Delicious, Easy To Make Baked Salmon Recipe


 
This has officially become one of my favorite dishes to make. It's easy, it's healthy and it's sooooo good. Last night was the first time I made this because B and I are now really serious about getting fit and healthy in time for the wedding!

I'm actually very determined to be at the best shape of my life for the wedding and have told B about my goals. Here's how the conversation went:

Miles: I will be at the best shape of my life for the wedding!

B: What happens after the wedding?

Miles: ............

(Insert Twilight Zone music)

ANYWAY.
 
This dish is not only really simple to make, it's also very, very delicious! B even sent me a message soon after he ate it for lunch at work just to give praise--yup, it's THAT good.
 

Ingredients
  • 1 lb salmon filet
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1.5 tsp mustard (I used Inglehoffer Stone Ground Mustard. It's the best so and I strongly believe it made the difference in taste)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • Lemon slices


 

 

Cooking Directions

 1. Preheat the over to 450 degrees F

2. Slice the salmon into even parts
 

3. In a shallow bowl, combine 2 tbsp parsley, 2 tbsp lemon juice 3 cloves of crushed garlic, 1.5 tsp mustard, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 cup olive oil and mix well.
 

 


4. Generously wrap your salmon with the mix and top them with the lemon slices!
 

5. Bake the salmon for 15 minutes (be sure not to overcook it!)

6. Serve with brown rice and string beans and wait for the praises!
 

I love this recipe so much that we're putting it on our regular lunch/dinner rotation. Let me know if you've tried this recipe and if you have additional recommendations!
