Easy Roast Salmon

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

This is such a simple recipe, but it is absolutely delicious! Cook time includes the 10 minutes that the fish should stand after roasting.

Made it last night... super easy, the skin easily peeled off and the bones just lifted out... going into my cookbook. Thanks Have made this several times now and it never fails.


  1. Rinse salmon and place in large baking pan.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over one side of fish; spread oil evenly with hands and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
  3. Turn fish over and repeat on the other side.
  4. Roast 20 minutes at 500 degrees, then let stand 10 minutes before removing skin and deboning (make sure you get all the bones!).
