Mustard-Crusted Salmon


From EatingWell:  Fall 2003, December 1997, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006), The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

This updated French bistro dish makes a simple dinner any night of the week. You might want to consider doubling the batch and using the remaining salmon in a tossed salad the next day.

4 servings | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil, then coat it with cooking spray.
  2. Place salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the prepared pan. Season with salt and pepper. Combine sour cream, mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl. Spread evenly over the salmon.
  3. Broil the salmon 5 inches from the heat source until it is opaque in the center, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
