This Is One EASY Recipe!

The process for making this salmon dish is extremely SIMPLE. A garlic, butter, lemon juice and herb mixture is prepared, and then salmon fillets are topped with it. Salmon goes into the oven where it is baked, and then it is DONE!  How’s THAT for EASY??? It’s quick and it tastes GOOD. From start to finish, it took under 20 minutes, which is perfect for crazy busy days!

How To Make Garlic Herb Baked Salmon

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.  Place the melted butter, garlic, parsley, salt, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and black pepper in a small bowl. Give it a good stir to fully combine ingredients. Now the sauce is READY! Hope you didn’t break a sweat doing all that hard work- wink, wink!

Butter, lemon juice, herbs and spices make up a sauce for the seafood.

Place the salmon fillets onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving a bit of space between each fillet. The parchment paper helps cut down on the cleanup once the salmon is done. Use a spoon and divide the garlic herb sauce evenly between salmon fillets, covering the top and sides of the fish.

Salmon fillets are covered with the lemon butter herb sauce before baking.

 Time To Finish The Garlic Herb Baked Salmon

Bake the salmon in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from oven, once done, and transfer fillets to individual plates.

Garlic Herb Baked Salmon only takes 12 minutes to cook in the oven!

Garnish And Serve The Garlic Herb Baked Salmon

Garnish each piece of salmon with a lemon wedge and serve immediately with your favorite side dish.  I served my garlic herb baked salmon on a bed of cooked sesame ginger slaw,  with green beans (from our garden) and steamed rice.

If you want, you can also drizzle the salmon with any leftover garlic herb mixture that remains on the baking sheet. Just spoon it up, and drizzle it on the fish.
