Honey Dijon Baked Salmon

This easy Honey Dijon Baked Salmon recipe is our new favorite! The salmon is cooked in a honey, Dijon and garlic glaze. It comes together in just 10 minutes. This delicious salmon recipe is perfect for a fancy dinner but it's also easy enough for a weeknight meal! Make it with me!

As most of you know, I spent a week in Alaska this summer fishing for Salmon and Halibut! We shipped home about a hundred pounds of fish and I have been loving it! I love creating new fish recipes and this recipe is one of my favorites! The sauce is simple and easy to throw together and the salmon tastes amazing! We served it with a side of asparagus and over a bed of brown rice! 

Salmon is such a light and healthy protein. It's awesome for counting calories and macros! I have many more salmon recipes coming to the blog soon and I can't wait to share them with you!
