Baked Garlic Dijon Salmon

Baked Garlic Dijon Salmon


Today when I checked my gmail account, I had a glorious email from Whole Foods notifying me that they had Coho Salmon on sale today only.  At that moment, I knew exactly what we would be having for dinner.  I sent the hubs out to our local Whole Foods to grab the goods.  I told him to see if they could remove the skin for us to make cooking easier (tip for those of you buying the seafood counter).  Not only did they remove the skin, but they offered to remove all the pin bones.  My husband watched the gentleman behind the counter meticulously remove each of the bones, one by one with a smile on his face.  Let me tell you…this made the whole cooking process a breeze!  High level of customer service is not something you find in every grocery store however, this is where Whole Foods really shines above the rest.  Makes my heart grow even founder for my favorite grocery store!

This delicious salmon is topped and baked with a garlicky dijon sauce that is going to knock your socks off!  This recipe in not only ridiculously easy to make but it is jam packed with flavor and is Whole30 compliant.  My husband raved about it over and over as we were eating this evening.

Pair with steamed veggies or zucchini noodles and get your omega-3’s on with this delicious salmon tonight!



  • 1 – 1 1/2 lbs of salmon (I used Coho)
  • 4 tablespoons of grass fed butter (melted) or olive oil (use Ghee or Olive Oil to for Whole30)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoons of freshly chopped Italian (flat leaf) Parsley (can substitute for dried parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Combine butter, ghee, or olive oil, dijon mustard, garlic, parsley,  salt, ground pepper, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl and whisk ingredients together well.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes for flavors to merry.
  2. Place salmon filets on a greased cookie sheet (I used olive oil).  Whisk the sauce again and brush salmon liberally with sauce.Baked Garlic Dijon Salmon
  3. Bake in for 15-17 minutes until fish is firm and flakes easily with a fork.  Serve immediately.

  1. I’m definitely going to try this recipe…sounds amazing! Just one note, most Dijon mustard contains white wine which would make it non-compliant for Whole30. I think there are Dijon’s out there without the wine, but not sure of the brand. I’ll definitely be looking, though. I’m day 4 on my first Whole30.

    1. Thanks Heather! There are some dijon mustards that use white wine vinegar which is Whole30 approved. Definitely gotta read the all labels! I used Annie’s Naturals Organic Dijon Mustard which is compliant. Good luck on your Whole30!
