INGREDIENTS FOR SHEET PAN MUSTARD SALMON

  • Green beans: You can use frozen green beans, too, but you may want to thaw them first to avoid soggy green beans. String beans, also called string beans, are slightly crunchy with fiber.
  • Garlic: Freshly minced garlic adds a natural savory flavor to this maple-glazed salmon. The garlic balances out the sweet flavors and makes this easy salmon sheet pan dinner so delicious.
  • Salt and Pepper: Sea salt and black pepper are a classic duo that provide a ton of flavor. I like to use freshly cracked black pepper for the best flavors and a fine, natural Kosher sea salt.
  • Olive oil: A great vegetable oil that can be used at high temperatures, high quality olive oil has natural aromatic flavors that are robust and so delicious.
  • Salmon filets: Two six-ounce salmon filets are the perfect sizes for this Dijon salmon. The salmon is cooked in no time so you will not have to wait long at all. If you are using frozen salmon filets, then you will want to thaw the salmon in cool running water just before baking.
  • Dijon mustard: Tangy and grainy Dijon mustard is a bold ingredient for the sweet and savory glaze that coats the salmon. I like Dijon because it is so flavorful and rich but yellow or honey mustard can also work for this recipe.
  • Maple syrup: Sweet maple syrup provides an elegant sweet flavor to this salmon. The glaze is the perfect balance of satisfying, bold, and savory.
  • Lime juice: Fresh citrus brings this easy salmon recipe to a whole new level! A spritz of lemon juice will also work.

HOW TO MAKE THIS DIJON BAKED SALMON FILET IN THE OVEN

  • Prepare pan: First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit so it is nice and hot for the salmon and vegetables. You will want to oven fully preheated. Next, line a baking or sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Season green beans: First, place the fresh, trimmed green beans onto the baking sheet. Make sure they are in a single layer on the pan, then toss with the minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Move the green beans and create a space for the salmon filets on the pan.
  • Make the mustard and maple glaze: Next, in a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, maple syrup or honey, more garlic, fresh lime juice, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Drizzle the glaze over the salmon fillets and the green beans.
  • Bake the salmon: Bake the sheet pan mustard salmon in the oven for fifteen to seventeen minutes until the flaky is flaky and fully cooked. Make sure the beans are tender enough to enjoy but not too soft.
