Baked Salmon with Garlic and Dijon

Baked Salmon is juicy and flaky with a flavorful garlic, dijon, lemon glaze. We used the same marinade on our succulent Broiled Lobster Tails. Find out why this is one of the most popular baked salmon recipes around!

When it comes to parties and entertaining, this 20-minute roasted salmon is one of our go-to seafood recipes along with Shrimp Scampi, the best Fish Tacos, and Creamy Shrimp Pasta. P.S. We included air fryer instructions which cuts the bake time in half.

The Best Salmon Marinade:

You don’t need any fancy ingredients to make the best baked salmon. This is a healthy salmon marinade, but is definitely not lacking in flavor. The best part is – there is no marinating required! All you need is:

  • Dijon mustard
  • Fresh lemon juice (not from concentrate)
  • Parsley
  • Plenty of pressed garlic
  • Pantry Basics: olive oil, salt and pepper

Ingredients for salmon marinade with lemon, dijon mustard, parsley, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper

I am convinced this is the best marinade for seafood. It works on shrimp, lobster, fancy salmon skewers and all kinds of fish (we also snuck it onto these chicken legs and didn’t regret it for a second)! It’s fresh, vibrant and easy; simply combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, spread it over the salmon filets and bake.

How Long to Bake Salmon:

This proven roasting method always produces excellent results. Baking the salmon at a high temperature quickly roasts the exterior and seals in the natural juiciness of the salmon, making it flaky, tender and moist.

  • Roast at 450˚F for 12 -15 minutes
  • Salmon internal temperature should reach 145˚F (remove it from the oven at 140˚F since the temperature will continue to rise as it rests).

The Best Types of Salmon:

Wild caught salmon (not farmed) is best. Any of these types of salmon will work: Atlantic Salmon, Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, or King Salmon.

Since salmon filets can vary in size, Keep an eye on the salmon towards the end since a thinner fillet will roast faster and a thicker filet such as a fattier farmed salmon, or a thick wild King salmon fillet may take longer to roast.

How to Make Air Fryer Salmon:

Place salmon on the wire basket, skin-side-down, and keeping it spaced just so the pieces are not touching. Air Fry at 450˚F for 5-7 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon. As usual, there is no need to preheat the air fryer. I

love how the top becomes slightly caramelized in an airfryer – it is my new favorite way to make “bake” salmon. Read more about our air fryer here.

    Really good! My daughter found it a little too tart for her taste with the lemon, but I thought it was great. It definitely took longer to cook than the recipe stated, though, so I guess my pieces were thicker.

    Another great and simple recipe. The fish is so moist–perhaps too most for my taste. I lower the oven rack to low and broil the salmon which still comes out juicy without being wet.
    This marinate is just perfect! Thanks again Natasha.

    The wife absolutely loved this one and thinks I’m a salmon God.

    I used this recipe with a 2.65 lb. farmed salmon filet from Costco cut into 6 pieces, and doubled the marinade ingredients. Wow is it good, and so easy.

    Also, I have to confess I often don’t have the patience for fresh garlic and used minced garlic from a jar for this one, and it still tasted great.

I found your recipe and made it today because I have never in my life cooked salmon…well he couldn’t stop raving about how delicious it was. He was eating it as he was putting the leftovers away LOL. He even said the lemon slices on the fish were fantastic. I’ll take his word for it as I had chicken 🙂

    Hi Natasha, I’ve made a variation of this for many years. I stir the mustard, lemon and oil together briskly to create an emulsion. Sometimes I’ll use less lemon juice and add a little white wine. The sauce forms a nice coating as the salmon bakes. I’ll be trying your recipe as well.

      October 12, 2020

      Hi Kayla, It helps to thaw the salmon in the fridge and make sure it’s fully thawed before cooking. I haven’t tried baking a fully frozen salmon but even partially frozen since it burns at really high temperatures and can become smoky.

Wild caught Alaskan salmon is not only so much more delicious and healthier than farmed, but the fishery is carefully managed for sustainability. Support our local fishermen and buy wild-caught!

        I sometimes get the salmon ready for the oven a half hour or so before roasting, and let it “marinate” while the oven is heating. I do think that improves the flavor.

    I made this recipe In the air fryer tonight and it was delicious! My husband said it was “restaurant quality”, my 5 year old son asked me to make it again tomorrow night and my 9 month old daughter licked her tray clean!! I’ve never had salmon taste this moist and delicious. Thank you!!

      Hi Agnes, I haven’t tested that but one of my readers wrote in with the following “I absolutely love salmon, and it’s so good for you, especially the Sockeye salmon! I can’t wait to try your recipe. I often make salmon on the grill, in heavy-duty foil with lots of fresh veggies on top of it, drizzled with EV Olive Oil. It’s also delicious” I hope that helps.

    I love so many of your recipes Natasha but our very favourite is this lemon salmon. It is just delicious. 12 minutes in the air fryer is perfect for my family. Our second fav is the banana bread. That doesnt last long in my house. Thank you for your delicious recipes.

    I just made this. The suggested cooking time of 12-15 minutes is way too long. I prefer my salmon medium rare, I baked it for 8 minutes and its cooked all the way through, but very moist.

    Way too much garlic. You end up with garlic sewer breath. Powdered garlic would be a better choice, because the minced garlic does not cook down. Instead, just mix a few tablespoons of Dijon mustard with some oil, honey, salt and pepper and spread it over the salmon. SO much better.

    Wow delicious and easy! Salmon had the perfect texture, and I’m glad I didn’t have to spend time mincing any garlic. Will definitely make this again.

    One question though: Do the nutrition facts shown reflect the entire recipe (1.5 pounds salmon)? Or are they for one serving size? If the latter, how many pounds of salmon is considered one serving? Thank you

    First, I want to say that I tried a similar recipe a year ago with the lobster tails and it was a hit. I was looking for a recipe for salmon and did not realize that I made something like this sauce before!! The salmon was a amazing but it was a little too bland but that was my fault as I did not expand the sauce to fit the amount of salmon that I had ( 8 pieces instead of 4). Overall, it was still a hit! I love your recipes!

      Hi Manon, It helps to thaw the salmon in the fridge and make sure it’s fully thawed before cooking. I haven’t tried baking a fully frozen salmon but even partially frozen since it burns at really high temperatures and can become smoky.

      Hi Carolyn, Extra virgin olive oil has a low smoke point so it is best used on salads and not ideal for high heat cooking. It can cause your oven to get smoky at high heat.
