Flash Baked Salmon

Super quick and yummy! Cooks Illustrated is my source 😉

  • Heat your oven to 500 degrees and place a rack at the lowest level.
  • Cover a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place it on the bottom rack.


  • I used Sockeye Salmon with the skin, and cut a 1 and 1/3 pound filet into 4 pieces
  • Pat dry with paper towel
  • Cut 4 diagonal slits in the skin of each piece, but don’t cut through to the flesh 


  • Rub all sides with olive oil
  • Sprinkle with salt
  • Lower the oven temperature to 275 degrees


  • Place the salmon skin side down on the hot baking sheet
  • Bake 6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 125 degrees, or to your preference


  • Voila! Serve at once!
