We all know that fish is good for us, right?
It’s loaded with healthy fats! Yay, omega-3s! It’s low in calories! It’s high in protein! It’s packed with nutrients! It can lower your blood pressure! It makes a satisfying meal!
We’ve all heard it before, but, if you’re like me, you’re still not eating fish on the regular. Sure, I love ordering scallops or salmon steak when I’m out at a restaurant, but I never make it at home… until recently! And, let me tell you, it was so easy to make and turned out great! So, if you’re looking to incorporate some fish into your diet, here’s a super simple salmon recipe to try! (FYI: It would work with other fish varieties too!)
Baked Salmon With Brown Sugar and Dijon Mustard Glaze
- 1 pound salmon fillet (I used fresh, but defrosted frozen would work too)
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1.5 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- salt + pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk together brown sugar, honey, mustard, soy sauce, and butter in a small bowl.
Spray a cooking sheet with non-stick spray and then place the salmon fillet skin side down. Pour 3/4 of the glaze onto the fillet and set the rest aside.
Use a brush to fully coat the fillet.
Bake the fillet for approximately 15-20 minutes in the oven or until the salmon is flaky when using a fork. When the salmon is finished cooking, pour the remaining glaze on top and dig in!
