Mustard Glazed Salmon

We love fish here in our household. There is pretty much no fish we won't eat, but you know, like all foods, it can get boring eating it all the time. I mean, shrimp is great with lime or garlic, lemon and butter. Salmon is lovely sauteed with oil and rosemary or glazed with soy sauce. But I need something more now and again!

We had a lovely fillet of salmon and I was on the hunt for something new and exciting to do with it. Off to I went! I found a great little recipe that is really something new and different. Oh, and tasty too! Who would have thought mustard and fish would be such a delightful combo!

Mustard Glazed Salmon
Based off

  • 1 Large Boneless Salmon Fillet
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. White Wine
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1/4 C. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3-4 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp. Dried Oregano

  1. Put your oven's broiler on low.
  2. Place salmon fillet in a foil lined, over safe dish. If it has skin, place it skin side down.
  3. Blend together the remaining ingredients and allow to sit for a few minutes so the flavor can meld.
  4. Pour marinade over the salmon. Place in oven a few inches from the boiler. Allow to cook until the fish flakes easily and is cooked through in the center. I'm not sure how long that took, but I imagine only around 10-15 minutes. Mine got a little burnt- maybe it was too close.
  5. Serve warm. If the fillet had skin, removed flesh from skin when serving.
