  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Fresh parsley leaves, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°
  2. Place the salmon fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet, ensuring there is enough space between them for even cooking.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, fresh lemon juice, melted butter, chopped parsley, salt, and black pepper. Stir until the ingredients meld into a fragrant and luscious mixture.
  4. Generously spread the garlic Parmesan mixture over the top of each salmon fillet, ensuring they are evenly coated. The marriage of garlic and Parmesan creates a savoury crust that will add depth and richness to every bite.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the salmon for about 12-15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Once the salmon is cooked to perfection, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes, allowing the flavours to settle and ensuring a succulent and tender texture.
  7. Carefully transfer the Baked Garlic Parmesan Salmon fillets to serving plates, using a spatula to maintain their integrity
  8. Serve the salmon alongside lemon wedges, allowing a refreshing squeeze of citrus to brighten the flavours. Garnish with fresh parsley leaves for a touch of vibrant green and a nod to the herbaceous elements of the dish.
