- 10.5 ounce Salmon filet
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat, place the salmon filet in the middle of the sheet, pat dry with paper towels, set aside. Make the Marinade: In a small bowl, add Dijon mustard, olive oil, minced garlic, pepper, Kosher salt, dill, and celery seed. Mix the marinade and then spread it all over the salmon filet. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the salmon to marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
- Bake the Salmon: Preheat your oven to 325°F. Bake the salmon for 15 minutes. The salmon should flake off when using a fork when cooked through. (Salmon is 145°F, in the thickest part of the Salmon, when cooked) Divide the Salmon into smaller filets.
