🥫 Storing and Reheating

To store this easy baked salmon recipe, bring it to room temperature and place it in an airtight container or resealable bag.

To reheat leftover salmon, it’s best to heat it slowly in the oven so it doesn’t overcook. Place the salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 275°F for about 15 minutes.

Additionally, to keep the salmon moist, add melted butter or olive oil over the salmon before reheating. I can do it.

If you need to reheat the salmon in the microwave, be sure to cover it with a paper towel or lid and use the lowest microwave setting for about 30 seconds. Then flip the salmon over and microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
