Do you like 30 minute meals? You will love this one! Salmon is my favorite fish. I’m not much for fish in general unless it is seafood, but I do love salmon. This recipe for Baked Salmon has a lovely honey Dijon mustard and garlic sauce that compliments it well.
Baked Salmon with Honey Dijon and Garlic Sauce
The recipe is very easy to do. I make the marinade early in the day and then just pop the whole thing in the oven when it’s dinner time.
Assemble your ingredients. You will need
- 2 salmon fillets
- Kosher Salt and black pepper
- 2 tbsp of dijon mustard
- 3 cloves of garlic – minced
- 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 2-3 tbsp of fresh parsley
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- zest of 1/2 lemon
Preheat the oven to 425 º F and place the salmon in a baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Combine the other ingredients for the marinade/sauce.
Coat the salmon with the marinade. (you can then put in the fridge until dinner time or cook it right now.)
Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes. Serve with a salad and baked potato for a great week night meal.
