French Baked Salmon

This recipe is great because it’s quick, simple, and delicious. It seriously took no time at all. Like most fish fillets, it doesn’t take much time to cook. I literally had to wait longer for my oven to preheat than to cook the salmon. I served this with a healthy side of steamed string beans.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Cook To: 450° F

Servings: 2 people


  • 2  1/2 lb salmon fillets
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp light olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 450˚F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with tinfoil. This is very important so the fish doesn’t stick to the baking sheet and there’s no chance of burning either.

In a small bowl, combine the parsley, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice.

Lay the salmon fillets onto the prepared baking sheet, skin-side-down.

Generously brush the top and sides of the salmon with the sauce.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through and flaky.
