Bagel seasoning perfect for salmon

I was looking for a simple way to spice up salmon fillets and a bottle of everything bagel seasoning on my spice shelf smiled up at me. The spices are a perfect addition to the rich salmon. It’s more than just for bagels now and is becoming a favorite spice for many different recipes.

By the way, I had some leftover salmon in the fridge, and it tasted great at room temperature the next day. You can make it in advance or make extra for another dinner.

To complete the meal, serve a bag of washed, ready-to-eat salad.


  • Everything bagel seasoning can be found in the spice section of the market.
  • You can sprinkle leftover spice on cooked vegetables, in rice or try it on a grilled cheese sandwich.

Everything Bagel Savory Salmon

Turn salmon over and spoon the olive oil over the top. Sprinkle everything bagel seasoning evenly over the salmon. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. When a knife is inserted, the flesh should be opaque, not translucent. Do not overcook. A meat thermometer should read 155 degrees.
