This maple dijon salmon is a delicious way to switch up your fish game! It’s topped with a sweet & savory, sauce, fresh herbs, and perfectly cooked to yield delicious, flakey salmon.
Pair it with your favorite side salad, roasted potatoes, or veggie side dish. It comes together in just about 20 minutes, and is a simple weeknight dinner that the whole family will love!
I’m all about keeping weeknight dinners simple. This glaze is made with just 6 basic ingredients, and truly elevates this dish. Not to mention, it looks gorgeous with all of those fresh herbs!
I originally made this dish a few weeks ago for my in-laws when they stopped by for lunch. It was so easy to make, and the sweet and savory flavors were unbeatable. I knew I had to remake it for the blog.
I served it this week with a spinach salad topped with a balsamic glaze and fresh mozzarella, plus some latkes that i’m testing (coming soon!)
These flavors would pair well with just about anything!
What to serve with your Maple Dijon Salmon:
- Roasted brussels sprouts, like these maple balsamic roasted sprouts
- Crispy potatoes, or my favorite garlic smashed potatoes
- Oven-baked crispy zucchini chips
- A hearty side salad, like this Thai salad with peanut dressing
I like to switch up the herbs when I make this. Parsley, cilantro and dill would be my top 3 choices for this salmon. I love using a grainy dijon mustard for this, but any would work well!
REHEATING LEFTOVERS: leftover salmon doesn’t always heat up the best, so I like to either eat it cold over a salad, or heat it up on a skillet for a few minutes so it gets crispy. Leftovers should stay fresh for up to 3 days.
I can’t wait to hear what you guys think!
