How Long to Cook Salmon at 375


Salmon is a very versatile dish that can be served in many different ways. Whether you are planning to grill, bake or even sauté it, salmon is always delicious. The following instructions will help you cook salmon in the oven.

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place fish in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper, if desired (this is optional).
  • Drizzle with olive oil or melted butter, then bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork (see more about testing doneness below).

2. Rinse salmon and pat dry with paper towels.

Rinse the salmon under cold water to remove any debris, then pat dry with paper towels. Do not rinse or dry the fish with a cloth, which can cause it to get duller.

3. Rub both sides with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste, on both sides of the salmon filet(s).


  • Rub both sides with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste, on both sides of the salmon filet(s). You can use any kind of oil you like; olive oil is just my preference because it adds a little bit of flavor to the fish without overpowering it. You can also add other spices if you want–garlic powder or onion powder would be great! I like to use a pastry brush when applying my seasoning, but if you’re feeling adventurous and don’t mind getting your hands dirty (literally), then go ahead and rub those babies down by hand!

4. Place seasoned salmon filets on an aluminum-foil lined baking sheet in a single layer (you will have space around the salmon, which is fine).

You can use an aluminum-foil lined baking sheet for this, or a baking dish. If you’re worried about the salmon sticking to your pan, you can also use a rack that keeps it off of direct contact with the bottom of your pan. In addition to being great for cookies and brownies (not that I’d know anything about that), these are often sold at grocery stores in packs of two or three–they’re super cheap! Just make sure they don’t have any holes in them–you’ll want them solid enough so they don’t bend under pressure from the weight of whatever else is going on in there too much while cooking.

If using parchment paper: Fold each sheet into quarters before placing overtop each filet; this should help keep things neat! You don’t want any unwanted drips falling off onto other things like stovetops or countertops later when taking out dishes after baking/broiling etc..

5. Bake for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness for medium doneness, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork (or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F).

The cooking time for salmon depends on the thickness of the fillet, as well as its size. Cooking times vary from 10 minutes per inch for medium doneness to about 15 minutes per inch for well done (with an internal temperature of 145 degrees F). If you like your fish rare or medium rare, use a thinner cut and reduce the baking time accordingly.

6. Enjoy!

Now that your salmon is cooked, it’s time to enjoy! Salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, protein and vitamin D. It also contains selenium which helps keep the immune system healthy.
