We have had such a healthy and thriving King Salmon season this year! The season will continue on until late fall, and if you’re looking for an easy, tasty meal for your family, check out this recipe for a delicious King Salmon bake that’s one of our favorite go-to’s!
This is a great recipe that takes less than 15 minutes to make from start to finish, and only requires a handful of ingredients – your king salmon, seasoning like salt and pepper, garlic if it suits, and your favorite oil. We recommend around 1/2 lb serving per person, so arrange your salmon portions accordingly for baking.
To help with even cooking, let your fresh salmon fillets rest on the counter for about 15 minutes, then blot dry.
Set the oven to 450*F as you prep the fillets.
Put the salmon fillets skin side down on a foil covered baking sheet, brush all sides with oil (except skin), season with salt, pepper, and dry herbs.
Bake at 450*F for around 4-6 minutes per half inch of thickness. The simple fork-test method works as well to check for flakiness and opaque flesh.
Once baked, remove from oven, transfer to a clean serving plate, squeeze a bit of lemon and dress with other fresh herbs over the top and… voilá! An easy delicious meal for the family to enjoy!
