Grilled Garlic Dijon Herb Salmon

Salmon fillets seasoned with a garlic, Dijon herb sauce and served with a squeeze of fresh lemon… delicious!!

Salmon is a fatty fish, rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamin A… and a great healthy dinner choice year round!

You can use a cast iron grill pan or the barbie for this dish- just be sure the grates are clean and oiled to prevent sticking. If you don’t own a BBQ this can also be made in the griller of your oven adding the mustard sauce during the last minute of cooking.

Servings: 4 • Calories: 233 • Fat: 7.9 g • Protein: 34.7 g • Carb: 3.1 g • Fiber: 0.1 g


  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp dried Herbs or 2 tsp of fresh Herbs (a mix of dill and parsley is what we fancy!)
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • olive oil
  • 4 (180-200g) salmon fillets
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 4 lemon wedges for serving


In a mini food processor, or using a mortar and pestle mash garlic with the herbs, vinegar, oil, and Dijon mustard until it becomes a paste. Set aside.

Season salmon with a pinch of salt and fresh pepper. Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat until hot. Spray the pan lightly with oil and reduce the heat to medium-low. Place the salmon on the hot grill pan and cook without moving for 5 minutes.   Turn and cook the other side for an additional 3-4 minutes spooning on half of the garlic herb mustard sauce.

Turn and cook 1 more minute spooning the other side of the fish with remaining sauce. Turn once again and let the fish finish cooking about one more minute. Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with fresh lemon wedges.
