  • ½ cup Dijon mustard, divided
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets, rinsed and patted dry


  1. Whisk the mustard, vinegar, and brown sugar together in a bowl. Stream the oil into the vinegar mixture while whisking vigorously to emulsify; season with pepper.
  2. Pour ¼ cup of the mustard mixture into a small bowl; add soy sauce and stir.
  3. Whisk dill into remaining mustard mixture to finish the sauce.
  4. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange salmon fillets skin sides down on the prepared pan. Liberally brush soy sauce mixture onto all sides of the fillets. Allow to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Bake salmon in preheated oven until just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately with the mustard-dill sauce.
Mealthy tip:

Not a dill fan? Use snipped fresh chives instead.

My favorite thing about this recipe was the soy Dijon mustard glaze. So good and quick to make. Goes perfect with fresh vegetables.

I love Dijon chicken, and had never considered doing Dijon on salmon... and man was I missing out! My 2 year old ate almost the whole thing, I should have made twice as much. When you cook this one, make sure to continually check the salmon so it doesn't get overdone (I almost overcooked mine).
