What's For Dinner Wednesday: Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon

I can't believe that I have never shared this recipe before, but this is my go to recipe for preparing salmon. I have been making it this way for years-- even back when I was a poor single party girl-- because it is super easy and salmon aside, is made with ingredients that I always keep on hand (see this post on pantry staples for more info). And you only need about a half hour to pull this entree together!

I love the flavor of this salmon glaze. Sweet honey and spicy Dijon mustard pair so well together and with a little acid from the vinegar, it balances out really nicely on a fatty fish like salmon. I also love the combination Dijon and whole grain mustard here: The Dijon is spicy and creamy and the whole grain adds a really nice texture to the glaze.

The salmon is moist, flavorful, and this is actually a really healthy way to prepare it. I like to serve it with roasted asparagus and either roasted potatoes or a side of rice pilaf. It's an easy, complete, and healthy dinner!


  • 2 (two) 1/4-1/3-lb. salmon fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. whole grain mustard
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp. dried chives
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Lightly grease the bottom of a baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange salmon fillets on top.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients: oil through salt and pepper. Brush half of the mixture evenly over the tops of both pieces of fish.

Bake for about 10 minutes, remove, and brush remaining honey mustard mixture on the salmon.

Place the salmon back in the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until center reaches desired degree of doneness. I like my salmon more opaque and less pink inside, so I lean more on the 10 minute side.
