small mixing bowl
- 2 lb salmon filet
- 2 lb broccoli florets
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper
Honey Dijon Salmon Marinade
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1½ tablespoons grainy Dijon mustard optional but recommended
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons dill
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat Oven to 400°F [205°C]
Separate broccoli into florets and coat liberally with olive oil salt and pepper.
Spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes while you prepare the salmon filet.
Honey Dijon Salmon
Start by mixing together the honey Dijon marinade. In a bowl, combine, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, grainy Dijon mustard (optional), honey, dill, lemon juice.
Remove broccoli from the oven after 20-25 minutes, is should be just starting to crisp. Carefully push partially cooked broccoli to the sides of the pan to make room for the salmon filet.
Lay salmon filet skin side down on the pan and slowly run your fingers in all directions over the filet to check for bones.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper, and spoon over desired amount of marinade until well covered.
Return the sheet pan to the oven to cook the salmon for 12-15 minutes (for medium to medium rare) until the salmon is just cooked through and slightly opaque.
Optional but recommended last step is to turn on the oven broiler for the final 2-3 minutes of cooking to brown the top of the salmon.
Remove from the oven, check for doneness and serve with fresh parsley and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
OMG Honey! I know not everyone who is following a keto or low carb diet will be cool with using honey, and that's cool too. Omit it, substitute it, or come up with your own marinade, this recipe will turn out amazing all the same. Don't feel the need to use every drop of the marinade. I used about 2/3 of the marinade for a large filet, them remaining marinade can be used as a dip or to marinade vegetables Salmon cooks fast! 12-15 minutes lands you a medium-medium rare filet. If that's not enough for you simply cook for 1-2 minutes longer until desired doneness is reached.
