Exact baking times for salmon vary depending on the size of the salmon fillet and the specific recipe. The Food Network features an oven-baked salmon recipe that bakes in 12 to 15 minutes, and Taste of Home offers a baked salmon recipe that bakes in 20 to 25 minutes.
To make The Food Network's oven-baked salmon, cut a 12-ounce salmon fillet into 4 pieces, and season with salt and pepper. Place the salmon on a nonstick baking sheet, and bake at 450 F for 12 to 15 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through.
To make Taste of Home's baked salmon, place a 2-pound salmon fillet in a greased 13-by-9-inch baking dish, brushed with butter. Combine 1/4-cup chicken broth, 2-tablespoons lemon juice, 1/2-teaspoon dried tarragon and 1/2-teaspoon pepper, and pour the mixture over salmon. Bake uncovered at 425 F for 20 to 25 minutes, until the salmon flakes with a fork.
