How to Bake Perfect Salmon
Fool-proof method for delicately tender and juicy baked salmon every time! You’ll love melt-in-your-mouth buttery salmon layers infused with flavorful pesto sauce!
skinless salmon fillets
ground black pepper
Lemon wedges for serving
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
Line a baking sheet with foil.
Drizzle the olive oil all over the prepared baking sheet and evenly sprinkle half of the salt and pepper on the baking sheet.
Arrange the salmon fillets over the olive oil and sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper.
Spread 1 tablespoon of pesto on each filet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Depending on the thickness of the fish, it’ll take more or less. I prefer to cook the fillets until internal temp reaches around 135°F.
Drizzle fresh lemon juice and serve immediately.
