“This recipe is for roasting a whole side of salmon (3+ pounds). If you have a smaller fillet, adjust ingredients accordingly. Adapted from "Bon Appetit" magazine.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and arrange rack in the center of the oven; line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, tarragon, chives, sugar, lemon juice and lemon peel (everything but the salmon); season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Place salmon, skin side down, diagonally across the baking sheet; spoon 1/2 cup of the mustard sauce over top and spread so that it covers the salmon completely.
  4. Season salmon with additional salt and pepper; roast until salmon is just opaque in the center, about 15 minutes.
  5. Use the parchment paper to help you transfer the salmon to a serving platter; cut crosswise into serving pieces, and serve with remaining mustard sauce.
