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.

    Since the recipe was first published in 2012, this is the only way I cook salmon, and we eat it often. Now that summer is approaching, be aware that this salmon is even more delicious served cold, as part of a salad. I make a Nicoise-type salad with salmon and it is scrumptious. Thanks again, Natasha! Reply

    June 5, 2019

    OK …not a five… however… I did like the marinade.

    When you cook Salmon, on a wire rack, perhaps leaving the skin on is desirable. On the other hand, I remove the skin as it tends to change the taste of the meat. If I bake the Salmon I remove the skin. I’ve also found that Salmon sliced and diced can be quickly cooked in Olive oil in a skillet … never dry, but almost as good as Sashimi, raw Salmon. Reply

    • Natasha
      June 5, 2019

      Hi Robert, I haven’t noticed a difference in flavor when the skin is removed, but if removing the skin, it does bake up slightly faster. I wonder if maybe that was the culprit. Glad you enjoyed the marinade! Reply

    This is amazing! Have made it twice and hubby and I love it. I made small adjustments: cut the salt in half (hubby and I don’t use a lot of salt in our cooking) and used dry parsley as I didn’t have fresh handy.

    Small (hopefully) request: could you upload or link your recipes to myfitnesspal.com somehow? For some reason, I couldn’t find your recipe nutritional information linked there and am tracking my calories so this would be helpful for an accurate capture.

I did make a small change for the last two times that I will continue to do: instead of Dijon mustard, I used honey mustard.

    This is my go-to salmon recipe – I’ve made it dozens of times & it never disappoints – thank you, Natasha! One small suggestion, if you don’t mind: adding the salt to the dijon mix may not be necessary. Mustard & salmon can be salty, & the lemon juice & garlic flavor are rich enough to mask the need for salt. I’ve never added salt to this & I love it! Reply

      Hi Yelena, I would use butter instead or avocado oil. Canola will work as well. Reply

    This recipe is a winner. I substituted fresh dill because we had no parsley and it was amazing.
    I steamed pea pods in foil with the salmon while it cooked. It was a great dinner! Reply

    I made this recipe yesterday and it was so flavourful, with flavours exploding in my mouth.

    We live in a condo and today a neighbour asked me what I was cooking last night. She walked by our door and noted the delicious smell. She now has your blog address!

    BTW I am a new subscriber and can’t wait to try more of your appealing recipes.

    You asked how we cook our salmon… I usually cook mine with a mixture of fresh orange and lemon peel, with a bit of salt and a bit more pepper. Once cooked, I take the hot dish out of the oven and pour some fresh lemon juice, mixed with white wine vinegar. It sizzles and forms a nice glaze. Et voila! Reply

      Hi Olga, I haven’t tried substituting, but just browsing the other comments, people have reported using grainy mustard, sweet mustard, horseradish mustard and some reported great results without mustard but I wonder if regular mustard will be too strong in flavor – maybe cut it down if using regular mustard. Reply

      • Olga
        February 28, 2018

        Thanks, what I did was used regular mustard and added mayo to it cuz I didn’t want it to be so strong. It tasted amazing!!! My husband went back for 3rds 😁 Love this recipe! ThAnk you! Reply

    Well I planned on doing this with Salmon but when I opened my salmon it just smelled to fishy. I already prepared the ingredients in a bowl so I improvised. I had some chicken tenderloins, so it was chicken with garlic and dejon instead. It still came out fabulous. I can’t wait to try it again with salmon. Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    This recipe looks amazing, and I’m planning it for a light dinner on New Year’s Day for a small family gathering. This may be a silly question, but I’m curious about why you suggest to not use extra virgin olive oil.

    I’m just now discovering your website and will be a frequent visitor! Thank you for your great work. Reply

      Hi David, I’m so glad you are enjoying our blog!! 🙂 Extra virgin olive oil has a low smoke point so it is best used on salads and not ideal for high heat cooking. Extra virgin can cause your oven to get smoky at high heat. Reply
