WHAT IS EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING?

Everything bagel seasoning is the best seasoning for salmon. This seasoning is the same that is sprinkled over Everything Bagels.

It is usually a mixture of granulated garlic, onion flakes, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and salt.

You can make your own Everything But the Bagel seasoning or buy Everything But the Bagel seasoning at Trader Joe’s or on Amazon!

If you want to make your own, here is the ratio of seasonings that I use:

  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds (can be a mixture of white and black sesame seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced garlic flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • ½ tablespoon flaked salt.

The crunchy salt paired with the sesame seeds and chunks of dried garlic and onion add a distinct flavor that pairs perfectly with any savory dish and perfect for seasoning salmon!

HOW TO SEASON SALMON

  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 450F. Place parchment paper or a silicone liner on a rimmed baking sheet
  • Step 2: Add the salmon fillets to the baking sheet and top with a thick coating of everything bagel seasoning (about 2 tablespoons).
  • Step 3: If you are adding a veggie, place the vegetable on the baking sheet as well and sprinkle with salt.
  • Step 4: Bake at 450F for 12 minutes.
  • Step 5: Remove and enjoy hot or cold with your favorite sides

WHAT VEGETABLES GO WELL WITH EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING BAKED SALMON?

Since the salmon is only in the oven for about 12 minutes, you will want to choose a quick cooking vegetable.

  • Asparagus
  • Green beans
  • Bite size broccoli florets
  • Thinly sliced carrots
  • Sliced bell pepper

TIPS ON COOKING SALMON

Cooking salmon can seem intimidating but I promise you it’s a very forgiving fish to cook with.

It is important to start with fresh fish. A good rule of thumb is to try to cook your fresh salmon within 48 hours of buying it. If you need it later in the week, freeze it immediately when you get home and defrost it the day before cooking.

I love cooking salmon this way since you don’t have to worry about flipping the salmon or trying to get the skin crispy.

However, if crispy skin is your thing, I do have a recipe for simple 7 minute salmon that starts on the stove and ends under the broiler that you could try this recipe with.

TIP: IF you want to make this everything bagel salmon using the 7 minute salmon method, wait to add the everything bagel seasoning until after broiling or the spices will burn.

HOW TO KNOW THE SALMON IS COOKED?

To know if the salmon is done, press down on the thickest part of the salmon and you should notice that it starts to break apart easily.

If there is a lot of resistance and doesn’t flake, the salmon likely isn’t cooked all the way though and may need an additional minute or two.

HOW TO REMOVE THE SKIN FROM THE SALMON?

Salmon skin can easily be removed from the salmon filet after cooking by simply peeling it off. You can also leave the skin on and just flake the fish away from the skin as you eat.
