"I have not tried this recipe. I got this recipe from The Everything Low Carb Cookbook. Sea bass or snapper can be substituted for the salmon."

Ready In:




  • In a medium size bowl, combine the mustard, orange zest, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, salt, pepper, butter, and 3 tablespoons of chives; mix well to blend.
  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • In a lightly buttered baking dish, place the fillets skin side down. Brush each fillet with the remaining lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Spread about 2-2 1/2 tablespoons of butter mixture over each fillet to coat evenly.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes or until done. To check for doneness, insert a thin-bladed knife into the thickest part of the fillet. The flesh should flake and separate easily and there should be no trace of translucence. The fish should be opaque and flaky. Transfer the fish to a warm platter and brush any remaining mustard chive butter over the fish while it is hot. Sprinkle with the remaining chives to garnish. Cut each fillet in half to serve.
  • Cooking Times For Fish: As a rule of thumb, you can expect fish to take about 12 minutes per inch to cook through in a preheated 425 oven.

  1. This was very good, the combination of ingredients added great flavor to the baked salmon. Very pretty too, with the chopped chives on top.

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her.
