(Yield: 2-3 servings)
printer iconPrint this recipe

Ingredients
¾ pound salmon filet
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon prepared whole grain mustard
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon shoyu
2-3 lemon wedges for garnish
Minced parsley for garnish

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 475°F
  2. Rinse the fish and pat dry. Lay skin side down on a parchment lined baking pan. (The parchment prevents the fish from sticking to the pan and greatly reduces cleanup time.)
  3. Cut a 1/2-inch deep crosshatch pattern in the salmon. Season lightly with pepper.
  4. Mix the mustard, maple syrup and shoyu together and smear over the fish. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10-15 minutes, until cooked to desired doneness on the inside. Remove the salmon from the oven and cover with foil or a plate for a few minutes to complete cooking. Cut the salmon into portions and serve with lemon and a sprinkling of parsley.
