Easy Caesar Baked Salmon Recipe

25 Feb

With the start of Lent, I don’t eat typical meat on Friday’s but I do still eat fish.  With yesterday being the first Friday of Lent, we decided to make salmon and asparagus for dinner. 

I haven’t always been good at baking salmon and honestly sometimes I’ve made it and have just thrown it away since it didn’t taste good.  A few weeks ago when Keith’s parents were visiting from Montana his mom threw together a salmon recipe that has since become my favorite go-to recipe.  It isn’t only super tasty, but it is so easy and quick to make too.  No marinating here.

Easy Caesar Baked Salmon  

Serves:  4

*This recipe is a more play it by ear recipe.  I don’t have exact measurements and the below are just estimations of how much of each ingredient I use. 


  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • Salmon, enough to serve 4, skin removed preferred
  • 2tbsp Brianna’s Caesar dressing
  • 1tsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp vegetable seasoning
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 1tsp black pepper
  • 1/4c breadcrumbs (you may not even need this much)


1.  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2.  Wash salmon and place on a foiled lined baking tray greased with olive oil.

3.  lightly coat the salmon with the Caesar dressing and season with garlic powder, vegetable seasoning, cumin and black pepper.  Add a dusting of breadcrumbs over the top.

4. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on the cut and thickness of your fish.  Broil on high for 3 minutes before removing the salmon from the oven.


*The baking time will also depend on how dry you like your salmon as well. 



Serve with a side of asparagus and brown rice and you have yourself a complete balanced meal!

Or just have asparagus like we had last night!  Delish!

    Salmon is my number one favorite food ever (of any). I love it all. My favorite would have to be just grilled but I’m terrible at cooking. This looks pretty simple so perhaps I’ll be trying it. 🙂

    yum this looks fab! I have to go to Whole Foods and pick up some of that Brianna’s dressing. Speaking of dressing- you gotta try is called Garlic Expressions. Kind of hard to find, and usually in the fruits/veggies section of the grocery store. It is the best salad dressing ever!!!!! haha but back to the topic of salmon~ my favorite is blackened salmon or just plain salt n pepper with lemon baked salmon. So good. My favorite fish!
    Thanks for sharing. and btw, I’m making your tomato fennel soup for lunch today 🙂 ill let u know how it goes! xo

    I love salmon but didn’t have it for a while because the thought of it made me queezy during the 1st trimester. I think i’d be ok with it now so I’ll have to give it a try soon. This recipe sounds delicious!

    The husband barbecues, & it’s always amazing. Not sure what he uses as a marinate (he makes it himself), but I’m not even a huge salmon fan & I love it!
