We grew up eating seafood several nights a week and my mom’s honey mustard salmon was always one of my favorites. This simple 5-ingredient recipe is ideal for a busy weeknight dinner but fancy enough to serve the company.

Many people love to order seafood in restaurants but are intimidated to cook it at home. The truth is, fish is practically fool-proof and so easy to prepare on your own.

  1. Liz, as per usual, your recipe was freakin’ spot on!! Made it with couscous, and had it on the table within 30 mins. Very easy weeknight dinner! Sincerely, your most loyal Ohio reader, Katie. :)

      1. Made it last night. My husband, who does not really like salmon, finished every bite. So, this will be my “go-to” salmon recipe. Thanks so much for helping me to get him to eat more salmon. Soooo healthy!


      2. Liz, this salmon sounds terrific. I love how simple it is to throw together…a healthy meal in no time. Perfect for week nights. The sauce sounds great. xo, Catherine

      3. Just in time for Friday’s dinner which is mostly fish. (Raised a Catholic and it is just in my DNA!) Thanks for solving what I’m having for dinner tonight.

      4. This sounds like a great way to prepare salmon. At some point I’m going to get brave and fix fish for dinner and get my husband to eat it… This recipe would be an excellent starting place.
