Dijon Lemon Salmon

Winter. Is. Here. Well, actually, it’s springtime in Hawaii but nevertheless, WINTER IS HERE. As I sit here and contemplate what to write for this wonderful salmon dinner post, all I seem to think about is how everyone is about to DIE in Game of Thrones…. BECAUSE WINTER IS HERE!!!

While I wallow in my woes that one of my favorite TV shows of all time is ending, I also wanted to shared with you with you this epic lemony, garlicky, dijon-y salmon dinner that took like 2 seconds to make and was absolutely delicious!

You know me, I love a quick and easy meal that doesn’t require much thought to put together and that I could eat night after night because of how yummy it was. This is definitely one of those meals! It’s literally as easy as mixing all ingredients (except salmon) in a bowl, and brushing it over the salmon fillets, throwing it in the oven and waiting 15 minutes. Thats it! You could even try marinating the salmon in the sauce overnight for a richer flavor, but it’s totally not necessary, it tastes amazing either way!
