– salmon – avocado oil – sea salt – garlic powder – paprika



Preheat the oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit and move one of the oven racks to a shelf that’s near the bottom.

Place the salmon filets in the baking dish skin side down and drizzle with avocado oil. Coat all of the flesh with oil to ensure it bakes evenly and doesn’t burn.


Sprinkle the salmon with sea salt, garlic powder, and paprika.



Bake on the lower shelf of the oven for 8 to 10 minutes (depending on your desired level of doneness), or until the salmon is fully pink and the fat appears white.

Remove the salmon from the oven, change it to the High Broil setting, and move one of the oven racks to the shelf that’s either 2nd or 3rd from the top of the oven.
