Garlic Butter Honey Mustard Salmon Recipe

A deliciously easy and flavorful salmon dish featuring a perfect blend of garlic, butter, honey, and mustard. This recipe creates a savory and slightly sweet glaze that complements the tender and flaky salmon, making it an ideal choice for a quick weeknight dinner or a special occasion.


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Prepare the Sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the honey, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, and lemon juice. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, until well combined. Remove from heat.
  3. Season the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Season each fillet with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Glaze the Salmon: Brush the garlic butter honey mustard sauce generously over each salmon fillet, making sure they are well coated.
  5. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Once done, remove from the oven and garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side.
