How long should you cook baked salmon steaks?

If you want to ensure your salmon is safe to eat but also perfectly soft and flaky, there is no way to do this by using time as your cooking guide. Everyone’s oven is different, and it will also depend on how thick the steaks are. 

If you want to ensure your salmon is safe to eat but also perfectly soft and flaky, there is no way to do this by using time as your cooking guide. Everyone’s oven is different, and it will also depend on how thick the steaks are. 

The internal temperature for perfect fish is 60 °C. It will take approximately 12-15 minutes to reach this temperature, so test the salmon with your Thermapen thermometer after it’s been cooking for around 15 minutes to see how it’s getting on. If it’s not quite there, put it back in the oven for a little longer before checking again. 

directions
To make the dressing
  • In a bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients together.
