Garlic butter smothered salmon is a given. It’s possibly one of the most amazing, delicious ways to eat a juicy piece of salmon and gets cooked twice a week in this house. It’s been a while since we gave you salmon and it’s time.

how to make garlic butter baked salmon

This really is an incredibly easy recipe with only 4 main steps:

Bake your potatoes first as salmon needs less time in the oven. This way you’re guaranteed the potatoes will be cooked through when it’s all finished. I used fingerling potatoes in this recipe because we LOVE the flavor of them! You can also use Yukon golds or halved baby potatoes.

Once your potatoes are done, push them to the side and pile on your asparagus and salmon pieces.

Pour on all of your flavors.

Prepare an amazing garlic butter sauce with a hint of white wine (optional) and lemon juice.

Mince your garlic cloves.

Rub the minced garlic all over your salmon fillets.

Combine lemon juice with melted butter and pour it all over your salmon and asparagus.

If you’re missing an ingredient, don’t worry! This recipe is versatile, use what you have in hand. No butter? Use olive oil. Don’t like asparagus? Use broccoli.

Make it your own!

how long to bake salmon

Salmon only needs 8-10 minutes of cooking time in a hot, preheated oven (400°F or 200°C). I broil/grill ours in the last 2 minutes of cook time to get those crispy, golden charred edges.

wine suggestion for baked salmon

I love a chilled glass of white wine with my salmon. We enjoyed a glass or two of chilled Moscato with this! If you’re not a fan of sweet wines, try a good Pinot Gris or Sav Blanc.

Tip: Chill your wine glasses in the freezer for about 30 minutes to keep your wine cool!
