Easy Sour Cream Baked Salmon

We love this salmon formula! It’s tasty, delicate and takes under 30 minutes, which makes it ideal for occupied evenings.

It’s additionally ideal for exceptional events. Consider serving the salmon with a light plate of mixed greens, pureed potatoes, our crushed cauliflower or your preferred side.

We spread a blend of harsh cream, entire ground mustard and parmesan cheddar on salmon. At that point, we slide them into the broiler for around 15 minutes. The formula is simple, in addition to that harsh cream outside layer is so acceptable! For another straightforward salmon formula, attempt our salmon with lemon and dill, salmon with garlic trick margarine or this one-skillet broiler simmered salmon and green beans.

This easy baked salmon recipe is perfect for a weekday, but could also fill in for a special occasion. The fish is smothered with a mixture of sour cream, mustard, and parmesan cheese.


  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon filets

  • 1/2 cup whole fat sour cream

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons whole grain mustard

  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • Salt and fresh ground pepper


  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet or baking dish. (Instead of oiling the pan, you could also line with parchment paper).
  • In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mustard, and the cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place salmon onto a baking sheet then spread two tablespoons of sour cream mixture on top of each salmon filet.
  • Bake 10 to 15 minutes until barely done in the center at the thickest part of the salmon. The center should be firm, but with a small amount of uncooked salmon in the very center. Depending on how thick the salmon is, it may need a few minutes longer. (The internal temperature should be around 125 degrees F).
  • Remove from oven then cover lightly with aluminum foil and let rest 5 to 10 minutes. During this time, the salmon will continue to cook.
