“Mustard is the perfect complement for salmon; it brings out the flavor so nicely. This recipe, from Woman's Day, is my kind of recipe; first of all it has only 3 ingredients. But you can add an ingredient (see note) and get a whole new taste! If your have it on hand, you can substitute maple-flavored pancake syrup for the pure maple syrup.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. You will need a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil.
  2. Place salmon pieces 1-inch apart, skin side down, on the lined baking sheet.
  3. Stir mustard and maple syrup together in a small bowl until blended; spoon evenly on salmon.
  4. Bake 10 minutes until salmon is opaque in center.
  5. NOTE: Add 1/4 cup of Panko crumbs on top of each mustard-coated salmon fillet before baking.
  6. Add 1 teaspoon orange zest to the mustard mixture.
  7. Omit the maple syrup and instead add 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and 1 tablespoon soy sauce to mustard.
