Oven Baked Frozen Salmon with Maple Mustard Glaze


About this Recipe

From straight out of the freezer to soft on the inside and crispy on the outside oven baked salmon. This recipe is a must-have if you love salmon but are lost for time to create dinner from scratch.

Salmon is a great staple protein after bariatric surgery if tolerated well and appropriate for your diet post-op. This fatty fish contains about 7g of protein per ounce (28g) and has invaluable omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory effects.

  • 2 frozen salmon fillets, about 4 oz (120g) each
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 3/4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dill powder
  • Substitute the maple syrup for sugar free syrup if your sensitive to sugar. Keep in mind that the entire dish helps to slow down digestion because of the protein in the salmon. This makes digestive issues less likely as opposed to when eating the maple syrup on its own.

  • Substitute the salmon fillet for cod or tilapia.
  • Serve with oven baked potatoes or quinoa and a green salad or oven roasted Brussels sprouts with Parmesan (if pouch space allows).
