Ingredients for Oven Baked Salmon

  • Two garlic cloves
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lemon juice
  • Olive Oil
  • Two large salmon fillets

You will also need some aluminum foil.

Oven Baked Salmon Preparation

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius.

Finely chop your garlic and mix it with at least six tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of salt, pepper, and basil.  Add about a tablespoon of parsley and anywhere between one and three tablespoons of lemon juice.

Put your fillets onto a large piece of aluminum foil and pour in the mixture of oil, garlic, and spices.

You should bake them until they can easily flake when pressed with a fork.  Properly baking salmon usually takes between thirty five and forty five minutes.

Tips for Making Oven Baked Salmon

  • You can put the foiled up salmon fillets on a baking sheet, but to avoid making a mess of your oven I’d recommend using a casserole dish.
  • You can use lime instead of lemon. It’s a lighter citrus flavor and a good alternative. (Be sure you don’t waste any lime juice.)
