Super Easy Sheet Pan Salmon Dinner

This sheet pan salmon dinner is super easy, and is loaded with PCOS-friendly nutrients! It’s a recipe that’s whole foods-based and supports an anti-inflammatory diet. All that in 30 minutes!

What makes this dinner a PCOS fighting dish?

Salmon is full of omega-3s; those healthy fats you’re always hearing about. Not only do they support heart health, but also help decrease inflammatory markers in the body which is key to minimizing PCOS symptoms.

Are your progesterone levels low? Healthy fats and protein aren’t the only nutrients salmon brings to the table.  The vitamin B6 found in this fatty fish supports natural production of progesterone in the body. Progesterone is essential for fertility and maintaining a healthy pregnancy.

Sheet pan salmon ingredients

In addition to being a PCOS-nutritional power house, salmon is the perfect protein when you’re looking for a quick meal. We recommend wild-caught salmon. It doesn’t have to be super expensive either. Buying in bulk can often times save you money. Look for family frozen packs. These are usually cut into individual filets and are very convenient for busy week-nights.

In this recipe we’re also using asparagus and fingerling potatoes. Both of these foods contain fiber to help with digestion and support weight management. Potatoes can be incorporated into a PCOS-friendly diet when used in a healthy way. When we eat the whole vegetable with the skin, they’re a great source of potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. Here, we’re using a smaller, fingerling potato. These are an heirloom variety and contain a few more antioxidants than the traditional white potato. Look for purple varieties to get an even bigger nutrient boost.

This easy weeknight meal is sure to quickly become a family staple in your house!
