Baked Salmon with Lemon Garlic Dijon

Eva Amurri shares a recipe for baked salmon with lemon garlic dijon

Easy, healthy, and family-friendly weekday meals are kind of the holy grail these days. I think we’re all growing tired of the meals that are already in our family repertoire. In the new year, I’ve been trying to make an effort to continue to introduce the kids to more recipes we can ALL eat together (instead of making one meal for the grownups, and a different one for the kids). This Baked Salmon recipe with Lemon Garlic Dijon is so delicious, a breeze to whip up, and is totally healthy for the whole family. Plus, my kids love it! Because the fish is so soft, I can even give some to Mateo on his tray so that all of us are included in the meal.

It’s been really nice, and surreal, to be sitting around the table these days with my THREE kids. Now that Mateo is almost a year old, he can really sit and hang during meal times. I can’t help but daydream about when the kids are older and we can actually sit down for a meal and have a meaningful conversation about the topics we are all most passionate about. I know it’s a totally different phase of parenting and I am here for it! At this stage, I gotta say I’m still enjoying the little kisses and hugs waiting for me around every corner. Particularly from my Majy Man. He’s just the snuggliest recently and I love it so much!

Ingredients…
Step by step...

Step 1

Preheat & Portion

Preheat your oven to 450ºF, and place your portioned salmon onto a nonstick baking sheet, and set aside. I’m obsessed with this one from Great Jones, and it’s so affordable!

Step 2

Combine

In a small bowl, combine your EVOO, lemon juice, pressed garlic, dijon, and chopped parsley, salt, and pepper, and mix well.

Step 3

Bake

With a spoon, pour the mixture over the salmon filets, making sure that the tops and sides are generously covered, and then top each filet with a lemon slice.

Step 4

Bake

Bake for a little under 15 minutes, remove from the oven and serve immediately. I like to pair it with a side of sautéed spinach and garlic for a seriously delicious, healthy meal!
