Short on time? This 10-minute baked salmon recipe is an ultra quick dinner, paired with a bright green chimichurri sauce.

When we do opt for meat or fish, we look for it to be sustainably raised where possible.

Here, we’ve created a 10-minute baked salmon recipe and paired it with the perfect sauce for salmon: chimichurri sauce. What’s chimichurri? Chimichurri is a bright green parsley and garlic sauce that originates from Argentina and Uruguay. It comes out a beautiful neon green and it tastes garlicky and fresh. Best of all, it’s simple to make: just throw all the ingredients in a blender! To blend our chimichurri sauce, we’ve used the Ambiano Professional Nutrition Blender; this blender is available at ALDI.

To make it an entire meal, we paired it with chimichurri sauce and cumin-roasted potatoes. You can roast them all on the same sheet if you prefer. The potatoes take 35 minutes in total; just throw the salmon on in the last 10 minutes. It’s perfect for a quick weeknight meal that looks incredibly impressive with minimal effort.

For the salmon*

  • 1 1/2 pounds Fresh Atlantic Salmon Side
  • Kosher salt
  • Stonemill Ground Black Pepper

For the chimichurri

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems, tightly packed (about 1 large bunch)
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves and tender stems, tightly packed (about 1 large bunch)
  • 2 green onions (tops only)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup SimplyNature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon SimplyNature Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Several grinds Stonemill Ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. While the oven preheats, let the salmon sit at room temperature.
  2. Generously sprinkle the salmon with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake the salmon for about 10 minutes until flaky and just cooked; test it with a fork to assess doneness. Watch the salmon to make sure not to overcook; the timing can vary based on the thickness of the salmon and variations between ovens.
  4. Meanwhile, make the chimichurri: Slice off the tops of the green onions. In a blender, blend all ingredients until a smooth sauce forms, (if necessary, stop and mix the ingredients to allow them to fully blend).
  5. To serve, drizzle the salmon with chimichurri, and serve with potatoes.
