Here's a new way you can eat salmon. This Honey Mustard Salmon is easy, it’s healthy, and it’s super delicious. And the best part, this dish will be on your table in less than 30 minutes… and no i’m not exaggerating! It only takes 5 minutes to make the honey mustard sauce, and about 15 minutes to cook the salmon!

Making honey mustard by scratch is so easy, and so much healthier. You can control the ingredients and add as much or as little honey as you'd like. You don't have to worry about buying jarred honey mustard with excess amounts of added sugar.

Place the sliced lemon on the bottom of a baking sheet. Then transfer the salmon filets directly on top of the lemon slices and season with salt and pepper.

Evenly spread the honey mustard over the salmon filets, and bake at 400º until desired temperature is reached.

Serve with a squeeze of lemon and parsley for garnish.

Preheat your oven to 400º
In a small bowl, mix together the mustards, honey, lemon juice, sherry, and a pinch of salt. Taste, and adjust honey, sherry, and salt as needed.
Add the sliced lemon to the bottom of a baking sheet. Pat the salmon completely dry and transfer to a baking sheet on top of the lemon.
Season with salt and pepper, and then spread on 1/2 to 3/4 the honey mustard sauce. Bake for 14 minutes.
Remove the salmon from the oven and spoon on the rest of the honey mustard sauce. Then transfer back to the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes.

  • The Garlic Aioli Dijon Mustard is a mustard sold at Trader Joe's. However, if you can't find this mustard, you can use 3 tbsp of Creamy Dijon Mustard, and grate one garlic clove into the sauce.

    I love to cook salmon filets in my air-fryer... Any specific suggestions for doing so with this recipe?

      I have cooked salmon in the air fryer, but not this specific recipe. I would recommend cooking the salmon in the air fryer as you normally would, then just topping it with the honey mustard once its done!
