This chimichurri salmon recipe is extremely flavorful, healthy, and easy to make. Put the chimichurri sauce on salmon and just about anything you serve with it!


  • 1 1/22 lbs salmon, cut into 4 pieces
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 cup parsley
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  1. On a plate, squeeze lemon juice over the salmon pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a glass baking dish with parchment paper. Place salmon pieces in the baking dish, and bake for 10-15 minutes until salmon is opaque in the middle.
  3. While the salmon bakes, prepare chimichurri. Add all ingredients except the olive oil to a food processor. Pulse 5-10 times to finely chop all the ingredients.
  4. Add the olive oil, and pulse a few more times to combine everything. You want the ingredients to be finely chopped but still textural.
  5. Spread a generous amount of chimichurri on each piece of salmon to serve. Add extra chimichurri to veggies, grains, etc. 


When baking salmon, a general rule of thumb for timing is: 10 minutes for every inch the fish is thick. For example, if the fish is 1.5 inches thick, bake for 15 minutes.
