Baked Salmon with Garlic and Dijon


I readily admit to a general preference for meat that is red, but Lisa says I have to eat fish too.  My preference, in the fish world, is Salmon.  It’s tender, flaky and, when prepared well, really quite tasty.
Here’s a quick, and simple recipe for Salmon.  It’s delicious and, according to Lisa, good for you too!

Use These…
  • 1½ lbs salmon fillets (this was a wild sockeye)
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, freshly chopped
  • 2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1.5 tsp Dijon mustard (we used grey poupon)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground black pepper
  • ⅛ cup mild olive oil (not extra virgin)

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

Buttered up and ready to go

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

Baked

Bake at 450°F for 12-15 min or until just cooked through. Be very careful not to overcook the salmon! It should be moist and flaky.
