This cooking method makes for rich, buttery fish every time.
MAKES: 2-3 SERVINGS
TOTAL TIME: 30 MINUTES
1 1/2 pounds fresh salmon fillet (preferably one piece)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
2 lemons, thinly sliced
1/4 to 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
2. Add salmon fillet to a small, oven-proof baking dish. Brush evenly with Dijon mustard; sprinkle with brown sugar, salt and pepper.
3. Tile lemon slices on top of salmon, covering the entire fillet. Pour enough olive oil into the dish to gather up along the sides of the fish.
4. Bake salmon until it flakes gently with a fork (about 18 to 20 minutes); serve with more lemon wedges.
