Slow-Roasted Salmon with BBQ Sauce

Slow-Roasted Salmon with BBQ Sauce

The idea behind this Slow-Roasted Salmon with BBQ Sauce is simple. You use a low temperature and cook the salmon a fairly long time (about 25 minutes). When it’s finished a fork inserted in the thickest part of the fish meets with no resistance and the flesh is just beginning to flake when you poke into it. An instant-read thermometer should read no more 120° F.

Slow-Roasted Salmon with BBQ Sauce

Ingredients

  • 6 (6‑oz) skinless salmon fillets
  • sea salt (as needed)
  • BBQ sauce (as needed)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 250°F. Lay the salmon fillets at least 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet and season them with salt. Liberally brush the fillets with BBQ sauce on both sides and place them in the oven on the center rack to roast until the salmon is cooked almost all through at the thickest point, about 25 minutes. You’ll know it’s finished when a fork inserted in the thickest part of the fish meets with no resistance and the flesh is just beginning to flake when you poke into it. An instant-read thermometer should read no more 120° F.

Serve immediately or at room temperature with more BBQ sauce on the side.
