I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.
I always hesitate posting recipes that are overly simple and really don’t warrant an actual recipe. But here it is anyways -a recipe for Baked Salmon with Mustard – because this is truly something we eat at home often – for it’s simple preparation, short ingredient list, healthiness and super tasty factor. I’m sure many of you have already made this in some form or another, so perhaps just use this as a little reminder, to make it again soon!
The salmon is drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with kosher salt and pepper, then lathered up with whole grain mustard. That’s it. It goes in a 375 F oven for 10-12 minutes or so, and it’s done. When it comes out, the fish is moist and flavorful, and the mustard crust is addicting. Sometimes I will broil it for couple minutes to make it extra crispy. I love this over a hearty green salad or with cauliflower rice, everyday kale salad, basmati rice, roasted veggies– and voila! Your weeknight dinner is ready in a flash.

  1. I have in the past baked halibut with mayo and regular dijon on top to keep fish moist. it’s delicious. But thank you for making me realize that salmon too taste delicious with Maille seeded mustard, so yummy. Love the simplicity of 3 easy ingredients, letting the ingredients talk to my taste buds. Your presentations are always such eye candy with a superb health feeling. Thank you!

  2. Simple and delicious. Very quick to make with great flavor. I will sometimes drizzle a tablespoon of honey over the salmon and mustard before I put it in the oven.

    1. Oooooooooo Terry- really love the addition of honey here! Will have to try that. 😉 Hope you have been well!

  3. Hey that was delicious! I usually throw random sauces on top always but have never used mustard. It was really good with cous cous and a salad and raspberry vinegarette.

  4. I regularly make salmon for dinner during the week and always am searching for new ways to cook it. Thanks for sharing this mustard glazed version. I definitely will be making it!

  5. This is indeed a healthy and delicious presentation of salmon and i really appreciated the step by step illustration of its how-to-cook methods. I can’t wait to try this Mustard Crusted Salmon recipe at home and surely this would turn out to be an incredible meal and i just have to add side dishes. This reminds of the incredible seafood meal i really enjoyed before at Steersons Steakhouse in Sydney.
