Honey Rosemary Baked Salmon Ingredients

How to Make Baked Salmon

You are going to love this dish because it is impressive to serve, but SO easy…and the flavors are incredible!

  • Slice two large sweet potatoes into rounds, making sure they are all the same thickness. You want them thinly sliced.
  • You are going to cook the sweet potato rounds for 12 minutes BEFORE adding the salmon. The sweet potatoes need more cooking time so you will get them going in the oven while you prepare the salmon.
  • You will need four pieces of fresh salmon, about 6 oz each. We prefer wild caught salmon. Choose salmon that looks vibrant, smooth, moist, and has no brown spots or discoloring. The salmon shouldn’t smell fishy or sour.
  • Combine the softened butter, garlic, honey, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. This simple butter mixture is going to melt into the salmon as it bakes and create the most amazing salmon!
  • After the sweet potatoes have been cooking for 12 minutes, remove the pan from the oven. Place the salmon fillets directly on top of the sweet potatoes. Spread the butter mixture evenly on salmon pieces. Place the lemon slices on top.
  • Put the pan back in the oven and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until the salmon is opaque throughout. The cook time will depend on the thickness of your salmon pieces. Check at 10 minutes to be safe. You don’t want to over cook the fish.
  • Dinner is DONE! Serve the salmon with the sweet potatoes and enjoy!
