 👩‍🍳You will love this salmon marinade recipe!


It’s fast and easy – and there’s very little cleanup involved.


Salmon is packed with good-for-you omega-3 fatty acids, and if you happen to have leftovers, it’s GREAT in a salad for lunch the next day. 


💡TIP: If you don’t have a grill, you can bake this for 10-12 minutes in a 400ºF/200ºC oven. Keep your eye on it and take it out of the oven as soon as it starts to get flaky.


5-Ingredient Marinated Salmon

(serves 4)

  • 1½ lb. salmon, skin on one side (wild if possible)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1½ Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup olive oil, plus more for brushing the grill


Lay the salmon skin on a cutting board and slice it into 3 equal portions. Place in a baking dish, skin side down.


In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, mustard, garlic, and olive oil until it  emulsifies. Pour over the salmon and let marinate at room temp for 10-15 minutes (tops!). 


While it’s resting, preheat your grill to 400ºF/200ºC. Brush the grill grates with oil to prevent sticking.


Place the salmon on the grill, skin side down, and grill for 4-5 minutes, then turn over. 

Cook for another 4-5 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through and begins to flake.


Serve with a side of veggies and sweet potato. Yum!
