Honey, Mustard & Garlic Salmon

We are a pair who really love fish, and as a cook I love working with it. Not only is it a very versatile ingredient, but it is really good for you and cooks quickly.  We both adore Salmon and this Honey, Mustard and Garlic Salmon is one of the ways we really enjoy eating it.

I will confess however, I am not overly fond of skin on my fish, which is why I really love these boneless and skinless salmon fillets I get from Seafresh.   They're boneless and skinless and come from cente cuts, or the thicker part of the salmon and not the tail, which means they have a beautifully rich and flavour that is not overly fishy, if you know what I mean! 

Salmon is so good for you as well. Its one of the oily fishes which means it is filled with rich protein and healthy omega 3 acids.

This is such a simple and delicious way to prepare it. You simply season your fillets, top and bottom and put them into a baking dish.

A mix of honey, mustard, butter and garlic is spooned over top and then you simply pop them into the oven and bake.

They are done in about 13 minutes tops.  Easy peasy.  I did pop mine under a hot grill for a minute to gild the edges a bit, but that was more for presentation than anything.

Thirteen minutes will give you perfectly cooked salmon. The recipe is for two people, but you can very easily double everything and serve more.  My friend Tina had brought us some beautiful potatoes freshly dug from their garden.   There were some lovely looking tiny ones.

I boiled them to serve with the salmon. You forget how really delicious freshly dug potatoes are, fresh out of the ground. Oh my but they are a little taste of heaven.

I also cooked some corn and green beans. I had a bit of frozen corn in the bottom of a bag and a handful left of frozen beans.  They were the perfect side to serve with the salmon and the potatoes.

Todd said it was the best meal he'd had in a while. (Cheeky!!)  But really it was delicious. The fish  from Seafresh is so amazing.  I have never had any fish from them that I didn't like.  It is frozen fresh at the source and so it is some of  the freshest fish that you can find.  Their salmon fillets are absolutely gorgeous. Boneless and skinless and individually frozen so that you can take out as many or as few as you want to cook at any given time.

Salmon is one of those fishes that goes really well with, and that can stand up to strong flavours like honey and mustard and garlic.

Just look at how perfectly cooked that fish is!! I am getting hungry again just looking at this photo!

Honey, Mustard & Garlic Salmon

Honey, Mustard & Garlic Salmon

This is the most delicious salmon. Quick and easy to do and perfectly cooked. Sized for two people but can very easily be doubled.
prep time: 5 Mcook time: 13 Mtotal time: 18 M


  • 2 (6 oz) boneless, skinless centre cut salmon fillets
  • 2 TBS butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 TBS Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 TBS liquid honey
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • minced parsley to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6.  Have ready a small baking dish with sides, large enough to hold the salmon fillets in a single layer with some space between them.
  2. Pat your salmon dry. Season on the bottom with salt and black pepper. Place into the casserole dish.  Season on top.
  3. Whisk together the melted butter, mustard, honey and garlic. Spoon this  mixture evenly over the fillets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 13 minutes or until the fish tests one. It should flake easily with the tines of a fork.
  5. If desired you can pop it briefly under a hot grill to gild it a bit.  Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.

As with any fish dish, quality speaks for itself.  When you are starting with really good fish, you really don't or shouldnt' have to do very much to it to get the best from it.  The Salmon fillets from Seafresh are beautiful. I think they are the best I have ever eaten and that says a lot!  If you are looking for quality fish at a great price with a fabulous delivery service I can't recommend Seafresh highly enough!  Their product, delivery service, packaging and customer service are exemplary in my opinion and so is this recipe!!

  1. Sounds delicious and easy. Oh, I love salmon!

    1. This is excellent Jeanie. Be prepared to fall in love! xoxo

  2. This was such an easy, simple dish to make and yet it was so delicious. I love salmon and it is plentiful here so we eat it regularly and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it.

    I served mine with boiled potatoes and a summer mix of vegetables (carrots, beans, peas and cauliflower) and we enjoyed it very much.
