Easy BBQ salmon is a 2-ingredient recipe that can be grilled or oven roasted. It’s perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or for meal prepping healthy lunches!


  • 4 (6 oz.) salmon filets
  • 1/2 cup prepared BBQ sauce


Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.

Place salmon on baking sheet and brush each filet with about 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce. (See notes.)

Bake salmon for 10-15 minutes or until desired doneness (it will depend on the thickness of your salmon).

Serve for dinner or use for salads, wraps and grain bowls.

Recipe Notes

I usually roast our salmon but you could grill this as well.

I use a plain/original-style BBQ sauce but you could certainly change this up and use a flavored BBQ sauce.

If you really love BBQ sauce like I do, you can brush it with some extra sauce after it’s cooked or only use part of the sauce before baking and save the rest for serving.
