How To Make Roasted Salmon

  1. Turn on your oven’s broil function. If your oven doesn’t have a broiler, preheat the oven to 450° Fahrenheit.
  2. Remove the salmon from the fridge and allow it to warm up to room temperature. About 15 minutes.  
  3. Put the salmon in a Cast Iron Skillet. Season both sides with sweet smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Put the salmon with the skin side facing up into the oven. Set your kitchen timer to 6 minutes.
  5. Flip the salmon and put it back into the oven. Set the timer to 6 minutes. If you see that your salmon has a nice golden crust, you’re done. Sometimes if the salmon is thicker, you need to add another minute or two.
  6. Remove the salmon from the oven. Allow it rest for a couple of minutes in the skillet. This allows the juices to come out and you’ll have a nice piece of fully cooked salmon. Serve and enjoy.

LEFTOVERS IDEAS

I’ve served the roasted salmon over everything from yummy salads to classic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. And really, the sky is the limit! My husband loves a next-day salmon sandwich.

SALMON ON TOAST

Take the leftover salmon out of the fridge and let it warmed up to room temperature. Meanwhile, toast your favorite bread. Spread some hummus on the toast. Add the salmon on top and voila you’ve created a great lunch option.

SALMON AND PASTA

Another yummy leftover possibility for roasted salmon is pasta. We love roasted salmon with Mascarpone and Pear Pasta.

SALMON AND SOUP

Salmon and soup s also a great second-day alternative. Especially during ‘soup season’ in the fall and winter. Butternut Squash Soup and Salmon make a delicious combination. Simply cut the roasted salmon into bite-sized pieces and add it to the soup. 

SALMON AND SALAD 

Last but not least roasted salmon and salad. We have a version dish pretty much every week. At the moment I love this salad recipe!

Track Your Recipes

Do you love trying new recipes? Are you scrolling down Pinterest to find inspiration? I love to create and cook new recipes, too. But unfortunately, sometimes I forget the recipes I’ve made or created.

One of my goals is to keep track of what we had for dinner each night in my bullet journal. And I got this idea from Christopher Allen’s YouTube channel. He mentioned that he tracks what he has for dinner every night.

Best of all, having a ‘historical record’ of your past meals makes meal planning a lot easier!

    This looks amazing. I’m so excited to buy fresh salmon and make this recipe. Just to confirm, you don’t use any oil when you roast the salmon?
