  5. Bake the salmon for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

5 tips for making a delicious baked salmon:

  1. Choose fresh salmon: Fresh salmon tastes better than frozen salmon, so try to buy it fresh from a reputable fish market. Look for salmon that has bright, shiny skin and no visible blemishes.
  2. Use parchment paper: To prevent the salmon from sticking to the baking dish, line it with parchment paper. This will also make clean-up easier.
  3. Don’t overcook the salmon: Overcooking the salmon can make it dry and tough. Check the salmon after 12 minutes and remove it from the oven as soon as it starts to flake easily with a fork.
  4. Let the salmon rest: After removing the salmon from the oven, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This will help the juices redistribute throughout the fish and make it more tender.
  5. Customize the marinade: You can easily customize the marinade to your liking. Try adding different herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, or using lime juice instead of lemon juice.

By following these tips, you can make a delicious baked salmon that is flavorful, moist, and perfectly cooked.
