Oven-Seared Salmon & Our Allergy Home Meal Plan

It seems to have become a tradition in our home over the last few years that we have fish of some sort on Sunday.  I’m not sure why or how this evolved, it just has.  We enjoy a number of fish dishes from Homemade Sushi to Fried Fish to Pan-Seared Salmon Filet, or in today’s case, oven-seared Salmon.

About a month ago, I shared the amazingly delicious recipe for Pan-Seared Salmon Filets.  That happens to be only one of two methods we use when preparing salmon.  I’m sharing the other, and perhaps less messy, method with you today.  That is, the oven-seared method.  It’s very easy and exceedingly tasty! In fact, we recently changed the mind of our “I don’t eat Salmon because it’s too slimy” sister-in-law 🙂 to now making it herself.

If salmon is allowed in your diet, grab yourself a good filet {I highly recommend buying choice fish as you may regret it otherwise…ask me how I know!}, and enjoy the health and flavor benefits of Oven-Seared Salmon.

Oven-Seared Salmon

2 lbs feeds 4 people.


  • 2 pounds salmon
  • 1 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons paprika


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Rinse salmon and pat dry; place on large baking sheet or broiler pan.

2. Drizzle with grapeseed oil (or other high temp oil). Evenly sprinkle on spices (note the amount of paprika - really load it on, smoked paprika is best).

3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Change oven to broil on high for 3-5 minutes, until crispy and darkening on top.


Is there a dish that you find you have on a routine, like for Sunday lunch or maybe Friday Family Pizza night? It’s kind of fun to do!
