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 6 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.

How to make Maple Dijon Salmon

  • Preheat grill: To medium high heat. Spray the grill with cooking spray.
  • Make the sauce: In a small bowl combine maple, mustard, chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder.
  • Cook: Brush half of the sauce on the salmon, set the rest of the sauce aside. Place the salmon skin side down and cook for 4-5 minutes then flip. Cook for an additional 4 minutes or until fully cooked. (depends on thickness of salmon)
  • Serve: Spoon the rest of the sauce on the salmon and serve immediately.

What to serve with Grilled Maple Dijon Salmon

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. Once the salmon is cooked allow to cool slightly and remove the skin.
  • I grilled the salmon but this would also be wonderful in the oven or on the stove top.

    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?

  • Hi!

    I brush it on the flesh side of the salmon.

    Thanks & Enjoy!

    You mentioned that this could be done on the stove top or in the oven ~ could you give instructions for each, please♡♡♡

  • Hi Michelle!

    For stove top method:
    Add olive oil to a large skillet. When the pan is hot add in salmon skin side down. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. The salmon should start to turn opaque. Take off of the heat. When the salmon is cool enough to handle peel off the skin. Serve immediately brushed with the maple dijon sauce.

    For oven method:
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray or layer with parchment paper. Brush with the maple dijon sauce. Place in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through. Make sure not to overcook the salmon. When the salmon is cool enough to handle peel off the skin.
