Easy Baked Salmon

Sharing is caring!

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.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 salmon filet (14-16 oz)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Blend together butter, brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, oil and ginger in a saucepan over low heat until blended and sugar is melted.
    In the meantime, prepare a baking pan by lining with foil.  Place salmon filet skin side down on foil. If salmon has bones, you can debone before or after cooking.
    Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper and brush on sauce. Bake uncovered at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
     Cooking time varies depending on the thickness.  Be sure to test before pulling it out of the oven. Fish should flake easily with a fork.

That looks delicious girl! I love salmon too. I broil it. I posted a Salmon salad once comment how I hate to make it because it stinks up the house. Someone replied to broil it doesn't stink up the house that way. Never thought to use ginger - I'm not good at knowing what seasonings are for. I'll try this. Stopping by from Divatude giving you a shout out ;-)
