Roasted Salmon with Herbs


The fishmonger at the farmers market had some beautiful Pacific Salmon this weekend that was screaming eat me! Eat me! So i did 😉

This recipe is from with a couple tweaks. Super easy, quick and best of all yummy! The fresh herbs really make it.

1/3 c mayonnaise
1/4 c spicy brown mustard (such as Gulden’s)
6 TBSP chopped fresh tarragon
6 TBSP chopped fresh chives
Juice of one lemon juice
Zest of one lemon
Salmon filet with skin on

Preheat oven to 450.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix first 7 ingredients in medium bowl. Season mustard sauce lightly with salt and generously with pepper. Place salmon, skin side down on baking sheet. Spoon 1/2 cup mustard sauce atop salmon, then spread over, covering completely. Sprinkle salmon generously with salt and pepper.

Roast just until salmon is opaque in center, about 15 minutes. Using parchment as aid, transfer salmon to platter. Cut crosswise into pieces and serve with remaining mustard sauce.
