Find home care near you or your loved one:

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 portions of salmon, desired size
  • 2 tsp. (10 mL) olive oil
  • 2 tsp. (10 mL) favorite seasoning
  • Dash pepper


  1. Adjust if needed, oven rack to the 2nd from the top position.
  2. Preheat oven to broil-high.
  3. Use a glass oven-safe flat-bottomed square dish or smaller. Brush ½ tsp. (2 mL) olive oil on top of each piece of salmon; sprinkle ½ tsp. (2 mL) seasoning on each piece. Measure salmon at thickest part. Plan to broil on high for 5 minutes per side, per inch of thickness (i.e., if salmon is 2″ [5 cm] thick, broil on first side for 5 minutes, flip and broil on second side for 5 minutes).
  4. Place baking dish with seasoned salmon in oven to broil. Set your timer to remind you to flip the salmon.
  5. Pull dish out of oven. Flip salmon pieces to the uncooked side. Brush with remaining olive oil and seasoning (divided). Place back in oven and broil for additional 5 minutes or until thickest part of salmon just separates when tested with a fork. Do not overcook salmon. Let salmon rest on stove top for 1–2 minutes before serving.
