This mustard crusted salmon with oats and chives is a fresh and creative spring meal that takes just minutes to prepare.



4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 egg
3 tablespoons chopped chives
1 lemon


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the salmon fillets, skin side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pat the fillets with a paper towel to dry them off. Brush on a tablespoon of the mustard and sprinkle over 1/2 teaspoon of the salt.

Combine the oats, maple syrup, egg, 2 tablespoons of chives, and the remaining mustard and salt in a small bowl. Zest the lemon and add that to the bowl as well. Stir to combine. 

Using your hands, press the oat mixture over the top of salmon fillets. Slice the lemon into rounds and place these over the top of each piece of salmon.

Bake the salmon for 12 minutes. Then, place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to brown the oats. Serve with your choice of sides, such as roasted asparagus and white rice.
