Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Grease one side of a sheet of aluminum foil with vegetable oil.

  • Stir honey mustard, soy sauce, lemon juice, dill, rosemary, and thyme together in a bowl. Place salmon fillet onto prepared aluminum foil sheet. Brush honey mustard mixture over salmon. Wrap foil around salmon and seal edges to form a packet; let marinate for 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cook salmon in the foil packet until it flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 13 minutes. Open packet and let salmon cook until the moisture atop salmon dries slightly, about 2 minutes more.


Cook's Note:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Should work in an oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) with extra cooking time, but I always do this on the BBQ.

BBQ cooking time: 10 minutes for 3/4-inch thick fillet. Add 5 minutes per each additional 1/4 inch of thickness.

Open foil for last 2 minutes (or longer) of cooking for a dryer end-product.

This was pretty good--easy to make and to clean up too. I used sockeye salmon--the first time I've actually bought that kind--and maybe that wasn't my best choice. I think that next time I make this I will add capers to the packet! I will make this again using another type of salmon. Thanks TIMJCRAWFORD! Read More

Like AcaCandy I used this on chicken rather than salmon. I've often topped chicken with mustard and soy sauce. This is a nice improvement on that. I didn't put all of the sauce on the chicken and used the remainder as a dipping sauce. I plan to try this on salmon too. Read More

Followed the recipe and it turned out great. Didn't have any honey mustard so made my own. Looks like I got two new recipes out of one meal. Yes will definitely do it again. Read More

I'm rating just the sauce as I was fresh out of salmon and used chicken instead but the sauce is totally awesome!!! I did sub olive oil and lime juice as lemons are hard to find here and I prefer to cook with olive or avocado oil. Read More
