A quick and easy weeknight sheet pan meal, this Baked BBQ Salmon is perfect for when we’re craving BBQ but want minimal clean up.


  • 1 lb. salmon, cut into filets
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 large (or 2 small) sweet potato, cut into wedges (about 1720 wedges)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch green beans (about 11 ounces), trimmed


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Brush salmon with BBQ sauce on all sides. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, add sweet potato wedges, 2 tablespoons olive oil, chili powder and smoked paprika. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Toss together to evenly coat.
  4. Spread sweet potato onto baking sheet.
  5. Toss green beans in the same bowl with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to evenly coat.
  6. Spread out onto baking sheet, saving room in the middle for the salmon. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  7. Lower oven to 300 degrees F.
  8. Add salmon onto baking sheet and continue cooking until salmon is flaky and reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees F (for medium salmon), about 20 minutes.*
  9. Evenly portion out salmon, sweet potato wedges and green beans.


  1. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fish. Thicker pieces may require a longer cooking time.
  2. The USDA safe internal cooking temperature recommendation for fish is 145°F.
  3. If you don’t cut salmon into filets before cooking in the oven, it will take longer to cook.
