This is one of the easiest ways of cooking fresh salmon. Baking in aluminum foil is particularly recommended for fresh salmon to preserve its delicate flavor. It makes a wonderful party dish, hot or cold.

Best Baked Salmon Recipe:

Recipe Type: Salmon, Seafood, Lemon, Onion, Tomato
Yields: 8 servings
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 60 min


1 (3- to 4-pound) salmon filet, cleaned
Salt and coarsely-ground pepper
6 bacon slices
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 large tomato, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 350° F. Wash salmon filet and pat dry; place onto aluminum foil.

Salt and pepper the cavity of the salmon. Layer bacon slices, lemon slices, onion slices, and tomato slices in the cavity of salmon; wrap in aluminum foil.

raw salmon filletBake 1 to 1 1/2 hours until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. or until fish is slightly opaque in thickest part (cut to test). During this time the meat continues to cook (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the oven) and the juices redistribute.

This is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. To learn more about this excellent thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined: Thermapen Thermometer.

Remove from oven, remove aluminum foil, and transfer onto a serving platter to serve.

Makes 8 servings.
