Salmon is healthy and packed full of nutrition. This garlic herb roasted salmon is one of the best salmon recipes ever.
Well, we all know that salmon is loaded with omega-3 and an excellent source for a child’s cognitive development.

I am just happy that little G loves salmon. In fact, he would ask for salmon as his dinner whenever he has a craving for fish.
A few days ago, he asked me to serve salmon with his favorite garlic noodles, and here it is the garlic herb roasted salmon I made for him.
This recipe is literally what it says: garlic, herb (I used Italian parsley), and salmon roasted in an oven. It’s a great Fall/Winter recipe and definitely one of the easiest salmon recipes I have attempted.
So easy, completely fuss-free, and I didn’t even have to marinate. When you have pretty fresh salmon, you don’t need a lot of seasonings or ingredients. Let the natural flavors of salmon shines.
A little butter, herb, salt, black pepper, and lemon juice are all you need. Dinner is done in about 20 minutes, and hurray to more brain power for the little ones!

What a delicious recipe for salmon. I loved the flavors in this – and best of all – it’s easy peasy! Served with some rice and broccoli alongside. Perfect for a weeknight (or company) meal!
Hi Lori, absolutely, glad that you love my garlic herb roasted salmon recipe.
I made this recipe last night and it was delicious. I like recipes that have just a few ingredients, it lets all the ingredients shine. It was a nice change in the way a cook salmon (wild caught from Alaska), which is grilled – 99%. Hubby loved, but we think it was a bit under baked, next time I will flake the fish before I remove from the oven. It probably would be ready in 13 minutes, instead 12min. I will put this recipe in my recipe folder because this one is a winner. I served with your parm linguine and green beans.Thank you for the recipe.
Thanks Jane for trying my recipe. :)
