maple- mustard salmon. {grain-free & dairy free}

14 November 2011

I have been making this salmon for years. Everybody loves it & there are never any leftovers. It is so easy & rich. It is a great standby recipe, especially for those chilly evenings. 

maple mustard salmon.
serves 4

1 lb wild salmon fillet
Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste 
3TBL of olive oil 
2 TBL pure maple syrup 
2 tsp Dijon mustard

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and lightly oil a lined baking sheet.
  2. Clean the salmon, pat dry, and place at the center of the pan. Squeeze the lemon over the fillet (discard any lemon seeds) and season.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, maple syrup, and mustard. Pour evenly over the salmon.
  4. Place on the top rack of the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes*.Let the fish rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

*I cook the salmon until the center is almost done because once the salmon comes out of the oven it continues to cook, and therefore does not get dry.

happy eatings and cheers!
