Melissa Clark, who set us on this flavorful path! Please order her very helpful and delicious book: Dinner: Changing the Game: A Cook Book.
