Quick & Easy Baked Salmon Recipe

Cooking a salmon dinner doesn't get much easier than this!  This quick and easy oven baked salmon recipe is flaky, flavorful, and no-fuss by using a simple mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning.

Gather your ingredients: salmon filet(s), salt, pepper, olive oil, Italian seasoning and a lemon.

step 1

Place the filet on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and generously salt and pepper the filet.

step 2

Mix the olive oil, Italian seasoning and juice of half the lemon in a small bowl. Coat the filet.

step 3

Top the filet with thin slices of lemon from the other half of the lemon.

step 4

Bake at 450°F for 15 minutes, or until salmon is 120°F in the thickest part of the salmon, opaque and flaky when pulled apart with a fork.

step 5

Use a reliable meat thermometer to check the temperature. The ThermoWorks Thermapen is my favorite!

pro tip

Serve immediately with your favorite sides, and enjoy!
