How to bake salmon

How to bake salmon in this recipe? Salmon and vegetables are ready in about 15 minutes–more or less a couple of minutes, depending on your doneness preference– with a truck-load of flavors.

Simply season salmon with salt and pepper. Transfer salmon fillets on the sheet pan and arrange vegetables around. Drizzle with the sauce and bake for 15 minutes in the oven at 425ºF (220ºC).

What type of salmon is best for baking?

Any of these types of salmon will work with this salmon sheet pan recipe: Atlantic Salmon, Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, or King Salmon. Overall, wild-caught salmon (not farmed) is always better if you have the choice at your grocery store.

Tips for sheet pan salmon recipe

  • Salmon already has a high-fat content and can cook in its own fat just fine if you don’t want to add all the oil. You can decrease the oil back to just 4 tablespoons and your salmon will still taste amazing!
  • Make sure to leave the skin on and bake the salmon skin-side down. The skin creates a separation between the sheet pan and the salmon flesh.
  • Pat the salmon dry before adding salt and pepper. This will help the seasoning to stick onto salmon.

Directions

1. To bake the sheet-pan salmon recipe: Preheat your oven to 425ºF (220ºC). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in the middle of the sheet pan.

2. Boil the quartered potatoes in salted water for 8 minutes. This will ensure potatoes are roasted evenly.

3. In the meantime, in a small bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, dill, and red chili pepper flakes.

4. Drain potatoes and arrange around the salmon on the sheet pan. Add the zucchini slices on the side and sprinkle the veggies with salt and pepper.

5. Drizzle generously the salmon fillets with the mixture and transfer the sheet pan to your oven and bake the salmon for 15 minutes, until salmon is cooked through and the veggies are crisp-tender.

6. Remove the baked salmon sheet pan from the oven and serve the baked salmon sheet pan immediately from the sheet pan, with more sauce on the side. Enjoy!
