Let’s Get Cooking: Baked Garlic & Dijon Salmon




1 1/2 lbs Salmon


2 Large or 3 small garlic cloves
1 Lemon, slices
2 tbsp Parsley


1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp Lemon juice, fresh

Baking & Spices

1/8 tsp Black pepper, ground
1/2 tsp Salt

Oils & Vinegars

1/8 cup Olive oil, mild


How to Make the Best Baked Salmon:
Preheat the oven to 450˚F.

1. Line a rimmed baking sheet  with foil. I  didn’t line the dish and later regretted it while I scrubbed fiercely for a day and a half.

2. In a small bowl,mix together: 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, 2-3 pressed cloves garlic, 1.5 tsp Dijon mustard, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp of pepper, 1/8 cup of olive oil and 2 Tbsp of lemon juice.  Smell it; it’s simply amazing!

3. Slice salmon into even portions: I ended up with 4 generous cuts of salmon. Lay them onto a lined baking dish with the skin-side-down.

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

5. 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.
