Easy Oven Baked Salmon

A friend of mine asked me to share how I prepare my salmon in the oven.  I love making salmon for dinner because it's tasty and really easy to make!  I usually pair it with veggies but it can also be served with pasta, rice or anything really. What You Need:

  • Oven
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Cookie sheet or similar baking pan
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Salmon Filet
  • Butter or Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Other spices (depending on your taste) - I use Oregano and Lemon Pepper on mine

How To Prepare Your Salmon:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Cover baking sheet with foil and grease with cooking spray
  • Season salmon with lemon pepper, oregano, salt and pepper
  • Top with a little bit of butter to keep moist - you can use olive oil instead
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes. My terrible apartment oven overheats so you may need to bake for 10-12.

Tip: I use foil on my cookie sheet to make cleanup really easy. I'm a married, working gal, I don't have time to scrub pots and pans all night!
