Roasted Wild Salmon with Olive and Mint Vinaigrette

Prep Time: 
10 minutes
Number of Servings: 
Serves 4
Recipe Source: 


  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 (4 oz) wild salmon fillets, pinbones removed
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 14 tsp sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 14 cup Olive and Mint Vinaigrette


  1. Put olive oil, lemon zest, and mustard in a small bowl and stir to combine. Put salmon in an ovenproof baking pan in which it fits in a single layer without overlapping. Spread olive oil mixture evenly over both sides of fillets. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°.
  3. Remove salmon from refrigerator and add water. Sprinkle salt over fillets and season with pepper. Bake just until an instant-read thermometer registers 127°, approximately 7 to 9 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. Salmon should be opaque and beginning to flake.
  4. Whisk the already made Olive and Mint Vinaigrette to ensure that it’s evenly blended. Drizzle over fillets and serve immediately.
