Whole Grain Mustard Crusted Salmon

Image

I am a huge fan of salmon! (This wont be my last post on the subject) One of my favorite ways to make this lovely meaty fish, is to combine it with the acidic flavors of mustard and lemon.

Ingredients:

2 Fillets of Salmon ( around 6 ounces each)

2 Tbsp Whole Grain Mustard

2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Squeeze one lemon until you have about 2 tablespoons of juice.

Combine with whole grain and Dijon mustard, and a little salt and pepper.

Lay salmon fillets on a baking sheet. (I like to line it with aluminum foil for easy clean up! )

Image

Coat the top of each fillet with the lemon mustard sauce and pop into the oven for 10 minutes for a slightly pink center. Leave it in the oven for 15 minutes to cook the fish through. It’s that easy and super healthy!

I served this salmon over sauteed zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and basil. Stay tuned for that recipe later this week!
