Dukan Diet Attack Phase Recipe – Oven Baked Salmon Fillet

This is one of my favorite fish dishes because it is just so easy to cook and it is a dish good enough to serve up to any guest, assuming of course that they like fish. I would recommend that you always try to have your friends over for a meal on a Protein and Vegetable (PV) day in the Cruise Phase. This allows you to fill you plate with lots of vegetables so that no one really notices what you’re not eating.

Oven Baked Salmon Fillet


  • A piece of salmon fillet for each serving
  • Lemon slices
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Take a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap a couple of fillets.
  2. Put two pieces of lemon on the foil for each fillet.
  3. Place each salmon fillet on top of two lemon slices.
  4. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Wrap the fillets in the foil.
  6. Cook in a medium heat in the oven until cooked.

This is a dish which tastes just as good when eaten cold, so you might want to consider cooking an extra serving to have cold another day.

    Hey Amber,
    I don’t have much experience in cooking fish. How hot is medium heat and how long shall I keep the fish in the oven? Thanks a bunch.

      Hi Laila

      Cooking fish is one of those things best done by eye as they vary in size and shape. A thicker fillet will take longer to cook than a thinner one. Ideally you are aiming for when the fish just starts to flake. Over cooking will dry the fish out but is better than under cooking. Keep checking your fish every couple of minutes after the first five minutes and you’ll learn how to judge how long it needs in your oven as ovens vary even when on the same temprature setting – a medium oven is 180–190°C or 350–375°F.

      Best wishes

      What about packaged gravy’s during the attack phase and mushrooms?

        Hi Casey

        I’d need to see the ingredients and nutritional information to give a definite answer but it is unlikly that a packaged gravy would be suitable and mushrooms aren’t added until Cruise.

        Kind regards

    Hi Amber,
    Am just a little confused about amounts. Can I just roast a piece of beef in the oven, slice it and have it through the day? Also confused as to amount of that beef I may have at each meal, the attack phase states unlimited, yet most recipes state set amounts eg. Your lovely Baked Salmon dish says 1 Salmon fillet? That’s just not enough to satisfy most people’s hunger.
    Cheers Caz.

      Hi Caz

      There is no limit on the amounts of protein that you eat so you can snack on roast beef throughout the day if you wish. You can also have more than one salmon fillet if you like or look to have more courses or serve the salmon with a little cottage cheese or a poached egg. The recipes are there to provided guidelines rather than strict rules.

      Best wishes
