Herbed Mustard Salmon

Hubby and I eat salmon on a fairly regular basis. We both really enjoy the flavor and it’s just so easy to prepare. We usually just season the salmon with salt and pepper and throw it in the oven to roast. Since we eat it so frequently, I’m always keeping my eye out for a new way to prepare it.

Herbed Mustard Salmon

I first made this herbed mustard salmon a couple years ago. Since then, it has become a regular in our dinnertime rotation, but I just never got around to photographing it and posting it for you guys. I like to use whatever mustard we have on hand (which usually includes more than one option) and whatever herbs we have on hand. I like this combination of parsley, rosemary, and dijon the best.

    Lemon and cilantro are the perfect couple! I love your story — I have a notebook with family recipes in it with names like “Christina’s Dip” or “Mary’s Potato Salad” (yes, I have a potato salad lady too!). I feel that it is only fitting to name the dish after them 🙂

    That looks great! We are having the in-laws over Friday night and grilling burgers and I think this will be a perfect side!

    Hubby’s Mom here: for those who don’t like cilantro (and I know, hard to believe there are people who don’t like it), you can substitute basil. This potato salad is really good either way.

    This sounds wonderfully fresh and flavorful. I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise-y potato salad so this sounds great!

    Marguerite – If you’re using shallots instead of scallions, just add them in near the end where it says to stir in the scallion.s
