This easy baked salmon recipe is one I have been making for years. I prefer to bake salmon in the oven, so that it does not leave a fish aroma in the kitchen. Sometimes we grill it, but it has been very chilly (for us) here in California, so this is a great way to prepare salmon in the oven.
My midwest and eastern friends laugh at me because what we call cold here, is t-shirt weather for a lot of folks. Here is how I prepare mine in the oven.
This baked salmon recipe goes well with vegetables, rice and noodles as a side dish. You may need to adjust the cooking time basked on the thickness of your salmon steak. This recipe adds a nice mildly sweet mustard glaze and is a great meatless option. Salmon is a favorite dish of both my kids, and so we make this often.
Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper and brush on sauce. Bake uncovered at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
So delicious with the glaze. We make this over and over again. These photos don't do it justice but I encourage you to try it.
