An easy salmon dinner has always been one of my go-to favorites for my family. I prefer the fancy-free option of lightly seasoned salmon using a bit of herbes de Provence or a combination of thyme, rosemary, and basil, and adding some salt and pepper. This dinner can pair perfectly with a side of grilled (or baked) vegetables, a side of plain rice, or even some mashed potatoes.

My family loves the flavor, and I love the simplicity of this winner meal.

Salmon Seasoned with Herbs and Olive Oil

  • 4 cutlets of salmon (frozen or fresh).
  • 1 tsp herbs de Provence or mixed herbs.
  • 1 tsp salt.
  • 1 tsp pepper.
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil.

Good for The Environment

I also ensure that I use Sustainable Seafood: Sustainable seafood is seafood that is either caught or farmed in ways that consider the long-term vitality of harvested species and the well-being of the oceans, as well as the livelihoods of fisheries-dependent communities.


  1. Preheat oven to 220C/430F.
  2. Season your salmon with all the ingredients and place skin-side-down onto your baking tray.
  3. Bake for about 25 minutes for frozen and 20 minutes for fresh salmon.
  4. Serve with a side or on its own.

Enjoy with side of your choice, such as mashed potatoes or grilled vegetables such as asparagus, rice, or even just on its own.
