Oven Baked Salmon Recipe with Lemon and Garlic Butter

Oven baked salmon with Lemon and Garlic Butter is my go-to recipe for those times when I just want a delicious piece of fish without re-inventing the wheel. I created this recipe with ingredients most of us already have on hand to make it accessible for those of us who don’t always have time to shop for specialty ingredients.

Salmon is one of those chameleon-like foods that changes it’s taste depending on the ingredients it is paired with. Besides the huge nutritional benefits we get from adding salmon to our diets, the endless flavor profile this fish has offers when combined with the right ingredients makes it a favorite for salmon lovers alike.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In small saucepan over medium heat, combine the lemon juice an minced garlic. Saute until lemon juice is reduced to 1 tablespoon. Add in butter, stirring until melted and combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Place salmon filet in tin foil large enough to seal fish inside. Set foil with fish on broiling pan and pour butter sauce over filet to cover evenly. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and red pepper. Seal tin foil so all sides are sealed.
  4. Bake salmon for 12-15 minutes or until fish is firm. Open the foil and allow and change heat to broil. Broil filet for 2-3 minutes making sure fish does not burn.
  5. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
