Quick Dijon Crusted Salmon

Today I wanted to share a quick, flavorful, and easy recipe for dinner. I made this salmon yesterday when I had a ton of errands to run in the morning and meetings in the afternoon so by the time I got home I didn’t want to be cooking for a long time. This meal can literally be thrown together in 15 minutes!

This recipe is so flavorful, the dijon gives the salmon a little bit of a kick and the dill and lemon juice add so much freshness to it! I love to serve it with arugula dressed with a little bit of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. I really hope you enjoy this simple weeknight dinner recipe!
