Maple Dijon Salmon

I think Dijon mustard makes almost anything better, and combined with real maple syrup and used as a glaze on salmon it is wonderful!    If your salmon is fresh or thawed, this is a quick and easy meal fit for guests or your family on a busy day.                   

                            Maple Dijon Salmon
     1/2         pound  Salmon Fillets -- Cut into 4 ounce pieces.
  1               Tablespoon  Maple Syrup
  1               Tablespoon  Dijon Mustard
Heat oven to 400°.
Lay salmon fillet pieces on a pan covered in heavy foil and lightly brushed with olive oil.
Mix maple syrup and mustard together in a cup.
Spread about half over the salmon before baking. (Baste halfway through with the remaining mixture)
Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes, or 10 minutes for each inch of thickness, basting after 5 minutes.
Serve on heated plates.  2 Servings

  1. What a great and simple idea. I have made honey-mustard salmon but never thought of this! I read your blog at least a couple of times a week. I am also a food blogger and actually don't read a lot of food blogs--but I do enjoy yours. I have many old 50s and 60s cookbooks as well and want to try your "Grape Nuts Bread" as well. Maybe I will make it to accompany the salmon.

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Chuck. Nice to hear from other food bloggers.
      This is a very simple way to prepare salmon - and the Grape Nuts bread is really very good.
      I think you'll like both recipes.
