Broiled Salmon with Herb-Mustard Glaze

This is a Giada recipe that we tweeked only out of necessity. It was super tasty, and a super quick way to enjoy a delicious salmon dinner!

  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves (dried is ok, too)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves (use fresh if you have it!)
  • 1/2 tablespoon dry white wine
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (we only had Trader Joe’s Garlic Dijon Mustard Aioli, so we used 2 Tbsp of that!)
  • 1 tablespoons whole-grain mustard (use this if you have it! see above!)
  • Nonstick olive oil cooking spray
  • 2 6 ounce salmon fillets
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 lemon wedges (optional)

In a mini food processor, combine garlic, rosemary, thyme, wine, oil, mustard. Grind the mustard sauce until combined, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl. Set aside mustard sauce.

Preheat the broiler. Line a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray the foil with nonstick spray. Arrange the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Broil for 2 minutes. Spoon the mustard sauce over the fillets. Continue broiling until the fillets are just cooked through and golden brown, about 5 minutes longer.

Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with lemon wedges.

This is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe that we found in a her Everyday Italian cookbook. You can also find it here. We halved the recipe because there are just 2 of us!

  1. In some of our earlier posts, we included pricing to demonstrate the frugality of the recipes. However, we soon realized that pricing varies so much on groceries depending on region, stores, seasons, country and many other factors. We still hope you can find some frugal ideas here, and encourage you to find the best deal you can on quality ingredients. Thanks!
