Simple Salmon

Simple Salmon

We eat salmon a lot at this house.  Everyone loves it, however we always stick with the same recipe – teriyaki salmon on the grill.  It’s great, but I really wanted to change it up. This time I wanted to bake it.  I wanted some strong flavors to come through so I decided to include some Dijon mustard, a little honey, and some breadcrumbs.  How can you go wrong with that?

The end result was pretty amazing and the family agreed.  This will be another “go to” recipe for salmon at this household.  Plus, it is super simple to prepare.

Simple Salmon

  • Servings: 4-5
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 4-5 (4 oz.) Salmon Fillets (we buy Costco salmon, fresh and frozen)
  • 1/4 Cup of Butter, melted (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Dijon Mustard
  • 1 1/2 Cup of Honey
  • 4 Teaspoons of Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup of regular bread crumbs and/or Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup of homemade bread crumbs using crushed Multi-grain Crackers or any kind of Crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a shallow baking pan with foil.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, Dijon mustard, and honey.  In another bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs and parsley.  For the breadcrumbs, get creative and use what you have a home.  That’s what I did when I put this together.  The homemade crushed breadcrumbs really add a lot of extra flavor and texture.
  3. Brush each salmon fillet with the Dijon mixture.  Then place on the foil lined pan. Sprinkle each fillet with the breadcrumbs.
  4. Bake the salmon for 12-16 minutes in preheated oven. Season with salt and pepper. You can garnish with a lemon wedge if you prefer.
