Salmon is one of my favorite fishes to cook because it is so easy and forgiving. Salmon is great fried, sauteed, seared, grilled – and baked! 

Baking salmon can be as easy as toss it in the oven and open it up to a ton of rich, delicious salmon flavor – but there are a couple tips to make sure you know how to bake salmon that tastes like it’s from your favorite restaurant!

  •  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, combine dehydrated garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, caraway seeds and fennel seeds and stir to combine.
  • Generously sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper and press skinless side into the “everything” seasoning mixture to coat.
  • Heat oil in a large oven-safe heavy pan (I prefer mineral pans) over medium-high heat. Flip. 
  • Add salmon seed-side down and sear 3-4 minutes. Flip salmon. 
  • Transfer pan with everything salmon into oven and cook 6-8 minutes, until fish is fully cooked.
  • Serve immediately.

Tips and Tricks For Perfect Salmon & FAQs

Follow these tips for how to bake salmon for a perfect fish dinner anytime:

I prefer salmon that has been pre-seared in a heavy pan and a little bit of oil before baking for the best results.

Pre-searing the top (skinless) side of salmon gives the top a chance to crisp up and caramelize before adding to the oven to cook through. 

Cover with Foil. To speed up cooking without drying out your fish, cover with foil when baking. 

Don’t Overcook. Salmon can be tough and dry when overcooked. Many people overcook fish in hopes of removing the fishy flavor – but overcooked fish is tough, dry, and often tastes much fishier. For the best clean flavor for your fish, resist the urge to overcook. Salmon is cooked at 145 degrees internal temperature.

How to cut down fishy smells: Use fresh fish for less smell. The oven will help absorb some of the fishy smells and fish releases less of them when roasted in the oven. Citrus helps diffuse fishy smells, and adds a bit of zip to your salmon’s flavor. 

Keep your fish from sticking to the pan: Heat a heavy pan to a high heat – the hotter the pan when adding the salmon, the less likely it will stick! Use a nonstick, oven-safe pan – I prefer mineral pans, ceramic coated pans, or well seasoned cast iron pans. 

How to tell when salmon is cooked: Salmon should be opaque outside and slightly translucent inside to be cooked perfectly. To ensure salmon is cooked through, watch the sides of the fish, especially on the fatter side of your filet, to see when the middle looks white. When salmon is firmed up, but before it releases it’s fat (the white dots that accumulate on salmon when cooked over), salmon is cooked through. If salmon is flaky, it’s likely overcooked and dried out. Instead, salmon should give way and pull apart into pieces when you press the knife into it.

FAQs

When is salmon done?

Salmon is done when meat is opaque and firm, and the meat has reached 125 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.

Can salmon be raw in the middle?

Some people like to eat salmon medium rare, much like a steak, with a redder middle. Be sure to sear salmon well on the outside, though all food that is undercooked does contain some risk.

How can I store this recipe?

Salmon can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days, or frozen for up to four months.

Can I use store-bought seasoning?

Of course! We love using store-bought everything bagel seasoning or mixing our own. Use whatever you have on hand.

  1. How long would you bake this only? Cooking for a large group and unable to fit that many lbs of salmon in a pan or cook it on the stovetop efficiently. Thanks in advance!

    1. The best way to make this for a large group is to slice it into filets, season them then place the filets with a little space between them on a sheet pan/2 sheet pans and bake them at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes (just skip the searing). Test for doneness before removing them then let it sit a few minutes before enjoying!

  2. It came out excellent. It just needed a little bit longer to get a nice sear on the top – perhaps that was because I used a cast-iron pan with peanut oil – but the end result was perfect. Thank you!

  3. I never cooked salmon before and this was a wonderful experience with an exquisite result!! My husband thinks I’m a wizard! Thank you for the explanations and ease to follow the recipe.Lo

  4. I made this last night and it was AMAZING! I invited my neighbor over and we couldn’t get over how delicious this was and how much it tasted like restaurant quality! Thank you so much for your tips! After we seared it in olive oil in a cast iron pan, I did transfer it to a foil lined baking sheet and then tented it with foil because I had some fairly thick pieces. Cooked at 400 for 7 minutes and IT WAS HEAVEN! Served with lemony kale, fresh blueberries, and garlic parmesan cauliflower mashed potatoes!

  5. OH MY LORDY!!!! You don’t even KNOW how much I LOVE EVERYTHING spice! I seriously want it on EVERYTHING! This salmon is going on my weekly meal plan!
