Lemon Garlic Herb Salmon



For the Salmon:

  • 2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each), skin-on or skinless, your preference

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Lemon Garlic Herb Seasoning:

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 tablespoons parsley, dried or finely chopped fresh

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Lemon slices, for garnishing, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving extra over the side for creating a pocket later. Set it aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the Lemon Garlic Herb seasoning. Mix well to create a flavorful herb seasoning.

  3. Place the salmon fillets on a clean cutting board and pat them dry with paper towels. Drizzle olive oil evenly over both sides of the salmon fillets, then season them generously with salt and black pepper. Place the seasoned salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Spoon the prepared Lemon Garlic Herb Seasoning evenly over the top of each salmon fillet, ensuring they are generously coated with the mixture. Top each salmon with a lemon slice. Then, cover the salmon, creating a pocket.

  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets. The salmon should easily flake with a fork when done. Be careful not to overcook; salmon is best when slightly pink in the center. Once the salmon is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a couple of minutes.

  6. Serve the Lemon Garlic Herb Seasoned Salmon hot. It pairs beautifully with a side of roasted or steamed vegetables, a fresh green salad, or over a bed of rice.
