From Ina Garten, a simple, flavorful way to make salmon. I have also broiled this instead of grilling. Perfect for a dinner party! Serve it warm or cold.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat grill and brush rack with olive oil to prevent fish from sticking.
  2. Whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and garlic.
  3. Drizzle about half of the marinade onto the salmon and allow it to sit about 10 minutes.
  4. Place salmon skin side down on the hot grill; discard the marinade the fish was sitting in.
  5. Grill salmon approximately 4-5 minutes on each side (or longer as you prefer).
  6. Transfer the fish to a plate, skin-side down, and spoon the remaining marinade on top.
  7. Allow fish to rest about 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the skin and serve.

Excellent! I baked it and added some breadcrumbs. It would taste great with some pineapple on the side to balance off the saltiness. I would definitely make it again.

My friend just served this to me at a dinner party and I loved it so much, I asked for the recipe. Luckily, it was here on, so I now have it tucked in my cookbook. Excellent flavor and it was great for a dinner party. Thanks for posting!

A friend fixed this for me while I was visiting her and it was so delicious I had to make it for my own family. I've fixed it twice already. The cooking instructions are perfect and the salmon is delicious at any temperature. The 2nd time I made it I reduced the olive oil to 4 tbsp with no real change in flavor, so I will do it that way in the future to reduce calories. Highly recommended!
