Here's our instructions for 2 ways to bake fresh Salmon.
Baked Salmon on a sheet pan:
- Rest salmon. Place salmon on the counter and allow it to rest for 20-30 minutes. Pat with a paper towel.
- Place on sheet-pan. Lightly spray pan with non-stick cooking spray and place fillet on top, skin side down.
- Add seasonings. Choose from garlic-butter, lemon-dill, or cajun seasonings.
- Bake salmon at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes depending on thickness of salmon. Aim for no more than 140º F as the salmon will continue to cook after removing it from the oven. Or, use a fork to gently pull back on a section in the thickest part of the filet. The salmon should flake away easily and look opaque.
