Honey Mustard Almond Crusted Salmon

Honey Mustard Almond Crusted Salmon

With just a handful of ingredients, you can have a simple, satisfying and healthy dinner. That’s why I love this honey mustard almond crusted salmon. It’s perfect for a weeknight dinner because it takes just 20 minutes to make. I had some leftover cooked quinoa in the refrigerator so I tossed it together with arugula, feta and my basic vinaigrette to serve along side it.

Serves 2


  • 2 salmon filets
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, crushed and lightly toasted*
  • A squeeze of lemon for serving


Preheat oven to 375F, season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper and place in a small glass baking dish drizzled with olive oil.

Whisk the Dijon and honey together in a small bowl, stir in toasted almonds, spoon mixture over salmon and bake for 12-15 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon and the quinoa arugula salad.

*For the almonds: Place almonds in a bag, seal it and use a rolling pin to crush them. Then toast them in a small pan over low heat for 3-5 minutes until just golden and toasty.

I hope you have a great weekend!
