Garlic Butter Baked Salmon

Created for the 1 1/2 qt. Signature Oval Baker


  • 1 head garlic
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds salmon, skin on
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Peel away any extra skin from the garlic, then cut in half horizontally, exposing the cloves. Pour the oil into the oval baker, and place the garlic, cut side down, into the oil. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the cloves are golden brown and soft. Remove the cloves and wrap in aluminum foil to keep them from drying out.

Adjust the oven temperature to a low broil. Place the oval baker on the stovetop over medium-high heat.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper, and pat dry. Place it skin down into the oil. Allow the fish to cook until the skin is crisp, then remove from the heat. The salmon will only be partially cooked at this point.

Remove the roasted garlic from the foil and cut each piece in half. Arrange the garlic around the salmon, and season with salt and pepper. Top the fish with a few slices of lemon, squeezing some of the juice over the top. Top with pats of butter.

Place the salmon in the oven to finish cooking on low broil, about 8 minutes. Serve with additional lemon and fresh parsley for garnish.
