Baked salmon with dijon honey glaze and veggies. This is a staple at our dinner table. One of the kids’ most favorite recipes. I usually serve it with some rice on the side to complete the meal. It’s a no fail recipe and it’s also very popular for friends and family gatherings. “min effort, max result” recipe.
Prep is only 15 min, the oven does the rest.
Toddler tip: scoop away the glaze or place it on the side once cooked. My little one took some time to appreciate the Dijon grains (exposure, exposure, exposure).
5 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 lemon juice
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
pinch of salt
3 tsp honey
4 garlic cloves, minced
Mix well the sauce ingredients and simply pour on top of the salmon. You can use the glaze on top of the veggies too or just season them with olive oil and salt.
Bake in a preheated oven at 400F for 20 min. (Last 5 min in grill mode to obtain a golden glaze)
WHAT KIND OF VEGETABLES I CAN USE?
You have many options: green beans or asparagus are a great choice. I also tried zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms. Butternut squash slices or carrots are an alternative idea too, with a sweet flavor twist.
I would recommend to chop or slice the vegetables in small pieces so that they can cook properly in 20 minutes.
CAN I ADD A CARB SIDE?
I love to pair this recipe with a side of steamed rice for a complete nutritious meal. You can also try some quinoa or couscous.
CAN I USE A DIFFERENT FISH?
I honestly recommend to use salmon. It has a very strong an unique flavor that works really well with the citrusy sauce. If salmon is not an option for you I would suggest a large size fish (Mahi Mahi, Cod) so that the fillet will be thick and meaty.
