The salmon flakes so easily and is packed with flavor. I love it with a loaded kale salad, roasted potatoes or a fresh pasta salad.

How to make honey mustard salmon

  1. Coat the salmon in the honey mustard mix then top with a mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika
  2. In a small bowl, season the breadcrumbs lightly with the same spices then toss together with chopped parsley and olive oil. Sprinkle over the salmon and gently press down
  3. Top the salmon with a light drizzle of olive oil, then bake for about 12-15 minutes

Depending on the thickness of your salmon, you may need to adjust the cooking time. It should flake easily when ready. If you’re preparing this recipe with 4 individual fillets, you will likely need to bake it for less time, closer to 10-12 minutes.

This recipe is easy to make, packed with flavor, and one of our favorite weeknight meals. Check out some of my suggested side dishes to pair with this meal below.
