The oven-baked salmon recipe is one of the easiest, quick, and healthy meal options for busy weeknights. This recipe turns out to a tasty dinner in less than 20 minutes.

The salmon’s main component is omega-3 fatty acids that usually our body cannot make, but our body needs them, and it plays a critical role in our body.

It is also loaded with good fats and a high protein that helps build your muscles more vital than ever before.

The more simple ingredients you use to make the salmon, the more flavor you will experience.

You can serve steamed or grilled vegetables with salmon to add more fiber to your plate as well as a bunch of vitamins and antioxidants.

Why not try the roasted cauliflower as a side dish or the Quinoa Salad with tomato, Lemon, and Thyme. You will love it!


  • 4 wild-caught salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon zest (optional)
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Chopped fresh herbs such as parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking dish with parchment paper. Let the salmon fillets come to room temperature and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Brush the salmon fillets evenly with olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon zest—place in the baking dish, skin side down. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending upon the thickness of the salmon fillet or until the internal temperature reaches 130 F. Remove from oven and sprinkle fresh herbs and some salt and olive oil if needed. Best served with steamed vegetables.
