I don’t serve a ton of seafood in my house.
Partially because it is expensive and partially because seafood has a bad and undeserved reputation as being high maintenance and hard to prepare. Also, because my crew can be pretty picky about it.
This dijon mustard salmon is anything but high maintenance though. And this baked salmon recipe is loaded with restaurant quality flavor.
It’s just as delicious as any salmon on the menu at any restaurant.
The Easiest Baked Salmon Ever
Not only is this salmon packed full of so much flavor, but it is unbelievably easy to make. You only need a few basic ingredients for this simple but savory fish recipe.
To make this dijon mustard salmon you need:
- dijon mustard
- lemon juice
- vegetable oil
- minced garlic
- salt and pepper
That’s it! Nothing hard to find. Everything but the fish itself, I always have on hand too.
You can use fresh of frozen salmon filets in this recipe, but I whole-heartedly recommend springing for fresh filets. Or a fresh slab that you cut into pieces yourself. Fresh just tastes, well fresher.
If using frozen salmon filets, make sure they’re completely thawed before proceeding with the recipe as written.
Similarly, you can use skin on or skin off salmon. That’s totally up to personal preference.
Me? I want somebody else to have pulled that thing off my fish, and done all the ‘prep’ work for me- so I always buy boneless, skinless. I’m squeamish & I know it.
How to Make Dijon Mustard Salmon
With so few ingredients, you can bet that making this scrumptious salmon is so easy!
Preheat the oven to 375. Next, line a baking pan with parchment paper. Then you can put your salmon fillets on the pan, skin side down.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix them together with a fork or a whisk until evenly combined.
After that, pour the mixture over the salmon using a spatula to scrape the bowl and then spread it out evenly over the top of the fish.
Then bake the salmon for 20 minutes and enjoy!
What to Serve with Dijon Mustard Salmon
It would also be fantastic with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
You could even serve it over a big salad. Or you can totally keep things simple and just serve it as is with a side of plain wild rice. You really can’t go wrong, whichever option you choose.
