Maple-Mustard Baked Salmon

Maple-Mustard Baked Salmon

I found a new recipe from Salu-Salo Recipes for salmon that looked and sounded delicious. The recipe was super simple to make and it had just a few ingredients. The fish turned out flavorful, moist, and very tasty. My husband isn’t a big fan of sweetened fish marinades so this was just okay for him but the rest of us devoured it. I served this salmon with the Roasted Vegetable Israeli Couscous and a salad for a healthy and delicious meal.

How to Make Maple-Mustard Baked Salmon

Put the salmon filet into a long baking dish then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Combine the maple syrup and mustard together in a bowl; mix well. Pour the marinade over the salmon, cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat with cooking spray.

Remove the salmon from the marinade and transfer it to the prepared baking sheet.

Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, being careful not to overcook.  Check the fish by gently poking through the fillet with a fork to see if it flakes apart.

Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. My friend just told me she made a maple-mustard salmon just two days ago!! I thought it sounded good… but now I’m completely sold!!!

  2. This salmon recipe looks fantastic. So easy and will make a great weeknight dinner. We eat a lot of salmon, so I’ll definitely be trying this. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Anna,

      It may change the flavor of the dish because Dijon has a stronger more spicy flavor. Let me know how it turns out.
