Quick and easy salmon baked with garlic, dried herbs, and lemon juice. It takes less than 15 minutes to bake and when it’s done, you’ll have a flaky, tasty fish dish!
Summer is a busy time of year. From visits from out-of-towners to fun-filled days outside, summer days just seem longer and busier. When it comes to simple throw together meals, salmon is a go-to dish. When it’s baked right, this healthy dish is creamy, rich, and wonderfully flaky.
Garlic Herb Baked Salmon takes only 30 minutes to prepare and it is truly tasty. With a mix of garlic, parsley, oregano, dill, paprika, and lemon, this dish is packed with flavour. Each bite bursts with the rich flavours of lemon, garlic, and herb. Yum!
You don’t need to add any oil to this fish dish. When salmon is baked right – at a high temperature for a short time – it has enough of its own natural oils to stay perfectly moist and delicious. After about 10 minutes in the oven, Garlic Herb Baked Salmon should begin to flake easily with a fork. If you prefer a more well-done fillet, bake it for another minute or two. Either way, within no time, dinner is served!
The simple marinade is so easy to throw together. With a mix of a few ingredients, you can create one crowd-pleasing meal. To make the cleanup a little easier, I like to marinade the fish in the container it comes it.
After slicing the salmon into pieces, you can place the salmon back in its store-bought container and pour the marinade on top. Once the marinade covers all of the fish, you can seal the container with plastic wrap and let the marinade do its magic. Within 20 minutes, the flavours immerse through the salmon, creating a wonderfully even flavour.
After a few minutes in the oven, the dish is done. You can serve Garlic Herb Baked Salmon with rice, potatoes, or salad. Garlic Herb Baked Salmon makes a tasty lunch or dinner. And you’ll love how easy this is to make and clean up.
Now, the question is, what are you making for dinner?
