Smokey Mustard-Maple Salmon Recipe


When you buy your salmon, ask at the fish counter to have the salmon cut into four 4-ounce fillets with the skin removed.


- 3 Tbsp whole-grain or Dijon mustard
- 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1/3 tsp smoked paprika or ground chipolte pepper
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 4 4-oz skinless, center-cut, wild-caught salmon


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
  3. Combine mustard, maple syrup, paprika (or chipotle), pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
  4. Place salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Spread the mustard mixture evenly on the salmon.
  6. Roast until just cooked through (approx. 8-12 minutes)


Quick Tips: Smoked paprika is made from smoke-dried, red peppers and adds earthy, smoky flavor. It can be used in many types of savory dishes. Look for different types of paprika at large supermarkets or online.Wild-caught salmon from the Pacific (Alaska and Washington) are more sustainably fished and have a larger, more stable population.
