  • Lemon wedges or lemon zest, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

  3. Remove pan from oven and place fillets skin-side up. Return to oven and roast 4 minutes. 
  4. Remove from oven and pull the skin from salmon (if the skin doesn’t pull away roast another 1 – 2 minutes). 
  5. Season the now skinless side with salt and pepper then carefully flip fillets and season opposite side with salt and pepper. Sprinkle garlic into melted butter around salmon. 
  6. Return to oven and cook to desired doneness, about 3 – 4 minutes longer.
