Salmon with Mustard SaucePosted by in Fish | Parchment Paper Packets
We eat a lot of salmon in this house. And since our trip to Alaska this past summer, we’re eating even more. Mr. NoPot and our son went on a salmon fishing trip and the fish they caught was flash frozen and shipped back home. I’ve got a freezer full of salmon, so we’re eating it about once a week. In the summer I usually grill it, but once the weather changes, I have to find other alternatives. Parchment paper packets is a fantastic way to cook fish. It keeps all the moisture in, cooks it evenly, and creates no mess! You’re going to love the simplicity of this and be amazed by the flavor.
Salmon with Mustard Sauce
4 individual salmon filets (5-6 oz) or one family size (1 lb to 1 1/4 lbs)
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper
Mix the lemon juice, mustard, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Place the salmon in the center of the parchment paper. Spoon sauce over salmon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Seal the packet(s). Bake at 400 degrees. If you’re making one family size filet, bake for 30 minutes. If you’re making 4 individual pieces, bake for 15 minutes.

I love salmon with mustard, but have never tried making it without the mess of clean-up, so I really appreciate finding this recipe. Thanks so much!
I love cooking fish this way, although I usually use aluminum foil. I’ve been on a mustard kick lately, so I definitely want to try this recipe.
Oh, I might have to try this with some of the fish we have available locally. Sounds good!
I love salmon, but we rarely had it growing up. Ironically, my mom lived in Alaska long enough that salmon was so commonplace she grew to the point that she didn’t like it. Maybe I could win her over again with this recipe. But I’ll make sure to try it with my kids first.
I love fish, but in recently years my DH has developed quite an “allergy” to it. His mouths feels weird. His throat hurts. He cannot taste anything for a few days. It’s creepy.
We’ve tried different kinds of fish. We’ve tried different preparations. We’ve tried frozen. We’ve tried fresh. We’ve tired sushi.
It’s the strangest thing.
Still … I sometimes make it just for me, and I cook something else for him.
That is very weird.
We love salmon at our house. I’m always looking for new ways to cook it. Love the easy cleanup using parchment paper. No pot cooking is the way to go!
Salmon’s my favorite fish – and I love this recipe. Easy, no clean-up. Can’t wait to try it.
We live on salmon here – thanks for this new way of cooking it! I love the idea of a new mess.
My husband and I both really enjoy eating salmon. This recipe looks great!
