Having guests over, but not sure what to serve? This Dijon Crusted Salmon recipe is the perfect choice to impress your guests with a sophisticated meal while also saving you time in the kitchen. Feel free to try other mustard flavors, basil instead of dill, or lowering the heat and cooking the salmon for a longer amount of time to increase the flavor (the suggested 400°F for 12-15 minutes is ideal for a busy night – or a hungry one!). Remember to keep this one in your recipe box, this salmon recipe is sure to become a kitchen regular!

This salmon is quick, easy and delicious. Dijon mustard is suggested but this recipe will also work with honey mustard or horseradish mustard. Dill can also be substituted with basil or parsley.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 28 oz salmon fillets, (about 4 x 7oz filets)
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • cooking spray


  • baking dish


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Place salmon fillets in greased baking dish, leaving space between each fillet.
  • In a small bowl, mix together mayo and dijon mustard until combined. Spread this mixture evenly on top of salmon fillets.
  • Combine breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and dill together and sprinkle on top of salmon fillets. This will be held in place by the dijon-mayo topping. Cover salmon fillets evenly.
  • Spray breadcrumb topping evenly with cooking spray to moisten breadcrumbs. This will make breadcrumbs crispy once cooked.
  • Bake salmon fillets uncovered for 12-15 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through. Salmon should be opaque and flake easily with a fork once done.
