Salmon with Mustard- Herb Sauce

by Erica Dinho on October 23, 2009

Salmon with mustardI very much love to cook and eat salmon and I am always looking for different ways to make it. This time, I made a sauce with fresh herbs, mayo and mustard and it came out perfect. I hope you enjoy this simple and delicious salmon recipe.



(4 servings)

  • 4 (6 oz) salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sauce

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime


  • Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • In a large baking dish place the salmon fillets. Drizzle olive oil and season each fillet with salt and pepper.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
  • Meanwhile make the sauce: place all the sauce ingredients in the food processor and process until smooth.
  • Place the salmon on a serving plate and spoon sauce on top of the fish.
