Easy Mustard-Glazed Broiled Salmon


This simple recipe makes a great salmon glaze. The sugar in the seasoned rice vinegar caramelizes under the broiler and the sweet, salty vinegar works perfectly with the tangy mustard. While my original recipe only had two ingredients, I've added Sriracha hot sauce and a pinch of salt.

2 servings


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce (Optional)

  • salt to taste

  • 2 (5 ounce) salmon fillets


  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and rub with vegetable oil.

  2. Stir mustard, vinegar, Sriracha sauce, and salt together in a bowl until glaze is smooth.

  3. Lay salmon fillets, skin-side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Brush fillets with mustard glaze.

  4. Cook in the preheated oven until salmon is golden and flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 8 minutes.
