Have you ever wondered how long to bake salmon at 350? It takes 20 to 25 minutes to bake salmon in an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Since the amount of time may vary based on the thickness of the salmon, it’s helpful to know how to tell when salmon is done. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork. The USDA recommends a minimum internal temperature of 145°F measured in the thickest part of the salmon filet. Those who prefer salmon at medium doneness can aim for 125°F for farmed salmon and 120°F for wild salmon.
Now that you know how long to bake salmon at 350 degrees, try this fun cedar plank oven salmon recipe that bakes at 350 degrees!

As someone who isn’t too well practiced at cooking fish, this is immensely helpful. Meat is challenging to find the right cooking time, but fish is so much harder!

I love salmon. I have always been afraid to bake salmon for this very reason of I didn’t know how long to bake it. This post was very helpful to me. I will try the salmon recipes. They all sound really delicious!
I’m a huge fan of salmon but my boyfriend doesn’t like it so we don’t eat it much at home. This looks so tasty though x
I love salmon especially when cooked properly
Such a handy guide! I’m terrible at cooking but this seems simple enough!
We eat a lot of fish in my household and don’t eat meat. I prepare my fish in so many different ways. It all comes down to preference really.
I love to eat salmon. But I have not eaten grilled salmon. You make me crave too much. maybe tonight, I will try it. Thank you for your idea.
Do you have to rinse the salmon and pat it dry before seasoning and cooking it? I’d like to try this recipe tonight. Thank you.
You don’t need to rinse fish. You can, however, brine it briefly if you want to minimize the white protein that forms naturally while cooking. You can see the brining method here (scroll down to the heading “Brining the Salmon Before Oven Baking”): https://recipeforperfection.com/cedar-plank-oven-salmon/
Totally optional, though.
Great! SO informative to me! It came out so so amazing! Thank you for sharing this post!
Delicious..easy to prepare. Used dried dill instead of fresh.
Easy and delicious! I substituted garlic salt for salt added some basil on top and baked for 20 mins. My husband and toddler loved it!
