Herb Mustard Glazed Salmon

I am not a HUGE fish fan. I love sushi, smoked salmon and fish tacos and can tolerate milder-flavored fish like tilapia and salmon (depending on the recipe). I know it is good for you so I try to find recipes that pair fish up with some of my favorite flavors. A favorite of mine is this salmon I made a while back that was made with an asian barbeque sauce (I ate it so fast I couldn't get any pictures to post it...oopsie). That is my go-to salmon recipe but wanted to switch things up. I decided to give this Giada recipe a try and I'm glad I did. It was fairly easy and quick and quite tasty.

Herb Mustard Glazed Salmon


2 garlic cloves
3/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
3/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
Nonstick olive oil cooking spray
6 (6 to 8-ounce) salmon fillets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 lemon wedges


In a mini food processor, combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, wine, oil, Dijon mustard, and 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard. Grind the mustard sauce until combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of whole-grain mustard to the sauce and stir to combine. Set aside mustard sauce.

Preheat the broiler. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with nonstick spray. Arrange the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon the mustard sauce over the fillets. Continue broiling until the fillets are just cooked through and golden brown, about 5 minutes longer.

Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
