One of my favourite weeknight recipes is Baked Salmon! It’s super nutritious, quick and easy to make. Change it up by trying new salmon recipes and pairing with different sides!
Plate ½ veggies, ¼ plate protein, ¼ plate complex carbs + some healthy fat = to make a satisfying and balanced meal!
Makes 3 servings
3 salmon fillets
1 tablespoon of avocado mayo
1 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese
2 tsp of minced garlic
Juice of 1 fresh lemon
2 tbsp of olive oil (do not use extra virgin olive oil for high temperatures)
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix avocado mayo, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese and juice of 1 lemon. Blend well.
Place salmon fillets in a glass oven proof dish with oil
Rub salmon with minced garlic, salt and pepper. Pour mustard cheese mixture on top and spread evenly on each fillet
Cook for 13-15 minutes uncovered
Sprinkle with your favourite herbs ( I topped with parsley)
* Serve salmon with your choice of sides. I grilled some corn with asparagus & roasted pumpkins, potatoes & yam in the oven for a balanced, complete meal!
