- Allow the salmon to marinate in the refrigerator for an hour, turning half way through. Preheat the oven to 375º F. Pour the salmon and the marinade into an oven proof baking dish and bake, covered for 20-25 minutes. The salmon is done when it flakes easily at the thickest part. I removed the foil for the last 10 minutes.
