Are you a condiment person?
Honestly, I really do love dipping my food in things like ketchup, hummus, and recently I’ve been loving dipping my veggies in avocado dill dressing.
That being said, my latest favorite condiment is Dijon Mustard. I love dipping raw veggies in it (you should try it!) topping my salmon cakes with it and I love adding it to my salad for a little extra zing.
As I was planning our Easter menu a couple of weeks ago, I took my love of dijon mustard a step further and decided to pair it with my favorite fish…salmon!
This meal was so good, I had to create it again this week for a couple of reasons:
- It tasted so good
- To take pictures
- So I could share the recipe with you!
Brian and I enjoyed this fish as a main course on Easter, but when we had it the second time around we enjoyed it over a bed of zucchini noodles topped with avocado dill dressing and tomato…so good!
Basically, I don’t think you can go wrong with this dijon dill salmon recipe I hope you enjoy it!!
Dijon Dill Baked Salmon
Yields: 7 salmon fillets
- 4 Tbsp dijon mustard (I always look for a brand with minimal ingredients and zero added sugar)
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tsp red wine vinegar
- 2 tsp dried dill
- a touch of salt to taste (optional)
- 7 fillets of salmon
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients (except the salmon) in a small bowl.
- Place the salmon fillets on a parchment lined or aluminum foil lined baking sheet. This will help with clean up!
- Top the salmon fillets with the dijon sauce.
- Bake at 425 for 15-18 minutes, or until cooked all the way through to about 145 degrees.
- Serve along with your favorite sides (roasted veggies, side salad, brown rice, you pick!)
- Store extra salmon in the fridge for a few days to eat throughout the week.
Let me know if you give the recipe a try!
