Herb Dijon Crusted Salmon

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 4 pieces of salmon - 6-8oz each
  • 2 tsp regular dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp coarse ground dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp grated fresh garlic about 1/4-1/2 a clove
  • 2 tsp minced chives fresh
  • 1 tsp minced thyme fresh
  • 1 tsp minced rosemary fresh
  • 1-2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • Salt pepper, sugar, to taste


  • Preheat your oven on "broiler" setting.
  • Pat salmon dry with paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine mustards, herbs, garlic, and white wine. Taste and add salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. (A teensy bit of sugar will help cut the acidity just a bit).
  • Place salmon on baking tray lined with parchment or foil.
  • Smear about 1 tablespoon of sauce on each piece of fish.
  • Broil fish for 7-10 minutes, or until done to your liking.


Don't be tempted to add extra garlic in this recipe (which is something I almost always do...). The cook time on this is super short, so the garlic flavor doesn't have much time to mellow in the oven. You will breathe fire for days if you use a whole clove.
