Honey-Dijon- Dill Salmon Marinade

"This is a great easy marinade for Salmon. My sister-in-law made it for us and we all loved it. Note that the cooking time depends on the size and thickness of the salmon filet, you will just have to watch carefully. Prep time includes marinade time."

    Very easy to prepare! My new favorite salmon recipe (and I'm picky about how salmon is prepared)! I actually cut the olive oil in half, to 1/4 cup. I mixed the dill right in with the other ingredients. Also, added the juice of 1 lemon. Used a 2.5lb fillet from Sam's that I cut into 2 large pieces and placed on a foil-lined sheet pan. Poured half of the marinade over the fish, flipped the pieces over and covered with other half of marinade... refrigerated for a couple hours then baked for 17 minutes at 350. Perfection!

    This was just wonderful! My picky thirteen year old was the first to say "WOW! This is good!" I might try it with a little dash of lime next time!

    I wish I could have given this more stars because I think it does have potential. I have made this recipe twice. The first time I made as written and marinated for about 4 hours. I couldn't really taste the marinade at all but the salmon was quite tender and moist. The second time I reduced the oil by half and added 1/8 c.lemon for a bit of tang. This time I marinated the salmon for 12 hours but I still couldn't taste the dijon and only a slight taste of honey came through. I might reduce the oil even more and increase the marinade time to 24 hours. Hopefully I can make it work so that it is more flavourful!

    I am going to try this again. I didn't have fresh dill so I used dried. I also didn't use the total amount of honey b/c I am watching sugar but I think next time I will try it as written!

    Lovely recipe. I halved it, added the juice of half a lime, and a LOT more fresh dill (probably ~1/4 cup) for the marinade; my hands smelled like perfume as I was working! It was too hot to use the oven, so I wrapped the portioned and marinated salmon in aluminum foil and cooked them on my tiny barbeque dome grill for 20 minutes instead. The salmon came out very tender and moist. Thank you!


I am a coastal California girl, relocated to Arizona a few years back now. I never thought I would like Arizona, we were giving this locale a two year trial period. Well I'm here to say I love it here!! The state, the weather, the community and all that goes with it. Our favorite time of day is the morning, sitting out on the back patio with our coffee, watching all the bird life; quails, thrashers, sparrows, woodpeckers, starlings, mockingbirds, wrens and the cottontail bunny rabbits and the occasional coyote passing through the yard. We have wonderful weather 10 months out of the year, great sunsets and great neighbors, who could ask for more! My folks came to visit us, fell in love with the community as well and in three days they bought a place too! My Mom calls me the president of the Chamber of Commerce, because I showed her the benefits and amenities of our community, so that she fell in love with it as well. So I took the next logical step and got my Real Estate license and became a Realtor. I am passionate about my new community, my new profession and all the regional southwest cooking possibilities!
