It does not get much easier — or more delicious — than this ultra-fast salmon. The sweetness of the maple balances the tangy mustard; smoked paprika or ground chipotle adds another layer of flavor. When you buy your salmon, ask at the fish counter to have the salmon cut into four 4-ounce fillets with the skin removed.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika or ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 4-oz skinless, center-cut, wild-caught salmon fillets

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
  3. Combine mustard, maple syrup, paprika (or chipotle), pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
  4. Place salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Spread the mustard mixture evenly on the salmon.
  6. Roast until just cooked through (approx. 8-12 minutes).
