Healthy Dijon glazed salmon that will give you that kick in the butt to swim upstream!



When it comes to improving your health, salmon or fish in general is the kick in the face you need! Salmon is loaded with immune-boosting, metabolic-health improving omega-3 fatty acids. Therefore, the best thing you can do to improve your health is to make fish a regular part of your diet. In addition to improving your health, this is one of those foods that can aid in weight loss, help you retain muscle and help you get fit.


There are many ways to prepare salmon, such as grilling, frying, sautéing, smoking, and broiling. But today I’m sharing with you an incredibly easy baked recipe, and one that you’ll likely have on repeat because it's loaded with flavor and easy to make... Dijon salmon.


What is even better about this healthy salmon recipe is that you can change the flavor profile by using a different type of Dijon mustard. Personally, I tend to incorporate stone-ground Dijon because it adds a bit more texture. But if you want it more creamy, then a simple spicy brown Dijon will do the job, too.


Another way to change up the flavor profile or reducing the calories in the meal is by changing the type of fish. Did you know that farm raised salmon has more calories than most of the salmons out there? So if you want to lower the calories, look into wild caught, sockeye, or coho! Not only will your calories be reduced, but the quality tends to improve.


So instead of belaboring this, let's get a bakin'!



Healthy Dijon Salmon Ingredients:


1 lb of Salmon

2 tbsp stone-ground Dijon mustard

1 tsp lemon juice

Directions: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the mustard, parsley, lemon juice, and garlic in a small bowl. Place salmon on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Coat salmon with the mustard spread. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
