How do you bake salmon?

Wrapping salmon in foil for baking is an easy, common method. The foil traps steam and cooks the salmon quickly and evenly without drying it out.

I like to lay salmon on sliced lemons and top it with fresh herbs for extra flavor all around. And when the salmon is almost done, I open the foil and broil the top for a sweet and sticky glaze.

How long should you cook salmon in the oven?

If you’re wrapping salmon in foil, it’s done in about 12 to 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven.

Consider serving this high-protein, delicious fish on a bed of rice veggies for a complete meal! It’s pretty enough for a dinner party but quick enough for your busiest weeknights.
