Have this perfectly juicy and tender Oven Baked Salmon on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes.  Plus 5 tasty flavour ideas to try!

There are many ways to cook salmon, but one of the easiest methods is to bake it in the oven.  Preparation is as simple as laying the salmon out on a piece of parchment paper, seasoning it with some simple spices or sauces, then putting it into the oven for 20 – 30 minutes to roast.  While the salmon is roasting you can put together a few side dishes like rice, salad or any of your favourite vegetables, and dinner is ready in 30 minutes or less!  Easiest dinner ever.

Oven Baked Salmon

Depending on what flavours you like with your salmon, you can keep it simple with salt & pepper, or a little butter and dill, or smother it with your favourite sauces.

5 Delicious Flavour Ideas for Roasted Salmon:

  • Simple Seasoning: Before roasting, season the salmon generously with salt and pepper. You can also use a seasoning salt.
  • Dill & Butter:  Before roasting, lather each piece of salmon with butter, then add dill. Season with salt, pepper.  After the salmon has roasted, garnish with fresh dill.
  • Sweet & Spicy: Before roasting, brush each piece of salmon generously with a sweet chili sauce.  We like to use Frank’s Red Hot Sweet Chili Sauce.
  • Teriyaki: Before roasting, brush the salmon generously with your favourite teriyaki sauce.
  • Garlic & Dijon:  Mix together 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tsp dijon mustard and 1 clove of garlic. Then before roasting, season the salmon with salt and paper then brush the salmon with the garlic/dijon mixture.
