Grilled Maple Dijon Salmon

This is one of the easiest dinners you will ever make! Not to mention it’s absolutely delicious. This maple dijon salmon takes only 20 minutes and requires only 5 ingredients which you probably already have in your pantry.

The sauce is the best part of this recipe. Sweet and sticky from the honey and tangy from the dijon mustard.

I grilled the salmon but this would also be wonderful in the oven or on the stove top.

A couple tips for making this salmon:

    ✓ Try not to force the salmon while flipping. If it’s sticking to the grill give it a minute or two and it will release from the grill on it’s own when it’s ready to flip.
    ✓ Leave the skin on the salmon during cooking. This helps the salmon stay together and not fall apart when flipping.

Serve with rice and a vegetable and enjoy!

    Hi Kelley,
    In reviewing your Grilled Maple Dijon Salmon recipe, I did not see ‘Maple’ included in the list of ingredients nor in in the instructions. Thanks.

    Hi, just made the dish and enjoyed it but something was missing. Do you think maybe next time some fresh lemon juice would be OK.Peg

    • Hi Peg!

      Yes of course! Fresh squeezed lemon before serving would be awesome.

      Thanks & Enjoy!

    Do you brush the marinade on the skin side or on the flesh side of the salmon or both?
