Mona’s Family Favorites: This recipe is one of my weekday dinner secrets that I must share! The sweet and sour combination of honey, mustard, and dill produces an outstanding glaze for fresh salmon. And with only five minutes of prep time, you don’t get any easier than this, at least not with results that taste this good! The glaze is also great on chicken breasts too!

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill

  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the Dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper to create a glaze.
  2. Place the salmon fillets in the glaze, and toss until evenly coated. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to marinate.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and spray a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. Place the marinated salmon fillets on the sheet pan, and drizzle any remaining glaze over top.
  5. Bake for 15–20 minutes, just until the thickest fillet flakes with a fork.

HELPFUL TIP: You can also use this exact same method and glaze recipe to prepare 4 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts by simply increasing the bake time to 20–25 minutes. Each chicken breast will contain 280 calories.
