Baked Salmon with Lemon Herb Aioli


Omg this lemon herb aioli tastes amazing on everything, but especially good on baked salmon. I think the fresh lemon juice and the dijon mustard in the aioli go really well with the salmon flavor. My husband, who is my official taste tester loved it, and he’s more of a meat, than a fish, kind of guy. The aioli is made with paleo friendly coconut and avocado oil so it’s really healthy, although it would be just as delicious on sweet potato fries or a burger. It’s a good thing I made a lot of it (I doubled my normal aioli recipe)!

I made this salmon dish with baked green beans, and I sliced some radishes on the side, for a fresh palette cleanser. There is a lot of healthy oil in this dish, but you definitely need something cooked (or uncooked) without any oil on the plate. My husband and I happen to love raw radishes, and they are crazy good for you. Plus, I love their color on the plate.

    1. You can use olive oil, but it will taste different, the olive oil has a stronger flavor than the coconut and avocado oil. For mayo I normally use half olive oil half coconut oil.
