Honey Dijon & Garlic Salmon

So I definitely have a bunch of salmon recipes right now, but that's because salmon is such a great part of a healthy diet! Salmon contains Omega-3, an essential fatty acid that cannot be synthesized by the human body and must be obtained by food. Fatty acids like Omega-3 are thought to contribute to healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing. This recipe is fast, inexpensive, and delicious - give it a try for a quick, healthy weeknight meal!

1/8 cup olive oil
Pinch of sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit.

  2. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, parsley, dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, olive oil, & sea salt.

If you're a #lazygirl like me, you can always make a few substitutions, like dried parsley, jarred lemon juice, preminced garlic, honey dijon mustard, etc. The two things in this recipe that I strongly advocate for are using wild-caught fish and local honey. There is conflicting research over what fish is better - wild-caught or farm-raised. I tend fall in the wild-caught camp, but you can make that decision for yourself. Read this. Now, honey can be funny. Literally - "funny honey" is an issue right now in the market. You'll get purer honey and support your local beekeeper by buying local.
