Chives2 tbsp
English Mustard45 g
Paprika2 tsp
Garlic Powder1 pinch
Black Pepper1 tsp
Honey2 tbsp
Salmon Fillet450 g

step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F) before preparing this spiced baked salmon.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the dried chives, mustard, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and honey. Next, squeeze in the juice of the lemon with the help of a lemon squeezer to hold the seeds.

Stir well until you have a smooth and creamy mixture.

step 2

Line the bottom of a baking tray with parchment paper or lightly grease it with vegetable oil and lay the salmon fillets in it.

If you use a non-stick tray you can place salmon fillets straight in the tin without the need of baking paper or greasing.

With the help of a spoon or a spatula spread the honey and mustard sauce to coat the top of the fresh salmon fillet.

step 3

Roast for 12 minutes at 200°C (392°F).

Check that the salmon is thoroughly cooked and the spiced mustard sauce is lightly browned before removing the tray from the oven. However, avoid overcooking the fish or it will become chewy and dry. The middle of the salmon fillet should be just lightly cooked and have a slightly lighter tone, for the extra softness.

Finally, remove from the oven and serve with a good sprinkle of chives and a splash of lemon juice.

Baked honey mustard glazed salmon


  • Try to use smoked paprika instead of the classic paprika for extra flavour.

  • If you are using thick and dense honey, just warm it up before adding it to the other ingredients. This way, it will be incorporated more easily.

  • If you prefer baked salmon with a crispier result, you can switch the oven to grill settings for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. If instead, you are looking for a tender finish, cover the tray with a sheet of foil before placing in the oven.
