Here’s a quick, easy and healthy dinner idea: One-Pan Salmon with Green Asparagus. I seasoned the salmon filets and asparagus with garlic and lemon butter. The whole dinner is ready in less than 20 minutes!

Salmon baked in the oven

This is one of my favorite ways to cook salmon: oven-baked. To do this, I simply place my salmon filets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or greased in advance. Sometimes I place my salmon filets in a glass dish instead of on the baking-sheet.

Finally, I add either a drizzle of olive oil or a bit of butter. For the seasoning, I vary according to the recipe: slice of lemon, thyme, rosemary, a dash of soy sauce! You can vary according to your taste.

The best thing about baking in the oven is that the salmon stays intact, so you don’t have to break it up like you sometimes do in the pan. In addition, it allows you to cook a side dish in the oven at the same time, thus saving time.

How long does salmon cook in the oven?

The ideal temperature for baking a salmon steak is 175°C (350°C): the oven must be hot, but too hot or the salmon will become too dry.

The cooking time depends on the size and thickness of your salmon. For a 150-200 g salmon steak about 2-3 centimeters thick, the ideal cooking time is 10 minutes for a slightly pink salmon in the middle and 13-15 minutes for a well-cooked salmon.

For the skin, you can put the salmon on the skin side, as in my photo below, or the skin side up. This will crisp up the skin of the salmon.
