This Japanese-Inspired salmon dish is one of my most popular dinner recipes ever. Why? It’s just so easy and delicious! It’s the most complete nutritional, and tasty, meal, full of good-for-you fats and omega-3s from the salmon. Pair with greens, brown rice and low-GI sweet potato for an easy weeknight meal.

1 tsp coconut oil (or spray)
1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp honey (optional)
- Preheat oven to 200° (180° fan-forced).
