How to Cook Salmon in the Oven

Heat oven and then dry the salmon. Use a cloth that is free of lint to accomplish this.

Include a drizzle of olive oil on the salmon and then season in accordance with the recipe you’re creating. Season generously.

Next, put your salmon skin-side down in an oven-safe skillet or pan, and then transfer it to the oven that is preheated. Make sure your salmon is at the temperature of room (not frozen or cold) prior to placing it into the oven. This helps to cook the fish evenly.

The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the salmon. It can be measured by the most thick portion of the fillet that takes the longest amount of time to cook. When the salmon is cooked it will flake easily which can be easily done by using the help of a fork. It’s also possible to tell when it’s done when an internal temperature of 145 degF is achieved.

Sprinkle a bit in olive oil onto a the skillet or oven-safe dish and then place salmon fillets into the pan, with honey butter drizzled on top of each. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Keep the rest of the honey butter.

The thickness will depend on your salmon bake it for 10 to 15 minutes or until it is flaky and internal temperature is 145 degrees. If the salmon is almost done at around the 7-8 minutes mark, add remaining honey butter into the pan.
