Here is another delicious Salmon recipe and so super easy. I made this for dinner the other night and it was ready in no time and tasted truly delicious.It is light and easy, it doesn’t get much easier than this. The whole recipe took less than 1/2 hour to prep and cook! Depending on how thick your salmon is it could take no more than 10 minutes to fully cook right in the oven. Very few ingredients and a perfect dinner casual enough for just you and your family and can be bumped up to serve to guests. This is a winner.Last night I served with potatoes and a salad. Almost any side dish will do alongside this. The other night made it with roasted red potatoes and burnt brussels.
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 heaping Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice (app. 1 average size lemon)
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper ( about 1/4 tsp. of each)
4 pieces Salmon fillets ( app. 6 oz. each) with skin on
*sprinkle a little fresh thyme if you’d like!!! and you can use a sprinkle of dried thyme as well.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray to facilitate removal of fish not to mention clean-up.
In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. I used a mini whisk and it came together beautifully.
Place Salmon, skin side down in a baking dish , and spoon mustard glaze over each piece of fish. Bake until salmon is just cooked through and no longer red, 6 – 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillet. I then turned on the broiler for a few minutes, check to see if fish is done before doing this. You don’t want it over-cooked. I cooked in oven for 6 minutes and then broiled for 4. It was done to perfection. You don’t have to do the broiler you can just cook the salmon in the oven for about 10 minutes. You might want to check on it depending on the thickness of your filet.
Sometimes I just put lemon slices on the salmon before I cook it– gives it a more lemony flavor and looks very pretty and I happen to have a lot of lemons in the house.
Voila! done and enjoy. I served this time with a delicious lentil side dish.
