This baked salmon recipe with honey dijon and garlic won me a trip to Paris!

Yes, it won me a trip to Paris and you can watch the video of me making it (at home) below!!

I entered a random recipe contest with Cono Sur Vineyards & Winery. The recipe contest was simple: submit a recipe and name a wine they produce that you think would pair well with your recipe.

I don’t like contests, have never entered one, and I never win anything in lottery situations anyway, but I figured since I already had a recipe that I knew would work well with one of their sauvignon blancs, I felt that submitting the recipe was no skin off my back. I submitted it and thought nothing of it. I honestly even forgot about the whole contest until I got an email congratulating me about winning a trip to Paris to compete in the final competition.

I totally thought it was a scam at first but then I dug through emails and remembered this recipe contest that I entered. Holy crap! I won and was representing the United States in this competition!

There were six other countries represented and one blogger from each country (and their guest) would be flown, all expenses paid, to Paris to compete for the grand prize, which was a 6-night, 7-day, all expense paid trip to Chile to visit the Cono Sur vineyards and winery!

Jason unfortunately couldn’t come with to Paris due to work commitments but lucky Gina accompanied me to Paris.

They flew both of us first class (umm, I don’t know if I can ever fly coach again, haha just kidding) and wined and dined us and showed us the beauty of Paris!

Sadly, I didn’t win but I felt like a winner because I got a trip of a lifetime through this delicious salmon recipe!

This salmon recipe really is easy and has got lots of flavor!

I came up with this recipe by simply going into my pantry.

You can’t ever go wrong with honey dijon mustard and garlic in a dish.

How do you cook this baked salmon recipe?

I put it on a baking sheet and let it bake open-faced.

How fast does salmon take to bake?

Super fast! Depending on how thick your salmon is, it is usually done in less than 15 minutes!

You don’t want to overcook your salmon because it’ll get tough.

What can you serve with this baked salmon recipe?

I served this with pearl couscous but any grain would work here, along with some roasted vegetables.

Overall thoughts on this baked salmon with honey dijon and garlic?

It turned out wonderful! You can whip this together in 20 minutes and the sauce is SO GOOD.

It doesn’t take away the beauty and flavor of the salmon but it enhances it.

Honestly, this sauce can easily go on chicken, too, but if you’re looking for easy salmon recipes and want to utilize salmon more into your diet, then this recipe is for you!

This was not as good as I thought it would be. I followed the recipe exactly and it was rather bland and boring. I'll have to play around with it to add more flavour. What I did like is how easy it was to mix everything together.

Thank you for the amazing recipe! This is the easiest and most delicious salmon dish I've ever made. It's no wonder you won the contest. The flavor of the sauce enhances the salmon perfectly. Didn't have a glass of white wine with it this time but looking forward to pairing one with it in the future.
