Honey-Mustard Salmon with Green Beans


Quick-cooking salmon fillets are flavored with honey-mustard vinaigrette and a delicious breadcrumb topping; crisp green beans complete the meal. (Reserve some of the vinaigrette to use later in the week to make Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Salad.)

  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons Champagne or white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Whisk together honey, mustard, vinegar, and oil; season with salt and pepper. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss onion with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette and bake 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir 1 tablespoon vinaigrette into breadcrumbs. Coat fish with 1 tablespoon vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper; top with breadcrumb mixture and add to sheet. Bake until fish is cooked through, about 7 minutes.

  3. In boiling salted water, cook green beans until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes; drain and toss with onion and 1 tablespoon vinaigrette. Refrigerate remaining vinaigrette in an airtight container for Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Salad. Serve fish with vegetables.

    I used cod rather than salmon. The green beans had a great taste yet the fish needed more vinaigrette than recommended in the recipe. It was very bland as written.

    Wow! The totally best salmon I think I have ever made! Love the vinegarette! I am planning to make chicken salad with the left over vinegarette! Cut up chicken, celery and perhaps some green onion. I used panko crumbs on the salmon...came out crispy and delicious. Told all my friends and relatives about it. Thanks, Martha!

    This recipe will go on regular rotation in our house - it's delicious, simple, healthy, and presents beautifully at the table. I halved it for the two of us, but it would be great for a dinner party. Love the vinaigrette - so simple and smart how its used throughout the recipe. I added an additional Tbsp or so of honey to the vinaigrette, but made everything else as-written. I also used a leftover brioche bun for the breadcrumbs so they were especially rich and buttery - yum.
