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.

    I had used this recipie twice. It was amazing and super easy. The dijon was subtle and lovely fish was perfect almost no cleanup with tin foil. I didnt have yhe parsley or fresh garlic. Used powder the first time and minced garlic the second the dish was superb and was a five of five without proper ingredients so once get em still a five of five cant go higher well done. Reply

    hey Natasha, can I exclude the olive oil and just make it with the rest of the ingredients? or will it turn out dry? I don’t use any kind of oils right now. I made this recipe many times before adding the oil when I was able to have it and everyone absolutely loved it. I just need to make sure it won’t go dry without it Reply

      Hi Olya, I haven’t tried it without oil so I’m not sure how that would work. I think it’s worth an experiment! Salmon has a good amount of natural oils so that may be sufficient for baking. I’m assuming you are also not using butter? A pat of butter would be nice if that is ok with your diet. Reply

    Made this tonight with jusy a couple modifications and we loved it! Didn’t have any fresh parsley so used a mixture of dried parsley, fresh basil,fresh mint & green onion to top & gatnish. Also used honey mustard dressing as part of the marinade. Wrapped in foil & fixed on the grill for 12 minutes at 375. Had left over dill sauce and toppef it to eat. Delicious and soooo moist!

    I made this wonderful recipe a few days ago, and I make it every few weeks. It is my husband’s favorite meal, along with some rice pilaf and asparagus. This time of year, I always make extra, and use the leftovers for salad the next day. As moist and delicious as it is served straight from the oven, it is even better cold, especially in the summer. Reply

The sauce you put on top makes it so delicious and not fishy at all. I served it with mashed potatoes and green beans just like you have in the picture. Thanks for this great recipe. So glad I came across your blog! Not to mention left overs were just as good today! My next recipe of yours I plan to make is your Golubtsi recipe.

    THIS IS THE BEST SALMON I HAVE EVER HAD! THANK YOU NATASHA! I am a college student and this was not very pricey nor challenging to make. I did want to add that if you choose to use no foil (I thought PAM would suffice instead of foil…..I was wrong) then you can clean your crusty pan ease. All you need to do lay the pan flat, coat it with dish soap, and pour some boiling water in it. I let it sit for a few minutes and the crud came right off for me. Reply

        Hi Barbara, I prefer it warm, but yes it would still taste good cold the next day 🙂 Reply

        Barbara, I actually prefer it cold, but I live in a warm climate. I usually make an extra serving to eat for lunch in a salad the next day. Sometimes I even eat the cold salmon for breakfast! I love this recipe and make it over and over. Reply

    We don’t have salmon now, but we’re trying this out with a plump halibut and we bet it’ll taste delicious as well!:)
    Great job guys!
    We’ll be tweeting the result soon.
    Thank you!

    This recipe has become a regular in our house! Once or twice a week I will make this and my husband devours it (so do I!). Even my picky 1 year old will go to town on it. He’s never refused another bite…who knows how much of this he could eat! Thank you for the best salmon I’ve ever tasted. I tell everyone about this recipe! Reply

      HI Del, I’ve never tried with regular mustard and just browsing the other comments, I have only seen people 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

      • Elena
        October 21, 2017

        Just saw this comment, left by Del. I’m using regular (russian) mustard for this recipe and it just works great. Although, I use slightly less, because it stronger. Natasha, thank you so much for such a great recipe! It’s my family favorite. Reply

    Love this recipe! I’ve made it several times now, and my family always love it. Only change is I wrap each piece individually in foil….helps keep the juices (and flavour) in! Reply

    I LOVED THIS RECIPE
    It was so easy with excellent flavors. I made one change. I added some bread crumbs for a little crunch, about 2 tablespoons. It was thick and a little hard to spread but the taste was great.

    I had been looking for a simple and delicious recipe that I could make for guests. I definitely found it. ❤🌞 Reply

    Would the fish turn out the same if I lined my baking sheet with parchment paper, instead of foil? I’m trying to reduce my aluminum intake but don’t want to spoil the dish. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      July 5, 2016

      Hi Diane, yes it will still taste the same. The only concern with parchment is having it in the oven with too high of heat (fire hazard) but at this baking temperature, If you try it, definitely make sure your paper is not touching the burners. Reply

        Must have missed it, I will watch it and then make it but first I have a question. I need this recipe for only 2 servings, will there be any changes to the sauce that needs to be adjusteded? Reply

          You can definitely cut the marinade in half for just two portions and keep the baking time the same. 🙂 Enjoy! Reply

            Hi again Natasha, I can’t seem to find Olive Oil that’s not extra virgin nor light. Is there another word for it,or can I substitute with something else for it?

            Any high heat oil would work but the healthiest substitute would be avocado oil.

    Thanks for the super awesome recipe Natasha. I added a dash of siracha to the sauce as I had the sweeter honey mustard instead of Dijon and used cilantro instead of Parsley. Served it with garlic mashed potatoes and pan roasted veggies. It was the best tasting Salmon dinner I have had in a very long time. All done in under 30 mins. This is going to be a regular on my weekday dinner menu Reply
