Roasted Salmon with Lemon

Roasted salmon with lemon

This is a go-to recipe in the middle of the week when prep time is limited!


Time to cook 15 minutes | makes 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon (wild-caught if possible)

  • 1 lemon, sliced

  • 1 tsp. olive oil

  • kosher salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 lemon wedges (for serving)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Place salmon on a sheet tray. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with lemon slices.

  3. Roast until salmon is a bit brown on the edges but still a bit soft in the middle, about 15 minutes. You can use a thermometer and take it out of the oven when internal temperature is 140 degrees. Let rest 5 minutes.

  4. Serve with lemon wedges if desired.
