Asian Baked Salmon

Fish is an excellent protein to make when you’re trying to eat healthier. We live in an area rich in fresh seafood, especially salmon. We love this marinade so much, we eat it almost weekly. The original recipe is intended for the outdoor grill, but my version is modified for baking in the oven, making it much easier to eat year-round. I also use the ingredients more like a sauce as opposed to a marinade, baking the fish right in the deliciousness!

Asian Baked Salmon
(Original recipe: Ina Garten)

2-3 lbs fresh salmon fillets
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
3 TBSP good soy sauce
6 TBSP good olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced

Whisk together mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, and garlic until well blended. Pour over salmon fillets and bake according to your favorite baked salmon recipe.

I bake in sealed foil packets for 20 minutes at 400F, then uncovered for another 5-10 minutes, depending on doneness. You know your fillet is done once it is no longer translucent and flakes in the center when cut with a fork.
