The Best Baked Salmon Recipe

1.5 lbs salmon (this was wild sockeye salmon)
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 large OR 3 small cloves of garlic, pressed
1.5 tsp Dijon mustard (grey poupon)
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 cup mild olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Lemon slices
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
1. Line a rimmed baking dish with foil. I  didn’t line the dish and I regretted it; I scrubbed fiercely for a day and a half.
2. In a small bowl, combine 2 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley, 2-3 cloves pressed garlic, 1.5 tsp dijon, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 1/8 cup olive oil and 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice. Mix well. Smell it; it’s amazing!
3. Cut salmon into even portions: I made 4 generous cuts of salmon. Lay them onto your lined baking dish skin side down.
4. Generously brush all sides of your salmon with the sauce and top with fresh lemon slices.
5. Bake at 450 °F for 12-15 minutes or until just cooked through. Don’t over-cook or your fish will be dry. Voila! Easy, excellent dish.
