Baked Honey Mustard Salmon

Baked Honey Mustard Salmon

Servings: 4
Cooking Time: 15-20 mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs of wild caught salmon, boneless and skinless
  • 1 Tbsp of fresh parsley leaves, chopped fine
  • 1 batch honey mustard sauce (see directions below)
  • Optional: coconut oil for greasing

Honey Mustard Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup whole grain mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (Here's my favorite brand)
  • 1/8 tsp fresh black pepper
  • Optional garnishes: lemon wedge, parsley

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Prepare your honey mustard sauce by adding all the ingredients into a bowl and whisking together. Set aside.
  3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. (Grease the bottom of the foil with coconut oil to avoid the salmon sticking). 
  4. Brush the honey mustard sauce on top of the salmon, and spread it around evenly.
  5. Fold the sides of the aluminum foil up and over the top of the salmon until it is completely enclosed. (If your sheet of foil is not large enough, just place the second sheet of foil on top and fold the edges so that it forms a sealed packet.)
  6. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until the salmon is almost completely cooked through. (Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your salmon, so I recommend checking it a few minutes early if you have a thinner cut of salmon.) Remove the salmon from the oven and carefully open and pull back the aluminum foil so that the top of the fish is completely exposed. (Be careful of the hot steam!) 
  7. Change the oven setting to broil, then return the fish to the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes. (Keep a close eye on the salmon while broiling, though, to be sure that the sauce does not burn.)
  8. Remove salmon from the oven. Sprinkle the top of the salmon evenly with parsley, and serve immediately.
