Baked Salmon with Fresh Herbs

Salmon is one of my favorite fish, and nothing is quicker and easier than roasting a side of salmon in the oven. I slice some lemons and add a few sprigs of herbs such as parsley or chives, then lay the salmon on top, skin side down.

This is easy enough for weeknight cooking, but also elegant enough to add to your holiday table. The whole dish takes under 25 minutes, and leftovers are great over salad such as this Arugula Salmon Salad with Capers and Shaved Parmesan, a favorite!

  1. Made this tonight for supper with fresh corn and asparagus.  Simple, easy, quick.  Made one small change: substituted fresh green onions for the chives.

  2. I will be making this for the second time because the first time was a hit! Unfortunately, I omitted the dill and chives because the wife doesn’t like dill and I couldn’t find chives, but don’t let that deter you from using these delicious herbs! I love my salmon wet, so I lowered the oven temp to around 375 for 15 minutes – just enough so that the ends were cooked through but the thickest parts were more rare. Roasted this with seasoned asparagus thrown in and lots of lemon. Thank you!

  3. Easy and delicious! I roasted some broccoli in the same sheet pan to make it a one pan meal.

  4. This was so easy and delicious. Thank you!

  5. is soo yummy …

  6. Well, Carol, I’m a man, however, I think that even I could follow this recipe. oNE THING IS FOR SURE, I AM GOING TO AT LEAST GIVE IT MY BEST SHOT HAHA. You see, when I was 8-12 years old, I didn’t enjoy the taste of any fish, and because I was practically force fed it. Then, in later life, I had this tendency to avoid eating it.

    However, over the last 6-months, I have begun to eat it again and salmon is rapidly becoming a favorite of mine. Thus, I am going to try this. 🙂

    Thanks for helping me discover this dish.

  8. I definitely plan to make this. I have been looking for a good simple salmon recipe that I can make on busy weeknights. By the way, what brand is that baking dish? I see it a lot in your recipes and have always wanted to know.
