  • Place the salmon onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil with the skin side down. Rub the mustard into the flesh of the salmon and then spread the brown sugar evenly over the fish. Squeeze the lemon over the salmon. Bring the edges of the foil together and seal into a packet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 25 to 30 minutes.

This was very disappointing. The timing and temperature make for dried salmon. I would recommend 20 minutes max. and perhaps 350 degrees cooking temperature. I won't be making this version again. Read More

8.25.11 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/178249/dads-candied-salmon/ ... Time & temp left me with dry, overcooked fish that is mildly sweet with no other flavor. I checked the date on the mustard to be sure it wasn't old. Very disappointed. Read More

My husband and 20 month old loved this!! It was a bit too mustardy for my preference but certainly nothing that would stop me from eating it nor making it again. Thanks for a unique but easy and tasty salmon recipe! Read More

This was very good and a fast easy recipe. There were no conplaints but the next time I will alter it's cooking method perhaps try it on the grill because it was extremely juicy. The fish let out so much liquid most of the flavor washed off in the juice. I had to spoon it back over before serving. Maybe it had to do with the freshness of the fish here locally in Oregon or not don't know. Read More
