I’m absolutely in love with sheetpan and/or easy dinners because a) a sheet pan means virtually no cleanup and b) easy dinners mean that we can all still “wow” our families, friends and even ourselves with some simple ingredients and basic techniques. Cooking isn’t supposed to be difficult or stressful. It’s supposed to be fun and exciting and full of new flavors and experimentation.
So, this salmon recipe is the recipe for people who are nervous to cook fish. Worried about soggy skin, overcooked, dry, salmon or any of the other things that people worry about when cooking fish? Have no fear. This is your recipe!
How to make Oven Baked Greek Salmon
- Get yourself a sheet pan. You can grab one on the cheap right here-> perfect non-stick sheet pan for salmon.
- Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Preheating the oven pretty much goes for every recipe, but especially for salmon so that the skin gets crispy and the salmon doesn’t get dry.
- Mix the ingredients for the olive oil marinade and drizzle it over the salmon.
- Cut the potatoes into quarters and drizzle with the remaining olive oil marinade.
- Bake in the oven.
How long should you bake salmon (at 350ºF)
- It does depend on the size of the salmon that you’re cooking but here are a couple of rules that should help.
- Salmon should be baked to an internal temperature of 145ºF. Gently push the tip of a food thermometer into the center of the salmon and watch for the reading.
- For a 2 pound fillet of salmon like I’ve used in this recipe 25 minutes is perfect
- Making sure that your salmon is room temperature will help your salmon cook evenly.
You can absolutely use smaller individual fillets rather than a large one like I used.
What to serve with sheetpan Greek salmon
- Orzo or rice
