5-Ingredient Easy Baked Salmon
- 2 lb (900 g) salmon, skin on
- 2 Tbsp coconut aminos
- 1½ Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 large clove of garlic, minced
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
Place the salmon skin-side-down on a cutting board and cut into 4 portions. Place in a baking dish and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, Dijon mustard, garlic, and oil. Spread about ⅔ of the mixture over the salmon and set the rest aside for later.
Let the salmon marinate for about 15 minutes at room temperature. While it’s marinating, preheat the oven to 400ºF/200ºC. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
When the salmon is ready to go in the oven, place skin-side-down on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through.
Remove from the oven and brush the remaining marinade mixture over the salmon.
Serve and enjoy!
