Dijon Crusted Salmon Recipe – 3 ingredients


2 Servings
Serving Size:146g
* Optional Substitution Note
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar
    • brown sugar or raw cane sugar
    • Divide the sugar into 2 equal portions
  • 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.


Step 1

Set oven to 350F / 177C.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Remove from the oven and serve immediately while hot!

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
