Fabulous Freelancer Foodie Recipe: Roasted Salmon with Honey-Dijon Glaze

Try this roasted salmon with honey-Dijon glaze the next time you’re looking for a meal to pair with a salad, vegetables, or even pasta!

Note: this an adaptation of Anna Watson Carl’s recipe in The Yellow Table.


  • A 1 ¾ lb. piece of salmon with the skin still on.
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon that has been cut in half
  • 7 springs of fresh thyme


  1. An oven should be preheated to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Use aluminum foil to line a baking sheet.
  3. Arrange the salmon with its skin side down on the baking sheet, sprinkling with salt and pepper.
  4. Whisk the olive oil, honey, and mustard together in a small bowl, then pour the mixture over the salmon.
  5. Take one of the lemon halves and cut it into thin slices.
  6. Place the thyme and the lemon slices on top of the salmon and bake the salmon for about 12 minutes until it’s “just” cooked.
  7. Remove the salmon from the oven, squeeze the remaining lemon half over it, and serve.
