Consider this. I outrageously love salmon. Enough that I’ve said a couple of times so anyone can hear that if I needed to pick one sort of creature put together protein to live with respect to for the remainder of my life, it would be salmon. I make a ton of chicken dishes, and I can take care of a thick, succulent steak like it’s no one’s business, however assuming it at any point comes directly down to it I’m picking salmon.

I can’t say I have a ton to say about this salmon, then again, actually it is by and large the thing I’m calling it: Easy. Sound. Prepared. Indeed, and Salmon (obviously). However, there truly couldn’t be a more straightforward formula for baking up the absolute best, lemony, garlicky salmon each and every time. I have heaps of tremendously famous salmon plans here on Creme de la Crumb, from sweet and fiery Thai-enlivened, to shrimp-covered, and barbecued in a foil load with asparagus, however it is about time I gave you this very basic, clear, no-stunts just treats Easy Healthy Baked Salmon.

The Best Temperature for Baking Salmon

Oven baked salmon on a rimmed baking sheet is cooked all the way through when an internal temperature reaches 110 to 140 degrees in the center of the thickest part of the meat. About four to six minutes per side is usually enough baking or grilling to reach this temperature. Salmon can be served medium-rare to medium well-done.

Tips for Perfectly Baked Salmon

  • Make sure you don’t cook oven baked salmon it at too high or too low of a temperature or it’ll dry out. You can cover the salmon while it cooks to ensure it remains moist.
  • If you keep the salmon skin on, that can also help make a natural barrier between the salmon and the heat source/dish to help keep the moisture in the salmon.
  • Cooking at a gentle, low heat is the best way to bake salmon every time and keeps it from drying out as well.
