Discover the perfect balance of flavors with this oven-roasted salmon. This dish is not only simple to prepare but also brimming with the natural taste and nutrients of fresh salmon, making it an ideal meal for health-conscious food lovers and seafood enthusiasts alike.



  1. Begin by boiling 2 1/2 cups of water in a saucepan. Once boiling, stir in the rice, then lower the heat. Cover the saucepan and let the rice simmer for 20 minutes until cooked through.
  2. While the rice is cooking, set your oven to warm up to a temperature of 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Take a large baking dish and pour a small amount of water in it, just enough to cover the base. Carefully place the salmon in the center of the dish with the pink flesh facing upwards. Surround the salmon with the previously cooked rice, creating a ring around it. Gently pour orange juice over both the salmon and the rice.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, blend together the dill weed, rosemary, basil, mustard, and lemon pepper to create a flavorful herb mixture. Once mixed, sprinkle this blend evenly over the salmon and rice.
  5. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil to lock in moisture and flavor.
  6. Place the covered dish into the oven and allow it to bake for a duration of 30 to 40 minutes. You’ll know the salmon is ready when it’s tender to the touch and flakes apart easily.
  7. Enjoy your beautifully baked salmon, infused with the zest of herbs and the tang of orange, paired with fluffy rice for a satisfying meal.


  • – For a healthier option, consider using low-sodium soy sauce.
    – The salmon can be marinated for up to 2 hours prior to baking for enhanced flavor.
    – Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and are great for salads or sandwiches.
