Baked Salmon with Garlic and Dijon

Big Sam’s Ingredient: Salmon
Preparation Time: 25 Minutes
  • 1½ lbs salmon fillets (this was a wild sockeye)
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, freshly chopped
  • 2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, pressed
  • ½ Tbsp Dijon mustard (we used grey poupon)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground black pepper
  • ⅛ cup mild olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • 2 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
  • Lemon slices- for effect 🙂

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. There you have it! An easy, excellent dish.
