Honey Mustard Salmon

Honey Mustard Salmon
I made this recipe up one night after my kids ate honey-mustard chicken somewhere. This can be done with salmon or chicken breasts. I grill my salmon but it could be baked just as easily at 400˚F in your oven. Just put it in a well-oiled baking dish and forget about using the aluminum foil.
  • tick Fish
  • tick Gluten Free
  • tick Dairy Free


  • 12-16 oz salmon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


Turn on the grill to high heat. Take a 2 ft. long piece of aluminum foil and fold it over itself to create a 1 ft. long rectangle. Crimp the edges with your fingers to form a rim to hold in the juices. Prick it a few times with a fork.

With a whisk, stir together the honey and Dijon mustard. Pat the fish dry with a paper towel, then brush both sides with olive oil and season with the salt and pepper. Place the fish on the aluminum foil, put the whole thing on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 5 minutes. Lift the grill lid and brush the fish generously with the honey mustard. Close the lid and cook another 5 minutes. Brush again with the honey mustard. At this point, check to see if the salmon easily flakes when a fork is inserted. If not, close the lid and allow it to cook for up to 5 more minutes. Give it one last brush of glaze as you take it off the grill.

Once you’ve removed it from the grill, you’ll see that the salmon skin sticks to the foil, allowing the meat to just slide right off.

    Wow the Salmon taste great. I never put Honey & Dijon Mustard together for fish...only on my chicken strips. Thank you for the easy and wonderful recipe

    I made this tonight - it was a huge success. Even with my son who "doesn't like salmon" (at least he didn't before tonight!). :-) Thanks so much!
