Baked Salmon Recipe

Servings: 4 people 1 1/2 lb salmon fillet, cut into 4 filets 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped 2 Tbsp extra light olive oil, or vegetable oil 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 3 garlic cloves, minced, pressed, or grated 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard 1/2 tsp fine sea salt 1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly cracked 1/2 lemon, sliced into 4 rings for garnish

Ingredients

Preheat oven to 450°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone liner, parchment, or foil.

Instructions

Arrange salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side-down. In a small bowl, add the marinade ingredients: parsley, garlic, oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. 

 Stir to combine. Generously spread the marinade, brushing over the top and sides of the salmon then top each piece with a slice of lemon.

Bake uncovered at 450°F for 12-15 min or until just cooked through, flaky, and the

 salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145˚F at the thickest portion on an instant-read thermometer. Do not over-cook.
