Salmon with Herbed Mustard Sauce

Recipe photo courtesy of Minh Ngo

A natural affinity exists between salmon and mustard. In this sauce, fresh lemon juice and herbs temper the heat of the mustard, but its flavor remains strong enough to stand up to the salmon.

Cook's Notes

The recipe calls for broiling the fish. If, like Weil, you prefer to grill when possible, heat a grill to medium, season the salmon as in step 2, place it skin-side down on the grill, and cook, covered, for 8 to 9 minutes.

    val725 - I would stick with dijon or honey mustard but if it's got to much kick for you add a little something creamy like sour cream or mayo or more simply add more lemon juice

    Val725, I think if you wanted to use plain hot dog mustard it would be just fine, I am going to do that first.

    I was wondering if there is a way to make the sauce not so spicy. I love Dijon mustard but 1/2 cup is a lot. Maybe more herbs? Any ideas? Thank you.

    This was the best salmon recipe I've ever found! My boyfriend refuses to touch any salmon or tuna, but with the dijon sauce on top, he ate the whole thing and practically licked the plate clean! The mustard, dill, and lemon blended perfectly with the fish to create an overall delicious experience! Everyone should try this dish!
