baked salmon with lemon and mustard

We try to eat salmon about once a week in our house.  Its my absolute favorite fish.  It’s something all my kids love too. Finding something everyone loves is not easy, especially with toddlers.

I like how remarkably easy it is to prep this dish, resulting in a perfectly cooked fish with barely any effort. It’s seriously so flaky, light, and healthy.  Mustard and lemon gives the salmon fillets such an amazing flavor.

We recently had this two days in a row, so yummmy!

I love to serve this fish alongside steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes, and sometimes with fluffy cilantro lime rice. Try not to over bake these or else you will end up with dry texture.

You will need:

  • 1.5 lb salmon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 heaping tsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 cup chopped cilantro, packed
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 450 F. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients except salt and pepper. Place the salmon fillets on baking tray and generously season with salt and black pepper. Brush the mustard lemon mixture on each fillet. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 15 mins or until done.
