Simple Baked Salmon


I love to cook salmon because it is so easy, nutritious and most of all delicious! For this recipe, I have used both fresh and frozen salmon and both have turned out great. Also, if you have frozen chicken broth cubes and frozen lemon juice cubes it makes this recipe even faster.

Baked Salmon

2 lbs salmon (4 fillets)

2 Tbsp butter, softened

1/2 cup homemade chicken broth (5-6 frozen chicken broth cubes)

2 Tbsp lemon juice (1 frozen lemon juice cube)

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1/2 tsp dried tarragon

  • Preheat oven to 425° F
  • Place salmon fillets in a 13 x 9 baking dish and brush with butter.
  • Combine remaining ingredients and pour over salmon. If using frozen chicken broth and lemon cubes, melt them ahead of time by placing them in the refrigerator about an hour or more ahead of time.
  • Bake salmon uncovered for 20-25 min.
