Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon (Easy, Paleo, SCD-legal)

Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon | This is so good...Okay guys, this one is quick and easy: Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon!  Literally five minutes or less for prep and 15-20 minutes in the oven.  Boom – dinner!!

We all know how good fatty fish like Salmon is for us, but if you’re like me, I don’t prepare it that often.  With a recipe like this, there’s no excuse.  While the Salmon is baking you can sauté or roast some veggies and you have a well rounded, tasty meal.

Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon | This is so good...I think this Salmon preparation would pair nicely with any of the following sides:  Simple Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower Puree, Spicy Roasted Broccoli, or Snow Pea and Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry.  Even a simple salad would be delicious!

Let’s get to the recipe!

Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon (Easy recipe, Paleo, SCD-legal)


  • 1-1.5 pound Salmon fillet (I prefer to leave the skin on. If you would like, you can have your fish monger remove it for you.)
  • 2 Tablespoons ghee or butter (If you are dairy-free, you can substitute olive oil or coconut oil.)
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 large clove of garlic, crushed or finely minced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a baking dish large enough to hold the Salmon fillet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the ghee or butter in a bowl and add the lemon juice, zest, and garlic. Stir to combine.
  3. Place the Salmon fillet skin side down on the parchment paper and season with sea salt and pepper.
  4. Brush the butter mixture over the fish, evenly spreading out the garlic and zest.
  5. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
  6. Let the Salmon rest for a couple of minutes before serving.
