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.

    Hi Natasha,
    I come from a commercial fishing family and I just wanted you to be aware that Atlantic Salmon is just a sneaky way of selling farmed fish. Atlantic salmon is actually from commercial farms. All the restaurants selling it under the guise of Atlantics Salmon? Yep, farmed. Dye pellets and all that mess. Love your recipes but stay away from that Atlantic stuff. They’re sneaky. Seriously, do some research & check it out. 😉

      I live in Alaska where we take our salmon very seriously. 😊Atlantic Salmon is indeed farmed – not sure how they get away with that. Farmed salmon is not only terrible for you, but threatens the wild salmon population. I agree, steer clear of Farmed &/or “Atlantic” salmon. 😝

    Do you prefer it with parsley?
    Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE parsley especially in soups.
    I’m open to trying it.
    It’s just that usually I use dill with salmon and they are a match made in heaven. Your thoughts? Thanks!

        Thank you! Wanted to let you know the mahi mahi was same thickness as your salmon steak pics, but loins were shorter. I went by your cook time, and it was the *first time* my fish turned out perfect! Moist and flakey. I always have trouble cooking fish, as I seem to overcook. Recipe was excellent. I omitted capers, so made as is except for fish type. I used the frozen mahi from Costco. They are really good. Thanks so much for the tutorial on cooking fish. I will make this again, but use salmon. I served it over fettuccini with a salad, spooned a little sauce over the noodles that was left in pan. A delicious meal. You ROCK!!

    I followed the recipe to the letter (cooking it in the air fryer). My husband and I found this recipe to be very bland. We usually cook salmon on the grill (on a cedar plank with a Tequila Lime rub) – so we may just be used to more smoky, robust flavors. I won’t be making this again, though.

    I was never much of a fish lover until I used this recipe and now I’m a convert. It is absolutely delicious. I usually make a too large portion and make the leftover fish and sauce into a fish pie which is just as tasty.

      Great recipe and tasty. Just for kicks, I added a bit of white wine/vermouth to the marinade and it gave it a zing, probably complimented the dijon which has wine. Enjoy your recipes and we are primarily fish eaters in the house (Alaska).

      Hi Angelina, evoo is best used for salads and cold preparations since it doesn’t have a high smoke point like a light olive oil would. Technically extra virgin will heat up to 400˚F so it should be ok at 400˚F in the oven.

    This has become one of our regular meals. Nice and fresh and easy to make. I usually add washed capers if I have them. I have also started cooking all salmon dishes at a lower 250 degrees for around 25 minutes instead of the higher temps. This makes it so the “perfect” cooking time is about plus or minus two minutes instead of a difficult to hit 20 seconds like it is on higher temps. More consistent finished product for me. Love this recipe! Thanks!

      Hi Dawn, that is what salmon contains, but keep in mind salmon is a healthy kind of cholesterol.

    Delicious! Did mine in the air fryer and it was a huge hit! Simple and fresh marinade. Definitely a keeper this recipe.
