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.
