If you look at nearly any “healthiest foods on the planet” list … chances are you’ll see SALMON somewhere near the top.
Salmon is packed with protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids (which most of us don’t get enough of).. It is great for your heart and brain …
PLUS, it also contains potassium — an important mineral that helps keep your blood pressure in check. Not to mention many other important micronutrients.
Whenever possible, get wild-caught salmon for this recipe because it’s more nutrient-dense.
Place the salmon skin-side-down on a cutting board and cut it into 4 portions. Place in a baking dish and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut nectar (brags), Dijon mustard, garlic, and oil. Spread about ⅔ of the mixture over the salmon and set the rest aside for later.
Let the salmon marinate for about 15 minutes at room temperature. While it’s marinating, preheat the oven to 400ºF/200ºC. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
When the salmon is ready to go in the oven, place skin-side-down on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the salmon is cooked through.
Remove from the oven and brush the remaining marinade mixture over the salmon.
Serve and enjoy!
