Oven roasted Sockeye Salmon is a dish your family and friends will request often. It is definitely company-worthy. Don't skip this cooking technique, because roasting the fish in a cast iron skillet is what makes this fish moist, flaky, and cooked to perfection every time. If you haven't tried this method, you haven't had good salmon!

How to Make BONNIE'S ROASTED SOCKEYE SALMON

Step-by-Step

  1. Select a cast iron skillet a little larger than the fish. Preheat the oven and the skillet to 450 degrees. Remove the skillet from the oven and lightly coat the bottom of the skillet with bacon grease. Close oven door.
  2. Moving quickly, brush the top and bottom of the fish with olive oil and season top with kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper.
  3. Place the skin side down in the hot skillet and put it back in the hot oven. Don't cover. Roast 15 to 18 minutes until a thermometer probe says it is 125 degrees, then it is done. Take it out of the oven (it is still cooking in the skillet!) Serve immediately. The fish should be flaky and moist. I like to serve it with my Potato Loaf and green beans.
