how to bake salmon in the oven

ready in 25 minutes

Aside from the herbs and spices like paprika, cayenne pepper, thyme and basil, among others, this Oven Baked Salmon is doused with butter and also the vibrant tang of lemon.

That lemony kick is a must on most of my savory dishes especially when dealing with meat and even with my sweet treats. I’m down for anything with lemons. Seriously!

The thing with using lemons is that they also help achieve a moist flaky salmon inside and out. A beautiful and easy perfect weeknight go-to meal or midweek fancy date night protein.

This easy salmon dish doesn’t take that long in the oven. Simply bake these salmon in a preheated oven at 400F for about 10-15 minutes. Tasty and healthy dinner in no time!

Take note though that cooking times must be adjusted depending on the thickness of the salmon cut. You can use a thermometer to check or use fork testing. 

When the thickest part of the salmon is easily flaked with a fork, the salmon is perfectly cooked. Garnish immediately with lemon slices.
