4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)

Butter-sautéed spinach seasoned simply with garlic, salt, and pepper makes a nice side dish for this fish entrée, but any wilted greens will do.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a fork. Rub mustard mixture evenly over each fillet. Place fillets, skin side down, on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

This is a super easy recipe for some tasty salmon. The red pepper could be cut just a bit. We had one less fillet than this called for and easily used the rub up. If I had 4 or more fillets, I'd increase this by at least half. Served with some left over side dishes: scalloped potatoes and peas. Delicious.

I made this last night, and it was pretty good. Super easy and had all the ingredients on hand, except red pepper, which I substituted with cayenne. I think I put a little too much of that in, because it was just a bit too spicy for me (though not for my husband). Might make again, but have quite a few other simple recipes like these that I like better, like the Brown Sugar and Mustard Salmon that Cooking Light has.

Super Fast! I served this with brown rice and a fresh garden salad. Yummy.

Mixed this "rub" as directed and slathered it on a 1-lb salmon fillet. Before broiling, I lightly coated the fish with pepper. Very flavorful.

Fits my definition of a favorite recipe -- easy and fast enough for a weeknight but good enough to serve for company. I discovered too late that I was out of honey so I substituted maple syrup instead. That worked great to provide a little sweetness to balance the mustard and spices. I was pleased with the suggestion to use spinach and brown rice for the side dishes, although I was tempted to use asparagus for the vegetable which I'm sure would have been equally good. A very easy, tasty, and healthy meal.

I love this recipe! I've made it about four times now and it doesn't get old. My friends love, my family loves it -- my 10 year old little sister went crazy over this recipe and she's the pickiest eater I've ever met. Even if you don't like fish, you have to try this!

Our family really loves this recipe. It's a regular at our house - quick and easy. The whole grain mustard is good, but I think the recipe would also do well with ground mustard - prepared mustard you might need to reduce the amount a bit, but I have not tried that. (My daughter doesn't care for salmon too much, but actually enjoyed it with this topping!)
