What’s for dinner? Garlic Dijon Baked Salmon

We all know that salmon is good for you!

Even our kids love the taste of salmon! Our daughter can’t get enough salmon sashimi on Sushi Night, but that’s an occasional treat.

Here’s what I made:

Garlic Dijon Baked Salmon

Garlic Dijon Baked Salmon

Ingredients:

1.5 lbs salmon fillets (I used wild coho)
2 Tbsp parsley, freshly chopped
2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 cup light olive oil
2 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
Lemon slices

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 450° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

In a small bowl, mix together: 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, 2-3 pressed cloves garlic, ½ Tbsp Dijon mustard, ½ tsp salt, ⅛ tsp of pepper, ⅛ cup of olive oil and 2 Tbsp of lemon juice.

Slice salmon into even portions. Lay them onto a lined baking dish with the skin-side-down.

Generously brush all sides of salmon with sauce and top with fresh slices of lemon.

Bake at 450°F for 12-15 min or until just cooked through and flaky. Don’t over-cook or it will be dry.

Serve with rice and your favourite veggies.

Another winner here! The kids wanted seconds!
