  • 4 (4-6 oz) salmon fillets or one large fillet
  • 3/4 teaspoon avocado oil spray or olive oil spray
  • fine sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt we use the one from Trader Joe's
  • fresh herbs or preferred seasonings
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • fresh lemon wedges for serving


  1. Turn your oven to broil and set to high.

  2. Pat down the skin of the salmon with a paper towel.

  3. Lightly spray your salmon with some avocado oil spray. Season with salt, pepper, onion salt and lemon juice.

  4. Place salmon fillets, skin side down, in a single layer in a lightly-coated or parchment lined baking sheet.

  5. Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook salmon for 11-14 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon.

  6. Serve with your favorite sides, fresh lemon wedges and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

  • To Store & Reheat: Refrigerate cooled salmon in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheat in a 275°F oven for 15 minutes, or until warmed through.
  • To Freeze: Wrap each cooled fillet in a tight layer of cling wrap and freeze them in an airtight container or storage bag for up to 4 months. Thaw in the fridge before reheating.
