Usually I broil salmon or on the stove/oven combination. This time I decided to bake it completely! Once again this recipe is quick, easy and delicious! We bought our salmon from Costco and then cut it in filets. It was enough for 4 meals each for Andy and I! So it was a great way to meal prep for the week as well!
First I preheated the oven to 425. I also start some rice in the rice cooker. Once the filets were cut, I seasoned with salt, pepper and a variety or seasonings. Some of my go-to and favorites include: old bay, blackened, cajun and dill. I also topped them with some fresh squeezed lemon.
Once they were seasoned, I placed them on a greased baking sheet and popped them in the oven. While they were in the oven, I made some and then made some hot honey to drizzle on top. I baked the salmon for about 15-18 minutes. Baking time will vary based on the size of filets, and how well down you want them to be.
I don’t like to cook them too much, because I like them to be flaky and juicy, not dry. That way they do not dry out when you reheat the meal prep. After 15 minutes, I turn off the oven and then plated all the food before pulling them out of the oven. I topped the salmon with a hot honey drizzle. It all came together for a delicious meal and great leftover meals for the week! How do you like to season and bake your salmon? I’d love to hear your recipes!
