Salmon is a fatty fish that contains significant amounts of B vitamins, proteins and omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon will spoil quickly and is often frozen to preserve its freshness. Thawing frozen salmon can require as much as 24 hours of refrigeration. To cut time, you can cook frozen salmon without thawing it in the oven. The flavor and consistency will remain comparable to salmon that was thawed prior to cooking. Approximately five minutes per ounce of weight is required to cook frozen salmon, not including oven-preheating time. This recipe is for one salmon fillet.

Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil, and place the baking pan into the oven. Allow the salmon fillet to bake for approximately five minutes per ounce of weight. For example, if you have an 8-oz. salmon fillet, bake it for about 40 minutes. When done, the salmon’s flesh should flake easily with a fork.
