Simple Salmon Recipe

>> Tuesday, April 6, 2010

This is one of my go to recipes. It's simple, healthy and only requires three ingredients!

Ingredients (serves two)

  • 2 6-8oz salmon filets (with the skin on, you don't have to but I think it adds a lot of flavor)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup djion mustard
Directions
First, set your oven to broil and heat a skillet to medium and lightly coat the pan in a little extra virgin olive oil.
In a bowl mixture together orange juice and djion mustard.
Salt and pepper salmon filets. Place the filets in the skillet skin side down. After about two minutes flip, then remove after two minutes. We are not fully cooking the salmon here, just trying to get the skin crispy and some nice color.
Remove salmon and start brushing on the orange juice/mustard mixture.
Once coated (I like to get the sides and everything) place in the oven for about 5-7 minutes.
Salmon is easy to over cook, so make sure you are watching. Once done the salmon should have a nice crust from the mustard on top and a flaky tenderness.
Serve with your favorite vegetable (green beans are great!) and you have a healthy dinner that is ready to go in about 20 minutes!
