- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet or in a non-stick pan with an oven-proof handle. Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with the Toasted Almond Parsley Salad and squash, if desired.
Toasted Almond Parsley Salad:
- Mince the shallot and add to a small bowl. Pour the vinegar over the shallots and add a pinch of salt. Let sit for 30 minutes.
- Roughly chop the capers, parsley and almonds and add to the shallots. Add the olive oil, tasting as you go. Mix again and adjust the seasonings.

Garlic butter smothered salmon is a given. It’s possibly one of the most amazing, delicious ways to eat a juicy piece of salmon and gets cooked twice a week in this house. It’s been a while since we gave you salmon and it’s time.
Normally you may opt for pan seared salmon for a guaranteed crisp exterior with a fork tender interior. Our baked salmon recipe delivers soft, juicy and tender salmon on the inside with charred crisp edges. A delicious restaurant-quality dinner!
What you will love the most about this Garlic Butter Baked Salmon recipe is that you can prepare it all on just the one pan. Perfect to get your sides cooked along side your main, especially when you need something quick to throw together. Plus an incredible garlic butter sauce inspired by our Scampi.
how to make garlic butter baked salmon
This really is an incredibly easy recipe with only 4 main steps:
- Bake your potatoes first as salmon needs less time in the oven. This way you’re guaranteed the potatoes will be cooked through when it’s all finished. I used fingerling potatoes in this recipe because we LOVE the flavour of them! You an also use Yukon golds or halved baby potatoes.
- Once your potatoes are done, push them to the side and pile on your asparagus and salmon pieces.
- Pour on all of your flavours.
- Prepare an amazing garlic butter sauce with a hint of white wine (optional) and lemon juice.
how to make garlic butter sauce
- Mince your garlic cloves.
- Rub the minced garlic all over your salmon fillets.
- Combine lemon juice with melted butter and pour it all over your salmon and asparagus.
If you’re missing an ingredient, don’t worry! This recipe is versatile, use what you have in hand. No butter? Use olive oil. Don’t like asparagus? Use broccoli.

how long to bake salmon
Salmon only needs 8-10 minutes cooking time in a hot, preheated oven (400°F or 200°C). I broil/grill ours in the last 2 minutes of cook time to get those crispy, golden charred edges.
wine suggestion for baked salmon
I love a chilled glass of white wine with my salmon. We enjoyed a glass or two of chilled Moscato with this! If you’re not a fan of sweet wines, try a good Pinot Gris or Sav Blanc.
Tip: Chill your wine glasses in the freezer for about 30 minutes to keep your wine cool!
how to store cooked salmon
Salmon will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator if stored properly.
