If you aren’t sure how long to bake salmon, then I’ll give you a few tips:
- Always make sure your salmon internal temperature is 145 degrees Fahrenheit at the thickest part of the fillet.
- If it flakes easily with a fork that means it’s ready!
- There’s no need to flip your salmon while it’s cooking.
- There are 3 things to look for to know if your salmon fillet is ready: firm, flaky, and non-transparent!
Ultimately, salmon is very easy to work with and doesn’t really need any preparation! It’s a perfect dish to make on a busy night and great to pair with some green beans, broccoli, or potatoes on the side!
