So Much Salmon

Sometimes I think I have really great ideas in the morning.

I like to consider myself a morning person. I’m more productive during the morning. I get my best workouts in during the morning.

But creative thinking?  Maybe not so much.

Because this morning, in my sleep-fog addled mind, I decided that it would be a good idea to defrost some salmon for dinner.

Salmon which I had purchased from Trader Joe’s in a pack totaling over a full pound.

I had no dinner plans tonight. No one was coming over. It would be just me and my 16 ounces of salmon.

That’s a lot. of. salmon.

Mustard Coconut Baked Salmon
serves 4

16 oz wild salmon filets
2 T coconut oil, measured solid
salt, to taste
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t chili powder
2-3 T mustard of choice (I used a spicy brown mustard)

1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Place salmon filets on a rimmed baking sheet and gently slather coconut oil on top.
3. Sprinkle with spices and place in oven, baking for 5-7 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and slather mustard evenly over salmon.
5. Place back in oven and bake an additional 3-4 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Wish me luck. I have a lot of salmon to eat.

  1. I’ve had each of them with fish/salmon before, but I’ve never thought of coconut oil & mustard together! Totally intrigued.

    Good luck with all that salmon!! Oh, the woes of cooking for one…

  2. Mmm…those 16 ounces look ridiculously good. I agree with Katie – the coconut oil and mustard combo sounds awesome! Also, I have to agree that morning ideas = the best ideas.

  3. I’d like to say I’m surprised to see coconut oil in this recipe…but I’d be lying. 😉 I love salmon. And mustard. You could have invited me over. 😉 (Yes, that’s two winkies in one comment. Judge me.)

  4. Well, I’d like to say I’m surprised to see coconut oil in this recipe…but I’d be lying. 😉 I love salmon. And mustard. You could have invited me over. 😉 (Yes, that’s two winkies in one comment. Judge me.)

  5. Can one really ever have too much salmon? I think not. It keeps for a while which means no cooking is necessary! It looks delicious my friend…love mustard on anything.
