What You’ll Need For The Best Baked Salmon with Vegetables
When it comes to salmon, you don’t need fancy ingredients. Let’s chat about it!
Salmon: You can make it with salmon steaks or fillets or even a side of salmon. Trout will work as well!
Potatoes: It usually takes about 35-40 minutes to roast potatoes until tender. We recommend to pre-cook potatoes and broccoli. Simply boil in a large pot of salted water until tender for 7-8 minutes and you are good to go!
Broccoli: If you don’t like broccoli, use asparagus, cauliflower or mushroom.
Butter: We like to use butter for a buttery taste, but vegetable oil (like Canola) is a great alternative.
Salt and pepper: Adjust the amount to your taste.
Garlic: I am using 2 tablespoons of minced/chopped garlic. Feel free to use less or more!
Lemon juice: Any fish is better with lemon juice, it adds that bright zesty touch.
how to make garlic butter baked salmon with vegetables
- Pre-cook veggies. Cook the quartered potatoes in a pan of salted boiling water for 5 minutes, then add broccoli florets and cook further for 2 minutes or until almost tender. Drain.
- Combine oil/ butter, lemon juice and black pepper in a small bowl. Keep aside.
- Place the salmon steaks on a baking sheet / dish. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
- Arrange potatoes and broccoli florets around the steaks.
- Pour the lemon butter mixture over the salmon steaks, potatoes and broccoli. Top the steaks with 3-4 lemon slices.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes until salmon is opaque throughout and potatoes are fork-tender. For charred edges, broil in the last 2 minutes.
What is The Best Temperature For Baking Salmon
Always bring salmon to room temperature before baking. This helps with even cooking.
We find that baking salmon at 400° F|200°C keeps the salmon moist and prevents overcooking.
- Cook normal size steaks/fillets for 13-14 minutes.
- Larger pieces need 13-15 minutes.
- Cook a whole side of salmon for 15-16 minutes.
Pro tip: Salmon is ready when it flakes easily with a fork. Alternatively, you can use an instant-read thermometer. The internal temperature should be 140°F (60°C).
How to Store and Reheat The Leftover Salmon
You can store the leftover salmon and vegetables in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Alternatively, freeze it for 3-4 months.
If you prefer to freeze it, make sure it is cool. Line a container with parchment paper to prevent salmon from sticking to it. Reheat LOW and SLOW in microwave or oven for the best results.
