Easy Baked or Grilled Salmon

I’m not big on fishing, but I do love an occasional meal of seasoned baked salmon. Of course, I’ll go along for a ride in the boat or grab a book to read by the river. It might even be fun to toss out a line or two, but that’s my limit. Luckily my husband enjoys fishing, so I can just fill the companion role.

When I was growing up my family was big on fried fish. My uncle would coat each salmon steak with flour and salt and pepper. Then that piece of fish was fried up in a good amount of oil. The fish had a delicious crispy crust on the outside and was moist and tender on the inside. It was crazy good!!

Fast forward to my current life where I don’t feel good eating that way and prefer to keep most meals on a healthier spectrum. The salmon is still incredibly delicious and a whole lot easier to prepare.


I’m sure you are aware of the high reviews salmon gets for its omega-3 fatty acids, but let’s not stop there…

  • 1.25 lbs Salmon that has been cleaned and filleted. 
  • 1-2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon
  • Flavor Connections Rib Rub & Seasoning  Shake the desired amount over fish
  • McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic & Herb Shake the desired amount over fish
  •  McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Chicken optional for Fodmap diets
  •  Corn-free diets I would suggest adding corn-free melted butter and lemon followed by minced garlic and salt.


  • After your fish has been cleaned and filleted. Pat it dry with a paper towel.
  • Cover a large cookie sheet with foil and spray with a non-stick spray.
  • Place fish on foil.
  • Melt butter and brush over top of fish. You can also add some lemon juice to the butter if you like.
  • Then shake Flavor Connections Rib Rub & Seasoning over the fish followed by McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Roasted Garlic & Herb.   Fodmap diets only use McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Chicken.
  • Cover with another piece of foil.
  • Corn-free diets I would suggest adding corn-free melted butter and lemon followed by minced garlic and salt.
  • Place in a preheated 425 oven for about 25-30 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Sometimes if it is a really thick piece I will remove the foil after the first 20min. then continue to bake it until the inside is flaking not gel-like.
  • In the summer I like this recipe on the barbecue I fold the salmon inside a large piece of foil and close the lid on the barbecue while it's cooking.
