Baked Salmon Recipe
The flavours in this salmon recipe are absolutely incredible. A one tray meal to feed a hungry hoard without any stove top to scrub or pans to wash. Can I get an AMEN?
Plus, the added bonus of baking it WITH all of your desired vegetables adds to the convenience of a one pan meal without worrying about other pans all over the place, boiling over and over cooking your veggies…or your salmon.
How To Bake Salmon On One Pan
What I love most (and I’m sure you will too), is there’s no need for marinading. The flavours are so intense, they are perfect for coating, baking and eating. Smothered with so.much.flavour with only 2 MAIN flavour ingredients:
- Lemon juice.
From there you can go to town with seasonings: as much salt and pepper as you like with the added flavour subtleness of parsley. Then bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.

One Pan Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon + Asparagus
- 4 - 6 (6 oz or 170 g) salmon fillets, skin removed
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
- 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Olive oil cooking spray
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt (or sea salt flakes)
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 4 bunches asparagus (24 spears), woody ends removed
- 1 lemon , sliced to garnish
- 1/3 cup beans/peas or any other greens
- Preheat oven broiler (or grill) to high heat. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil. Arrange oven shelf to the second top shelf (about 8-inches from the heat element).
- Place the salmon on a large baking tray. Rub each fillet evenly with the garlic and parsley to evenly coat; pour over the lemon juice. Spray with a light coating of olive oil spray and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the asparagus and greens around the salmon in a single layer, and place the lemon slices over the top.
- Broil (or grill) for 8-10 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through to your liking (we find 8 minutes is perfect if the oven is hot).
- Serve with the asparagus and beans/peas and these Crispy Smashed Potatoes!

Fantastic. Followed recipe closely, less salmon as I feed only 2 people, and had no asparagus. Will make it again.
This was very yummy. I made it in my toaster oven because it’s summer and I only wanted a small portion. The salmon was a thin piece so it cooked before the asparagus but that was fine, it was till very moist and delicious. I took it out and cooked the asparagus a bit longer. Also because I saw someone mentioned they’d cooked your salmon with Parmesan I threw some of that on at the end. Soooo good. Will be making again!
Do we put aluminium foil on the baking tray first, then put a baking sheet on top of the aluminium foil, then put salmon on the baking sheet?
Everyone this great lately every time I cook Salmon I use this recipe it is very quick and “SO GOOD”
Salmon is one of my favorites and I absolutely loved how it came out with this recipe. Thank you!
I made this last night and it was a huge success! I didn’t have any garlic, so I added garlic powder to the lemon juice, and I love dill with salmon so I added some dill weed to the lemon juice as well.
I was seriously skeptical that it could be THAT easy and THAT fast, but it really was! We had dinner on the table in twenty minutes flat, and the salmon was flaky and moist and absolutely melt-in-your-mouth. I am definitely putting this into my permanent rotation.
Going to try make it for good Friday family dinner
Do u place the sheet pan over the broiler? Or just on the rack?

I’m not a salmon person, can I do the same with Cod?
I don’t like Salmon either, so I would like to know too.
Yes Cod would be fine

I LOVE salmon but my darling husband detests it, and I want to be a good little wife and make meals he will eat. Any suggestions on other milder fish that would work? Of note, I’m pregnant so there are quite a few fish I cannot eat right now, including tuna. I know tilapia has a bad reputation, but would it be suitable for this recipe? Thanks!
I tried the parmesan garlic salmon and it was wonderful. Where can I get nutritional info for your recipes?
What temp would I cook this? Or just broil it
I made this tonight and it was Dee -Licious! I used steelhead trout which tastes like salmon to me. It was easy to make and very flavorful. I drizzled olive oil over the fish and asparagus instead of using a spray. I served it with Jasmine rice. Will definitely make on a regular basis. Thanks for this recipe.
I made this tonight and it is absolutely delicious! So quick and easy to prepare and ready in under 15 minutes from start to finish! Simply one of the best recipes I’ve made in a very long time!
That’s so wonderful Emily! Thank you for your feedback. I’m so happy you liked it!
This is now on my “favorite recipes” list! I made it last night and it was DELICIOUS!!!!
Thanks for sharing! I love dishes that I can make with just one pan. I also appreciate it having common ingredients I didn’t have to go out and get! Very delicious!
Darn! My broiler is not working! How can I bake this without the broiler?
Salmon is my fav. Loved your recipe. Must try this xx
Oh my god, this makes me drool!!!
SO happy that your site is working again, I am practically drooling on my keyboard over here. I am totally making this soon, but I don’t think mine will look as pretty as yours!!
