This grilled salmon is seasoned with a Dijon mustard sauce made with Dijon, herbs de Provence, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and garlic for an easy dinner. I’m always trying to develop new, creative ways to eat this flavorful fish because of all the health benefits the omega-3s provide.

How to Cook Salmon

I used a cast-iron grill pan to cook this Dijon herb salmon, but an outdoor grill also works. Make sure the grates are clean and oiled to prevent sticking. If you don’t own a grill, you can also make it in your oven’s broiler, adding the mustard sauce during the last minute of cooking.

My salmon fillets were about one inch thick, which take nine to ten minutes to cook through. If your fish is thinner, reduce the total cooking time. It’s done once the fish flakes with a fork and is still a little translucent.

What to Serve with Dijon Herb Salmon

I served my Dijon salmon with Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus. It would also be great with roasted green beans, a salad, or orzo.


  • Herbs: Herbs de Provence is a French herb mixture that typically includes dried fennel, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, and others. If you don’t have herbs de Provence, you can use any mix of dried herbs that you like.
  • Fish: Frozen salmon will work if you don’t have fresh. You can use this Dijon sauce on any fish, like halibut, flounder, or mahi mahi.

Salmon fillets seasoned with a garlic, Dijon herb sauce and served with a squeeze of fresh lemon... delicious!!


  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp dried Herbs de Provence
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • olive oil spray, I used my misto
  • 4 6 oz wild salmon fillets, 1" thick (if frozen, thaw first)
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 4 lemon wedges for serving


  • In a mini food processor, or using a mortar and pestle mash garlic with the herbs, vinegar, oil, and Dijon mustard until it becomes a paste. Set aside.
  • Season salmon with a pinch of salt and fresh pepper. Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat until hot. Spray the pan lightly with oil and reduce the heat to medium-low. Place the salmon on the hot grill pan and cook without moving for 5 minutes.
  • Turn and cook the other side for an additional 3-4 minutes spooning on half of the garlic herb mustard sauce.
  • Turn and cook 1 more minute spooning the other side of the fish with remaining sauce. Turn once again and let the fish finish cooking about one more minute.
  • **Note: the fish should have a total cooking time of about 9-10 minutes per inch. If your fish is thinner, reduce the total cooking time.
  • Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with fresh lemon wedges.

  1. Excellent 

  2. Very yummy meal! Have made it 3x so far and love it. Quick question on the nutritional info however – 6 Oz of salmon is about 350 calories so how does this come out at 234?

    • It’s ~240 if you use wild coho salmon. Yes, you will be closer to 350 if you use farmed atlantic salmon.

  3. This recipe looks awesome and I would like to try it in my air fryer without the basket insert.

  4. This was AMAZING! My husband and I loved this grilled salmon, and it was so easy to make too. We had it with baked zucchini and cauliflower rice. Thank you for working so hard to provide tasty yet healthy recipes!

  5. This was an easy and delicious keto recipe! Thanks, Gina. Another winner!

  6. Gina thanks  So good!! I made this tonight for my husband and I (hubby picky eater!). Hubby loved it!! Does this marinade/paste work with chicken? What else would work well with this paste? Thanks 

  7. Has anyone tried this with chicken? My family aren’t big fish eaters so trying to figure out if I could just substitute chicken instead of the salmon.

  8. Excellent flavor. Did the method mentioned of just doing a broil, didn’t take long at all 4-5 minutes ( thinner salmon filet) and then added the topping for another minute or so, Great! Did the asparagus with it also and some spiral zucchini with grape tomato, and some greens, plus chopped herb. . Pretty plate. Had the blueberry slump from your cookbook for dessert. Perfect!
