Mustard-Glazed Salmon

This dish is casual enough for a family dinner and elegant enough to serve to company. To keep the fillets from sticking to the pan, cook them with the skin side of the fish down. Some of the skin may stick to the pan a bit, but you can use a spatula to slide the fillets right off the pan without tearing them.

Mustard-Glazed Salmon

Source: Martha Stewart Living Television


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 pieces salmon fillet (6 ounces each), with skin
  • Chopped fresh dill (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, mustard, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  2. Put salmon, skin side down, in a baking dish, and spoon mustard glaze over each piece of fish. Bake until salmon is just cooked through and no longer red, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped dill, if desired, and serve.

    YUM. My shamelessly bachelor-y version of this made 2 meals out of a $5 piece of salmon, the sauce, angel hair pasta, and some spinach. I made a liberal amount of sauce, and applied it to the salmon and cooked as directed. I also fixed angel hair pasta and used the sauce on THAT, too... and, finally, I threw some spinach into the sauce bowl and called it a light salad with dressing. The salmon and pasta were DELICIOUS together, and I my leftovers + an apple made lunch the next day.

    Great recipe! I didn't have any dijon so I used Honey mustard and added a few drops of hot sauce with a pinch of cayenne for a little sweet heat and it was delicious.

    I just made this and I am eating it as I write this. I needed something different than just baked salmon. This was a nice twist. Very delicious, simple and minimal ingredients. This made my dinner delicious and to me a little classy. Love this recipe and I will make this again!

    Just made this for dinner and was delicious. Sides were sweet potatoe fries (frozen) and snap peas (microwave in bag). The prep for the whole dinner was <5 mins. My husband loved it as well. Will make again.

    A great recipe for a quick week night dinner. We marinated the Salmon first, them grilled the fish fillets (no skin). It took about 6-8 minutes on the grill, depending the doneness you like. I left off the dill, I would also recommend cumin. It is a great rescipe for entertaining!

    This recipe was very easy especially for a beginner like me (In n n n n n m learning how to cook). My family liked it. I read the comment by Krix2, and did it that way. My fish took about 20 minutes to fully cook. Also, I did not sprinkle the chopped fresh dill.

    Delicious, easy to make, and so few ingredients. Instead of 4 6oz filets, I used about 8 4oz fillets with no skin. I sprayed cooking spray on the bottom of the baking dish, and I doubled the sauce and glazed both sides of the fish before baking. I also used a fish/chicken seasoning instead of regular salt n pepper, in addition to the dill, and it turned out great, so you have some leeway with the spices. My fish took about 15 minutes to fully cook, longer than the 6-8 minutes suggested.
