Oven Baked Salmon

Recipe Notes

No time to thaw? You can bake salmon from frozen:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Place the frozen salmon pieces in a foil-lined baking dish. Tightly cover the dish (without the cover touching the salmon) and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the cover, drizzle the salmon with oil, season with salt and pepper and cook uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes until it is opaque on the outside and flakes when tested with a fork.

Ingredients

1 Tablespoon
vegetable oil
12
to 16 ounces fresh or thawed salmon, cut into 3 or 4 pieces of similar size
1⁄4 teaspoon
salt
1⁄4 teaspoon
pepper

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Place the salmon, skin side down, on a foil-lined baking pan. Drizzle the flesh with oil and sprinkle on the salt and pepper.

3. Bake the salmon for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness and size of thefish pieces.

4. The salmon has cooked long enough when it is opaque on the outside and flakes when tested with a fork. If you have a food thermometer, check in the middle of a piece for a temperature of 145 degrees F.

5. Remove the pan from the oven and serve the salmon skin side down.

6. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

I had some frozen salmon portions that I would ordinarily have thawed first, but tried your method for baking it from frozen a couple of nights ago and it worked like a dream. I told my neighbor (from 6' away, of course) and she tried it as well with rave reviews. Now salmon can be last minute choice for dinner!
