Dijon Garlic Salmon
Salmon is delightful with Dijon mustard, garlic, onion, and a bit of tarragon. I created this dish for the low-carb diet I was on. Enjoy!!

Instead of tarragon, I used Herbes de Provence. I've never used that blend of herbs before and all I can say is WOW. It's a bit pricey, but the flavor these herbs bring to the dish is outstanding. My salmon turned out more like mustard-crusted, but it was delicious. Such an easy recipe with fabulous taste.Read More

Great recipe if you are a garlic and onions lover-which I am. Consideration for the general public prevented me from rating this 5 star. Heart smart and definitely full of flavor. Next time I make it I will take it a step further and add crushed red pepper for a little zip. Thanks for sharing:)
Another good option for cooking Salmon. I made a "Dijonaise" of light mayo and Dijon with a bunch of chopped garlic. Other than that...used the individual spices suggested by others rather than seasoning salt. A splash of white wine didn't hurt the moisture aspect any and adds to a mayo/dijon/garlic/wine sauce, albeit not of a large volume.
This recipe is easy and great. I use oregano instead of tarragon.
This was ok. I didn't like the flavors of dijon mustard and salmon together. It wasn't terrible though. I sauteed the onions first, which added to the flavor, in a good way. Served with whole wheat couscous and steamed broccoli.
My husband loves salmon. He said this was better than any he has had in a restaurant. And it's really simple. I left out the onion but it was great.
Love this combination but then again we love garlic and onions. Would probably saute onions a little first tho - anyway, it is a great recipe and healthy too!!! Thanks for submitting
This was terrific. I made a few changes. I cooked in a skillet with some olive oil the onion and garlic and added some portobello and button mushrooms then added them on top of the salmon per the recipe instructions. It was wonderful. I made the same thing with chicken for my husband since he doesn't like salmon and he liked his too.
This was good, but the recipe calls for way to much mustard. We will make it again, but we will cut the mustard down to about a third of what this recipe calls for. We couldn't taste the salmon with all the mustard.
I'd give it 6 stars if I could! Very easy and makes no mess to prepare! Great week-night meal. Very diet-friendly too! Only change I'd make- chop the onions a bit instead of rings to get the added flavor in each bite!
Fantastic recipe! I would never have tried it because the ingredients seemed so unusual, but the ratings convinced me to give it a go. Glad I did. I used herbes de province instead of tarragon. I followed the directions to lightly coat the fish with the dijon mustard, so only used about half the amount mentioned in the recipe. I think it was key to cut the onion very finely, as described in the recipe, that way the garlic and onions makes a fine layer over the fish and cooks adequately. Delicious!
Loved this easy recipe. Only changes I made were to use fresh tarragon from the garden (about 3T., finely chopped for 6 salmon fillets) and a Vidalia onion instead of red because that's what I had on hand. Made this for company and they really enjoyed it.
Hold the Dijon! I wanted to give a new flavor to the salmon I had ready to cook and thought this looked amazing. I didn't have tarragon or onions, so I just put Dijon garlic and a little Cajun seasoning for some heat. I was overwhelmed by the dijon but I think it will be better next time with some changes for my taste. I will use less Dijon, cook the onion and garlic first and skip my Cajun idea
I made this recipe last night. It was really amazing! My husband and kids loved it! Very easy preparation!
Super fast and easy, and very, very good! I substituted onion powder for slices of onion. Served to guests who also loved it.
Perfect! Used a shallot in place of red onion (only because that's all I had on-hand). Very nice dish!
Excellent. No modifications necessary, this was enjoyed by all!
I didn't like this that well. The amount of mustard overpowered the delicate taste of the salmon. I think if maybe a quarter of the mustard were used, along with some white wine and honey, this would be a pretty good dish. As is, it's not very enjoyable. Thanks anyway.
My husband and I thought this was great! I love garlic and onion so this was perfect for me. I used a Vidalia onion since that was all I had on hand & it was delicious. I may grill the onion slightly next time like some other reviewers did just to make sure it cooks through on the fish. The salmon was nice and moist. Really enjoyed it and will make it again!
That mustard and tarragon combo is heavenly! Definitely the right spice for this! I added 1 Tbsp of honey to the Dijon to provide more balance to the harshness of this kind of mustard. Delicious! Not too sweet. I chopped my garlic and placed it on top of the fish like a crust. Worked out great. My onions turned out perfect. I think the key is slicing them paper thin. I also sprinkled the whole thing with olive oil before popping it in the oven. I think that helped cook the onions better. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
I liked it okay, however, my husband didn't care for the dijon flavor with salmon.
i used smaller fillets ( about 3 oz) so i halved the baking time, and i didn"t have any tarragon so i put a little parmesean cheese over top of the mustard, garlic, onion etc. served with sauteed spinach over brown rice. it was awesome! super moist and yummy. this has definitely become my go-to salmon recipe!
I mostly tasted the garlic and onion… a bit too much. I offset the taste by adding a light layer of my homemade tartar sauce. I like a reviewers suggestion of using "Dijonaise" (a marriage between Dijon and Mayo ;). Also, the cooking time was a bit too much so be careful with that.
This is my new go to salmon recipe. the first time i made it, i felt that the onions were undercooked. i remedied this the next time by prebaking the onions and garlic for 10 minutes before adding it to the top of the fish.
I eat this all the time. My only changes are that I omit the salt and pile on tons of onions.
Huge hit with the whole family! I have a really hard time getting my boys (12 and 7 year old twins) to eat fish. They asked for seconds with this dish. Will be adding this to our dinner rotation.
The onion and garlic were much too strong when simply sliced and placed on top of the mustard. I would try sauteing them or leave them off completely, although I'm not sure I'll try this recipe again. Much better ways to cook salmon out there!
it was ok - needed something more
I was a little leary of the Dijon on salmon but this recipe was delicious. It was very quick and easy to make. It smelled nice only 1 minute after going in the oven. The flavors combined nicely but were not overwhelming or strong. My husband and 2 year old son ate alot of it and my son is a picky eater usually. I'd so recommend this recipe to anyone who loves fish.
excellent salmon nice taste will definately make again
Make as stated...was good onions were still crunchy. Will have to remedy that next time...
Truthfully Hubby & I were both very disappointed in this recipe.. we both LOVE garlic but just felt like it was very bland & missing something.. I would not make it again.. Each to their own, I guess....
Great flavors from a simple, quick, healthy dish. If I make it again I will use shallots instead of a red onion. The cuts of salmon I had were thick, so I had to bake for several minutes longer than noted here for it to cook all the way through.
Excellent heart healthy recipe. Tastes great with roasted vegetables. The South Beach Diet does not feel like it's a diet at all. What good eating. Yummy eating.
Very, very good recipe and one we will repeat. Made it exactly as written except used leeks instead of red onions. We all enjoyed it, it just wasn't exceptional.
Was not real impressed with this one. Too much dijon mustard. I think it took away from the flavor of the fish.
It was tastey. My daughters thought it was good.
Followed directions - no changes made. This was great! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks for posting the recipe!
So easy and delicious, didn’t make any changes. Broiled for the last 5 minutes to crisp up the top. Highly recommended!
I made this with my husband a few weeks ago and it was so good. I could not imagine how easy and tasty it woudl turn out. THanks. Anna:)
Loved it. So did my family. I did add mayonnaise to the Dijon.
Excellent! Not only was this quick and easy to prepare, but it presents itself on the table as elegant! Thanks!
Our family loved this, thanks!
This was one of the best fish recipes I've tried in a long time. We both like a lot of flavor and spices on our food and this definitely met the bill! Thanks for sharing!
I thought is was just okay. The dijon with the salmon was not the best combination in my opinion. But it was easy and came out fine.
not nearly as good as the dill salmon
Very healthy and delish! I rubbed olive oil over both sides. Then I minced the onions and garlic and added 1T of honey plus crushed red pepper to the mustard. Spread it all over the top and sprinkles tarragon S&P over the top. Cooked it on the grill. Yum! Goes great with a Caesar salad. Thanks for the great recipe!
Easy to make and tastes great. Love this recipe.
This was tasty and my husband made it gourmet by prettily arranging the toppings ;) We didn't measure out the mustard-just made sure to lightly coat-he brushed it on with a basting brush. Also, we used a smaller casserole dish and cooked for about 11 minutes (20 is WAY too long!)
This recipe was easy to make and absolutely delicious. I followed the directions without change. Even my husband liked it and he's not a salmon fan.
Very nice dish ! However I found the onions not cooked enough so I marbled them the next time before layering on top and this did the trick.
This was okay...the fish overpowered the dijon so I had a dipping cup of dijon on the side. Definitely pre-sweat onions, oven time didn't cook them enough. Thought I added a lot of garlic but it just didn't come through. Don't know if I'll be trying this again.
Yummy, the entire family enjoyed. I followed the recipe as written.
Thanks for this quick and tasty recipe! I didn't want to heat up the house thus: used 2 pans, sauteed the onions & garlic together with salt & pepper in one, seared the skin side of the salmon (with flesh side coated in mustard/salt/pepper) in another oven proof one. Broiled the salmon to finish, topped with fresh tarragon from my garden. Wow,now that was good! Once again, thanks for this easy and yummy recipe :)
I was scared to use the amount of dijon mustard that the recipe originally called for. I used just enough mustard to coat the fish and the flavor combination of the mustard, onions, garlic and spices were subtle and very good. Maybe using the full amount of mustard will give it a better taste but it wasn't necessary for me. I will definitely prepare this dish again. Thank you FresnoCook!
Tried this recipe with a few tweeks. Used lime juice instead of lemon and sprinkled filets with Tajin a Mexican chili lime seasoning. Wrapped in the foil with garlic and dill cooked for 25 min at 450. The salmon came out so juicy and flavorful. A very simple recipe that I will try many more times. My daughter tried it as the recipe states and loved it also
Way too much dijon, it completely overpowered the taste of the fish and the seasonings.
Made this tonight for a little change the traditional way I fix Salmon. My husband and I both liked it a lot. The only change I made was not adding the onion. I would fix this again for sure.
Super easy to make and gives the salmon a nice flavor - not too sweet , easy sauce
I normally don't like salmon but this added great flavor to the fish. I will definitely make again.
loved the flavors but overcooked ~ needs to cook for about 9 minutes to suit my taste....I also make salmon using dijon, dill, garlic and sliced lemon....9 minutes in a 350 over skin side down and no need to turn it....
Excellent and delicate blend of flavors. Didn’t have a red onion so I used chopped yellow onion and I didn’t have garlic bulb so used jarred chopped garlic.
I like it, but didn't love it. The flavors were a little too strong for me. That may have been because I scaled the recipe back to 1 portion only (my husband doesn't like fish), and I think it's difficult to keep the seasoning ratios intact-- so that may have been the problem.
this ok- i added some chili flakes
Followed recipe, except that I sauteed the onions and garlic before putting on top of the mustard - added a squeeze of mayo to make it creamier. Use the tarragon as instructed. This was good - hubby didn't like the onions on top and I thought the mustard flavor was too strong. Definitely not my favorite way to make salmon but maybe you will like it!
It was better than I expected.
This is a tasty and simple recipe. But, cooking time depends on the thickness of the fillets. 20 minutes would have been too long for ours. Also recommend mixing spices with dijon before spreading it on.
My husband said to give this a 5 +. I used the Dijon Mustard added garlic salt and powder, Pampered Chef Dill Mix, and pepper. Served it with lemon wedges.
Perfect just as the recipe is. My husband said he’d order this in a restaurant. Thumbs up!
Very Good. My son and I both enjoyed this recipe. I did not realize I was out of tarragon when I started to make this so had to leave that out. Tasted great w/o it any way. Thanks for the recipe.
Delicious! Made it as directed except I mixed all the spices with the Dijon and used minced fresh garlic and minced dried onion instead of the slices. Will definitely be making this low cost dish pretty regular. I am trying to start meal prepping healthy dishes that are also low carb...and this fits the bill.
I don't like fish, but I know that I have to eat it sometimes just for the health benefits. This was a great recipe. I used spicy brown mustard since I didn't have any dijon and both my husband and I enjoyed it. I'll be making it again.
This is my go to salmon recipe! Super easy
Ok - some liked it more than others.
No changes. I found the garlic and onions weren't cooked enough. Next time I will saute them to soften and then maybe cover with foil. Otherwise the taste was great.
Great taste and easy
Marinade on baking pan and layer on top. EASY!!!! Remember to slice red onion super thin so they don't overpower.
Delicious and so easy. The salmon is cooked perfectly. I did not have tarragon so used a 5-Spice mix. Suitable for a dinner party
This was so easy to make and was so flavorful and delicious. Tasted like a gourmet dish, with so little preparation!
I made this. This is now my hubby’s favorite salmon recipe. I did not see that coming!
Very good! my hubbys favorite slamon recipe yet. I just don't understand why the recipe calls for 1/3 cup of mustard when "lightly coating" the salmon on requires a few tablespoons.
I made this for an Appreciation Dinner last week, and everyone loved it. It was easy to fix, too!
This is yummmmmy! Made it as instructed. I am making again for the 2nd time next week. The only thing I will do different is to add more garlic & red onion and perhaps cook for only 10-15 minutes!! (if you like rare salmon) Enjoy ... it is very good!!
Easy and fantastic! I don't even like fish and I enjoyed it!
So simple but delicious! I had trouble with broiling the salmon as it got too brown before cooking completely. Will likely bake it next time, but there will be a next time! My husband who doesn't care for fish really like it!!
This was a very tasty and easy recipe and a change from my normal salmon dinners. It tasted and looked like a dish from a fancy restaurant and my hubby loved it. I served it with couscous and a salad. Will definitely make again.
I made this exactly according to the recipe, and it was great. I had some trepidation, as my wife tends to like salmon unadorned, but she loved this! A keeper.
Less cooking time, in my oven, anyway. Less garlic, more dijon and I used dill and parsley, not tarragon. The onions were amazing! Crispy and flavorful!
This recipe was wonderful . Very easy and my husband gave it two thumbs up. I am always pleased with a recipe that gets rave reviews from my husband. I did however, because I am not a fan of Dijon mustard, use a Carolina style barbeque sauce to glaze my piece of salmon and it was off the hook. I would highly recommend this recipe for anyone that likes salmon and is looking for a way to spice up their normal salmon dinner choices.
This is a quick delicious meal. I work a lot so to have something that is healthy and quick to make when I get home late is awesome!
Absolutely delicious and so full of flavor. I love dijon, so I used a little more than the recipe called for. I also used shallots instead of the red onion, since I was only making 2 fillets. And as someone else suggested, I substituted oregano for the tarragon. Served over a bed of couscous or rice for a wonderful meal.
Loved it. I first thought the Dijon would mask everything else but it actually tied it all together. Great recipe will make this again fore sure.
My husband and I really enjoed this. A great twist on normal salmon.
I found the dijon was too strong a flavor to really complement the salmon well, and it also overpowered the garlic which I then couldn't taste. I might use the cooking method again but not these toppings/seasonings.
This was a hit in my house. I followed the recipe and my husband, teenage son and I gobbled it up. Only thing I will change is I plan to dice the onions instead of slice them next time to ensure each bite has a little bit of that crunch the onion gives.
This recipe was bland and did zero favors for the fish. It’s easy enough to make, but in my opinion there need to be major adjustments to the recipe.
it was a different way to cook salmon but I followed the recipe exactly and I liked it! Try it if you really like garlic and onions!
I love the simplicity of this recipe but after reading the reviews I decided to cut the mustard in half. It was still way too much. Next time I make it I will go with 1/3 to 1/2 of the onion and garlic and only very lightly brush on the mustard - probably using a 1/4 of what it class for. It has potential but definitely needs to be toned down so you can actually taste the salmon.
Delicous! This is an easy and very tasty recipe.
