Salmon is such an easy fish to prepare, tastes great and is super nutritious. Salmon is low in mercury and packed with healthy omega-3 fat. Buy wild over farmed, if available!

  1. 4 6-oz skinless salmon filets
  2. 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
  3. 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. ¾ cup Panko bread crumbs
  6. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  7. 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  8. 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  9. Freshly ground black pepper
  10. Sea salt, optional
  11. Lemon slices for garnish

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large baking dish with non-stick olive cooking oil. In a small bowl whisk together mustard, honey and garlic. In another bowl, mix the bread crumbs, parsley and lemon zest. Then drizzle in the olive oil to the bread crumb mixture and mix. Brush the top of each salmon filet with the honey mixture then dip in the bread crumb mixture to coat. Layer salmon filets in a single layer on a baking dish in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes until salmon is cooked through. Serve warm with lemon wedges.
