How to bake salmon

  1. On a large piece of foil, place lemon slices and fresh dill with the entire salmon fillet.
  2. Sprinkle with garlic butter. Fold and seal the foil in a tent bag and bake.
  3. When done, open the foil and place it under the broiler to brown the top.

Salmon fillet is best when baked with the skin on for optimal flavor and to help retain moisture. It also ensures that the entire steak is held together when baking and smoothing. The meat is easily detached from the skin with a fork.

How long to bake salmon

Like any fish, salmon is cooked quickly in a preheated oven. In general, most ovens take about 15 minutes to preheat to 350 ° F, or 20 minutes to reach 400 ° F.

To cook a 3 pound salmon fillet in foil:

  • 350 ° F: 20-25 minutes.
  • 400 ° F: 15-20 minutes
  • 450 ° F: 12-15 minutes

The time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillet. Be sure to check it for cooking without overcooking, it should easily crumble with a fork.

Served with fondant potatoes, roasted asparagus, or glazed carrots, a baked salmon dinner is an impressive but simple presentation for guests or special dinners with the family.

Leftovers

This recipe is so delicious that I doubt there are any leftovers! They can be gently reheated but are also great in salmon pasta or salmon patties!

  • To reheat: Store baked salmon scraps in a tightly closed container in the refrigerator for up to four days. Reheat in a pan covered with aluminum foil in the oven.
  • Freeze: wrap individual slices in parchment paper and stack in freezer bags. Squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing. The salmon will stay that way for up to six months. Thaw in the refrigerator before heating, or make a delicious cold salmon salad!
