Servings 4


  • 1.5 lbs Salmon sockeye, king, coho, or farmed Atlantic all work
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pinch black pepper omit if can't have pepper
  • 1/2 juice from half a lemon


  • Prepare a cookie sheet big enough to hold all your pieces of salmon.  Do a layer of foil, then a layer of parchment.  No cooking spray required!  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • On a cutting board or covered cutting board (place parchment over the board to reduce the messy clean-up), slice your salmon into 4 ounce to 6 ounce portions, depending on how large you want them.  The fish market or grocery store can sometimes cut them for you if you ask, and even de-bone them.
  • Place each piece on the prepared cookie sheet with a little space between them so they can cook fully. 
  • Drizzle with olive oil and squeeze your lemon juice over the top of the fish. 
  • Sprinkle on your dill, salt, and pepper
  • Pop them in the oven at 375 degrees to bake for approximately 30 minutes.  The fish will change in color and the pieces will likely shrink a little bit (that is normal).  You can remove the skins after they finish cooking if you want (some people like the skin on).
