Dijon Salmon

Healthy Balance Quick and Easy Whole30

Right now I’m experimenting with Keto, but really, I shouldn’t need an excuse like that to have some salmon.  Doing my meal plan for the week, I thought the fatty salmon would be the perfect fish to enjoy.

Ingredients for Dijon Salmon with roasted asparagus
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  When preparing baking sheets, I tend to prefer a quick spritz of cooking spray, but since I’m coating my fish with a sauce, it’s a little messier, so I do use parchment paper for this recipe. 
Dijon coating for the salmon
Make the coating for the salmon.  In a small bowl, combine the parsley, mustard, lemon juice, avocado oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Salmon, being coated for baking.
Place the salmon on baking sheet.  Coat the fillets with the mixture.  The mix has a nice thickness to it, so you can coat with a spoon or knife.  Be liberal with the coating and cover the top and sides.  Remember, you’re using parchment paper – easy clean up! 
Place the salmon in the oven for baking.  Depending on the size and thickness of the filets, this should take between 15 and 20 minutes.  The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.  Serve immediately.
Asparagus on a baking sheet 
Want a quick and easy side to go with the salmon?  Just get a bunch of asparagus and a shallot.  Trim the asparagus and lay the spears out on a second baking sheet.  Then take a shallot and slice it thinly.  Place shallots in a small bowl, and combine with oregano and oil.  Sprinkle the oil and shallots over the asparagus.  Place this sheet into the oven with salmon.
