The Best and Easiest Baked Salmon Recipe

A few weeks ago wild salmon went on sale at our local grocery store. We got about 8 fillets, some we used for the cold smoked salmon recipe, while some I froze and the rest we cooked all week. Over that period of time, I found the perfect way to make salmon, keeping it very moist and flavorful. If you wish to omit garlic salt, you can always replace it with sea salt, and a bit of lemon juice does magic as well.

If you want a healthy dish, this is the way to go. It will literally take you under 20 minutes to prepare and the turnout is phenomenal. We also like to use leftovers in work salads with simple ranch dressing.

Prepare ingredients for the dish. Rinse fillets under cold water, apt dry with a paper towel.
Place salmon skin down on a lined baking sheet with foil. Drizzle oil over the fillets and sprinkle them generously with garlic salt.
Move the rack closer to the top level. Turn on High broil and place the salmon to cook. It should be all cooked at 10-12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon fillet. If you have leftovers, wrap it up with he foil, it will keep it moist.
