This is my GO-TO easy dinner when I have nothing planned. This three-ingredient Dijon Salmon is made in ten minutes (yes, ten minutes), and is cooked to perfection and SO flavorful. It’s the perfect salmon recipe for a busy weeknight. Made in partnership with Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)!

3 Ingredient Dijon Salmon Plated

This salmon recipe is SO easy, and it’s SO good. Nobody will know it took you ten minutes to make! I am so excited to partner with theMSC to bring you today’s post! I’ve teamed up with the MSC, a nonprofit organization, to support the launch of their Keep It Wild campaign celebrating 20 years of wild, traceable, sustainable seafood. For 20 years the MSC has been part of a team effort to keep oceans healthy and full of life. Choose the blue fish label and make sure the fish you eat can be traced back to a sustainable source.

The MSC blue fish label

The blue fish label is only applied to wild fish or seafood from fisheries that have been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard, a science-based set of requirements for sustainable fishing. They are wild, traceable, sustainable! Read ten reasons to choose fish with the blue fish label here.

Dijon Salmon

I always buy wild-caught salmon, either sockeye or king salmon filets. I love knowing that I can trust the integrity of where my salmon is coming from!

How long does it take to cook salmon in the oven?

You can bake your salmon, but I love my trusty method of broiling it for 10 minutes! Simple as that!
