Easy Baked Salmon Dinner is one of my favorite go to recipes. I love the fact that salmon is so good for you and that you can put it in the oven. 

If your fillets are a little thick and take more than 10 minutes to bake, you can take the potatoes and the asparagus off and keep cooking the fish. Then add them back to the pan and broil your salmon to make it a beautiful color.

Shhhhhh, if you do not want to spend all Memorial Day cooking, grilling or cooking on the Trager for a few hours, this recipe is just for you! I wish I could make this, but I will be out camping and I will be cooking, along with my husband and kids, for 60 people. 

Maybe you just want to make this Easy Baked Salmon Dinner for dinner tonight. Whatever your goal is, I promise you are going to love this recipe.

Tips and Tricks For Easy Baked Salmon Dinner:

 

  • If you are big on garlic, go ahead and add a little more if you like, I tend to go a little on the light side with garlic.
  • You could replace the Asparagus with some fresh Broccoli. I haven’t tried fresh Green Beans, but I bet those would be great too. Or use the vegetable of your choice.
  • We like Yukon Gold Potatoes, but you could also use Red or Russet Potatoes. I have never tried Sweet Potatoes, but if you cut them in smaller pieces, they would be wonderful too.
  • I bought a larger piece of Salmon because it was a little cheaper that way. Then I cut it into 4 pieces.
  • Broil the dish for 1 – 2 minutes to give it extra color if desired.
  • Store any leftovers, covered in the refrigerator.
