This lovely baked salmon never lasts too long in our household. My DH absolutely loves salmon and I have cooked it many ways over the years for him. This recipe is one of his favorites cooked in the oven with dried parsley, olive oil and lemon juice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Run salmon under cold water and pat dry with paper towels, set aside.
  2. In a large oven-proof baking dish add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and place the salmon in the baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle the fish with the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  4. Add in this order. The lemon juice, black pepper, kosher salt, dried parsley and place the lemon slices on top of the salmon.
  5. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45minutes or until cooked through and tender.
  6. Serve with long grained rice and steamed asparagus.

You don't need cooking experience to make this dish and it's sooo yumm!
Be generous with the seasoning is my advise!!
