Recipe: Baked Maple Dijon Salmon
An easy delicious way to prepare salmon baked in the oven with a nice light sweet maple Dijon sauce.
4 fresh salmon center-cut filets
3 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and generously spray with non-stick spray.
Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper.
Whisk the maple syrup, mustard, mayonnaise, and lemon juice until well combined.
Divide the sauce in half between two small bowls.
Generously brush both sides of the salmon with the sauce.
Skin side down, place the filets on the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until the center is not raw. * I typically check the salmon at the ten minute mark depending on the thickness.
Remove the salmon from the oven and using a clean spoon or basting brush, generously brush the cooked salmon with the sauce that wasn’t used to originally brush the salmon.
