Skinnytaste’s Garlic Dijon Herb Salmon

Since we live in apartment in the city, we don’t have a grill. This kind of makes me sad because I loved grilling when we owned a house in the suburbs. I had this awesome grill and I used it all of the time.  Now I have to rely on my Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler when I want to “grill” something. And I gotta tell ya; as much as I love that thing, it’s just not the same. But I got that sucker out when I wanted to make Skinnytaste’s Grilled Garlic Dijon Herb Salmon. Now I’m not much of a Salmon person, but I gotta tell you that when I saw her post on it she made me want to try it.

[Skinnytaste Grilled Garlic Dijon Herb Salmon recipe is here]


  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp dried Penzeys  Herbs de Provence
  • 1 tsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • olive oil spray
  • 3 (3 oz) wild salmon steaks (if frozen, thaw first)
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 4 lemon wedges for serving


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. Note: the fish should have a total cooking time of about 9-10 minutes per inch. If your fish is thinner, reduce the total cooking time.

Transfer the fillets to plates and serve with fresh lemon wedges.

I have to say that this was pretty good! It was nice to have something different than usual. I get tired of having the same stuff over and over. So this was a welcomed change. I think the next time I’d use regular salmon fillets, but I did enjoy trying the salmon steaks. I just wasn’t too fond of the bones, but I guess you’ll run into those no matter what. The Garlic Dijon Herb Sauce/Paste was very good! I was expecting it to be a little stronger than it was, so that was good. I’d definitely try this sauce with some other types of fish as well. This is a must try – it’s a nice, light dish that is healthy for you!
