Dijon Crusted Salmon Recipe – 3 ingredients
- 1 tablespoon Dijon
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- Divide the sugar into 2 equal portions
- brown sugar or raw cane sugar
10oz (wild) salmon, center cut
- I used 5oz filets
- spray olive oil
- pinch of sea salt & pepper
1 tablespoon avocado oil
- You can use any type of oil but I highly recommend neutral flavored oil with a high smoke point.
Set oven to 350F / 177C.
Mix together the ingredients for the sauce, using only 1/2 of the measured coconut sugar, and set aside.
Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel. Lightly spray with oil then sprinkle on sea salt & pepper.
Set a stainless steel, cast iron, or carbon steel pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the oil and then add the salmon skin-side UP.
Sear in the skillet for about 3 minutes, or until the salmon easily lifts off the skillet. Then flip the salmon over.
Remove the skillet from the heat and rub on sauce on top of the salmon. Then sprinkle the remaining coconut sugar on top.
Bake for 3 – 6 minutes in the oven, or until you reach your desired level of doneness.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately while hot!
Enjoy with your choice of grain and vegetable – I’m using basmati rice and steamed broccoli.
