In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper to make the marinade.


Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag.


Pour the marinade over the salmon, making sure it is evenly coated. Cover or seal the dish/bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.


Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).


Remove the salmon from the marinade and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Reserve the marinade.


Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. The baking time will depend on the thickness of the salmon fillets.


While the salmon is baking, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes until slightly reduced and thickened. This will be the drizzling sauce for the salmon.


Once the salmon is done baking, remove it from the oven and drizzle the reduced marinade over the top.


Garnish with lemon slices and fresh parsley, if desired.


Serve the Lemon Garlic Baked Salmon immediately with your favorite side dishes, such as steamed vegetables or a fresh green salad.
