Salmon with Mustard and Brown Sugar Glaze

My husband and I love salmon.  Salmon is definitely one of our favorite meals and every now and then I try to experiment and find us a new way to enjoy it.  We definitely love the sweet and savory, the Maple Glazed Salmon has been a go-to salmon recipe for us for a few years now.  This past week we picked up our Zaycon Chicken order and I prepped a few Sweet Mustard Chicken freezer meals and I got to thinking that a version of the same sauce would be delightful on our salmon!  So, I went with the sweet…brown sugar…and savory…the Dijon mustard.  And the end result is an easy and outstanding salmon recipe.

We served ours with roasted asparagus and it was the perfect accompaniment.  No carbs needed 😉  This recipe will definitely be one that we will keep in our regular rotation of salmon recipes.  It’s easy to make and full of robust flavor.  We always get our salmon from Anderson Seafoods, it’s the freshest and best tasting we have found.

  1. The funny thing is, I had two pieces of salmon thawing when I saw this post. Our favorite way to make it is teriyaki, but since I just had something with teriyaki for dinner last night, I really wanted something different. I followed the recipe for everything except for the ginger, since for some reason, my jar of ginger is missing (I’ll pick up another one tomorrow). I love how this tastes, and it’s SO easy to make. It’s also something with ingredients I typically have on hand. It’s definitely on my list to make again!

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it! We have made it several times ourselves too. I love how all the flavors work together! Thank you so much for your feedback.

  2. You know, I’ve never eaten salmon cooked as a ‘filet’ type dish. I’ve had salmon patties, but never this. It looks delicious & I love fish, so I need to try this.

  3. I would definitely would love to try the Salmon with Mustard and Brown Sugar Glaze. I think it is a great plate, of which it’s on my menu later this next week.

  4. My husband really loves salmon. I’m not crazy about it unless it has a great topping. This should do the trick! Pinning for future reference.
