Perfectly cooked salmon that flakes so easily with a fork. This easy roasted salmon is topped with a sweet and tangy glaze – ready in 30 minutes! A healthy and delicious single serving meal.
On days when I’m not quite sure what to make for dinner, roasted salmon always comes to mind. I love cooking salmon and being that it’s often so warm here in Texas, I grill it outside most of the time.
Lately, with such cold temperatures, grilling outside is not an option. I’m a bit of a wimp, but I don’t grill when temperatures dip below 45 degrees. On those days, it’s the oven or nothing.
Oven Roasted Salmon
Although I love to grill salmon, I love roasted just a little bit better. The salmon cooks so quickly when it’s baked in the oven and it’s always cooked perfectly -the flakiness and the taste just can’t be beat.
For this roasted salmon recipe, I mix together a little maple syrup and Dijon mustard along with a pinch of salt and pepper and pour it over the top of the salmon fillet before it bakes.
The heat from the oven gives the top of the salmon a slight crispiness and the flavor combination of the glaze is fabulous.
Since this is such an easy seafood recipe, I think you might be adding it to your rotating menu as often as I do.
I find that a 5-ounce salmon fillet is the perfect size for one person. This recipe can easily be doubled if you’re cooking for two or if you want to make a little bit extra.
