Quick, Easy, Healthy for the Holidays: Dijon Glazed Salmon

Paid a visit to Family Friendly Farms. Their website does a Glazed Ham Dijon mustard recipe. So, seafood4unow adapted it for Salmon. In case you wish to be traditional and do Ham...

Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)

  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Fresh lemon wedges, for serving

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

  • Broccoli, one head or 1 pound


  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Prepare the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Marinate the salmon: Place the salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly greased. Brush the glaze generously over each fillet, making sure to coat the top and sides.

  4. Bake the salmon: Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for about 12–15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork. Cooking time may vary based on the thickness of your fillets.

  5. Broil for a crispy finish (optional): If you want a slightly crispy top, you can turn on the broiler for the last 1–2 minutes of cooking. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.

  6. Steam the broccoli in a bowl of water by putting it in the microwave for 3–4 minutes. If there is no microwave, place broccoli in a mesh strainer above boiling water, with a lid over the mesh container. You should have Crunchy Broccoli.

Serve: Remove the salmon from the oven, garnish with chopped fresh parsley, next to the steamed broccoli, and serve with lemon wedges on the side.

This Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon is not only easy to make, but also brings a perfect balance of sweet and savory flavors to your holiday table. Pair it with your favorite side dishes like roasted vegetables, quinoa, or a fresh salad for a complete and festive meal. Enjoy!
