Healthy Life - This Dijon baked salmon is one of my favorite easy salmon recipes. It’s incredibly flavorful and the Dijon topping keeps the salmon moist, light and flaky. It’s the perfect healthy dinner recipe and can be made in under 30 minutes.
1 1/2 lbs salmon (King, Sockeye or Coho salmon)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp avocado oil
3 garlic cloves, fine
1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/4 cup Dijon mustardly chopped
salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
Place the salmon on a parchment lined baking tray and set it aside.
Mix together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and generously coat the top of the salmon.
Bake the salmon for 18-20 minutes (depending on size and thickness), then slice it into individual portions and serve immediately.
You could easily make this recipe with 4-6 individual salmon fillets, rather than one large fillet.
If you’re following Whole30, I recommend this Dijon mustard which is Whole30 compliant. I also have many more Whole30 recipes in the recipe index.
And if you’re looking for some tasty meal prep recipes, this Dijon baked salmon is always tops on my list. I’ll gladly eat this salmon several days in a row!
