Baked Dijon Salmon

This is a simple and delicious salmon recipe that is ready in under 30 minutes. As a fattier fish loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, salmon doesn’t really need added oil or butter when cooking. The simple mustard sauce keeps the salmon moist and flaky. This is a salmon recipe you can cook on repeat.
